But I'm back bitches and I'm ready to slap some mama's to make up for lost time! Let's get crackin!
Ok, so I was really missing pretty much all of my nail art tools during my hiatus so I had to do something fun for my return. I went for my striping tape and then discovered another dilemna...what color do I use?? I haven't bought polish in a while (gasp) and I'm really feeling kind of blah about my massive collection. Wah wah wah, get over it woman!
Bottom line is I decided on black and white because I couldn't make up my sweet little mind....ladies and gentlemen, please feast your eyes on exhibit A...
I am quite happy with how this little peach turned out...I'm ready to slap somebody's daddy over this little number, I don't discriminate. I started off with no idea what I was doing. I painted my whole hand white, (Julie G. White Orchid to be exact) slapped some Seche Vite on and thought to myself...now what?
A little striping tape and a medium sized dotter later, this is what I came up with. Oh and the black polish I used was Layla Ceramic Effect Pure Black.
For those of you not sure how to work the whole striping tape thing, I have a tutorial on my YouTube page (YoungWildandPolished) and I also have a few other blog posts that go into detail. Basically you paint on your base color, add a quick dry topcoat, (I highly, HIGHLY suggest Seche Vite), wait about 10 minutes, add striping tape wherever you want, slap on a second color, immediately remove the striping tape and Voila!!
Once you're all finished up, all you have to do is topcoat and backhand the person closest to you....
(Please overlook the dry spots around a few of my fingers. It's not dry cuticles, it's still from the dreaded polish remover that didn't know how to play nice.)
I've missed you all, and I'm so happy to be back. I have lots of fun nail art posts coming up and a few makeup related ones also. It's a whole new world for me to jump into the world of makeup and swatching blush and lipstick, but I think it will be fun. If you guys decide you're not interested in the makeup stuff and want me to stick to nail art, that's fine also. I'm here to please, my wish is your command, basically what I'm trying to say is...I'm your bitch, whatever you want, you shall get!
I hope you guys enjoyed this! I feel like I've been away forever!
Happy Polishing Loves!!
