Hello! With all the holiday wossnames going on & the home WiFi that my computer Does Not Talk To, I’ve been a bit remiss with my posting duties. I’ve been doing my nails & taking pictures of them, it’s just that I’ve had precious little time to blog. Also, PHEW that I have no readers, since I realized that in my last post, I left in a placeholder that I’d meant to replace with real content. La la la, you never noticed that, it’s all fixed now.
My birthday is only a few days after Christmas, so I put on a few coats of China Glaze’s “Naughty and Nice” to tide me over until it was time to do a sparkly manicure.
You might have noticed that the pictures in my last post weren’t quite the same quality as the rest of the images I’ve been posting. As far as I can tell, the culprit is my snazzy new Christmas camera. It’s cute and green and waterproof (!!!!) but it just doesn’t capture images, especially at close range, as crisply and beautifully as my DSLR.
I'm so excited for the rest of the plates to come!
- Sinful Colors Basecoat
- China Glaze Naughty and Nice ($5.99 @ Sally Beauty or $6.50 at Ulta. This is a fun color... it's a dark, vampy burgundy color. It applies with a jelly-like consistency, and takes 3 coats to build up to a suitable opacity. You can see that I had some trouble applying it neatly... the picture at the very top is overexposed in sunlight so you can get a better idea of how it actually applies. Although this color looks very dark in low-light situations, I don't think it's quite dark enough to appear black. I like it.)
