Welcome to day 3 of the 31 day Nail Challenge, sponsored by Kimber's Lacquer Korner. And today's color is (drumroll, please)....
We cook. We clean. We leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Well, not exactly. But close.
In commemoration of all the kick-ass things women do, I give you....my SuperBroad Kapow!! Mani.
Let's start with the polishes:
Mellow Yellow (Sally Hansen), is a light/bright yellow creme. It was the least offensive yellow I could find. Correcting the thick viscosity of this never-before-used lacquer required lots of nail polish thinner. Repeatedly. Between coats, and sometimes, moving between nails. Very temperamental, this formula required 3 coats to even out the streaks.
If I'd not been participating in this here nail challenge, I'd have stopped right about here, because, even though I'm not a Yellow Kinda Gal, I can see where it would add a great pop to any black outfit (black is practically my uniform).
But since the challenge must go on....
I pulled out Special Black (Konad ), a glossy black creme, for the stamping. Next up....
The tools: BundleMonster image plates numbers BM-221 and BM-202
Miscellaneous other stuff on hand: Nail polish remover, nail polish thinner, a Konad stamper, Seche Rebuilt, and Seche Vite top coat.
The basic storyline: One coat Seche Rebuild, followed by three coats of Mellow Yellow. Wait till dry, and begin stamping, alternating image with each finger. Gently press the image "on" the nail (otherwise, it "bleeds" like it did for me below, when a top coat is applied).
The end result:
|see that bleeding of the black polish into the yellow?|
I dare say there was one nail I polished five, count 'em, five times. Oh, yeah...and then the stamping kept going wonky on me.
But you know what? I'm feeling like SuperBroad right now. Why? Because Day 3 and the obligatory Yellow Mani is done and over with! YAY!
