Happy weekend! It seems the baby gave me a cold, and I'm exhausted. It's taken me hours to do this manicure and put together this post. It was worth it though!
In my last post, I asked for suggestions of what I should do next, and my friend, Jessica, suggested Breast Cancer Awareness nails. (Check out her Making Strides team page below!) I've also been dying to do some Halloween nails so I mixed the two together, and I'm pretty happy with the results!
On my left hand, I did pink to black gradients using Essie Baby's Breath as a base and used Orly's It's Not Me, It's you, China Glaze Purple Panic (at least that's what the bottle says. It looks pink to me), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out with a topcoat of OPI I Lily Love You on my pinky. On my ring finger, I used Black Out and Purple Panic for the ribbon. That ribbon was probably the most stressful part of the whole thing! I hate free-handing!
I used Polished Vino Nail Art Decals and Stencils for the hearts on my thumb and pointer. I did a gradient over black for the stenciled hearts, but if I could do it over, I'd do it more pink because you can't really see them very well near the end of the nail. I just got these decals and stencils in the mail, and they were super easy and fun to use! I also used them on my right hand, and I can't wait to try out more! Lastly, I added a couple of pink stars to my middle finger to represent my friendship with Jessica.
