So I'll start this one off with another regular nail polish.
This is 2 coats of OPI A-Taupe The Space Needle. I added OPI DS Desire accents. It's funny after wearing soak offs for so long I forgot how quickly nail polish chips.
I got some more pearl powder samples from my boyfriend's dad's autobody shop. I just scrubbed them over black polish. From L-R is Fine Blue, Violet, Red, Sunset Red, Copper, Green and Green-blue. With all the buzz over the Shellac Additives lately, I knew I had to try these out...
This is 2 coats of Shellac Silver Chrome with Copper pearl powder scrubbed in. I had a small haul of nail supplies from China and decided to try out a fimo slice. I cut it as thin as I possibly could, but the raised edge is really friggen annoying. I bought them to use on other people anyways, so no big deal.
Totally off topic but we went to FanExpo in Toronto last week. I was really excited to see one of my favorite actors there:
It's Norman Reedus who most people will recognize as Darrell from The Walking Dead. But to me he's one half of the Murphy brothers from The Boondock Saints :D.
And finally, my nail-biting mother ripped all her acrylic nails off and this time she wanted them shorter, more rounded and more natural looking.
I managed to correct a few things this time around so they came out thinner than last time but I need some work on my shaping skills. It will be interesting to see what other tips and tricks I can get from the course next month. I think once I'm certified that I will start out offering Shellac only at first since I'm already a pro at that. Nail extensions are pretty damn hard, it's definitely an art form.
