The "Blackberry Manicure".
I have seen this manicure on Megan Chair's Blog and for some reason I really liked the idea. The "Blackberry Manicure" is all of your nails done in a solid colour then your thumbs, only painted in really glittery polish so that they flash when you are texting. Today I decided to do one of my own. I used Sinful Colors Gogo Girl and Sally Hansen Strobe Light glitter polish.
Sinful Go Go Girl is a red jelly-creme in a beautiful clear true red. The formula is easy for me to control and I didn't have to do much clean up. This polish is lovely and shiny even without top coat, tho of course, I applied one. ;) My only gripe with this polish is that it is pretty sheer. I applied three coats and still have a bit of VNL in certain light and at certain angles. I should have done four coats but I do have other things that I am needing to be doing. lol I applied two coats to my thumbs then applied two coats of Strobe Light on top. I topped all nails with Seche.
I need to go shopping for reds that give me better coverage. I have my eyes on a few. Just need to get the extra money so I can go get them. :)
Goofy me, really. Wearing this manicure. I have never sent a text message in my life. lol (I think that half of my readers just fell out of their chairs in shock... heh heh.)
Thanks for popping in. Have a great day, stay cool and may your polish never bubble.
