Just a quick post to show you my Christmas (failed) mani.
I started with two coats of a shimmery white polish. After that I stamped the stripes with Catrice Looking Sunkissed from the Bohemia LE. I just wanted a simple candy cane look but I failed miserably. The red polish was probably too watery and it stained all around the stamped stripes. I decided to add some sponged tips so that the stain looked like it was meant to be there. I didn’t like the result though and removed everything the day after Christmas!
Hope you Christmas manis were successful! And what do you plan for New Tear’s Eve?
Ciao a tutte!
Oggi vi faccio velocemente vedere la mia manicure di Natale, che è stata un fallimento.
Ho cominciato con 2 mani di uno smalto bianco shimmer, dopodichè ci ho stampato sopra le linee con il Catrice Looking Sunkissed della Bohemia. Volevo che sembrassero delle Candy Cane (bastoncini di zucchero) ma non è stato così. Il Catrice forse era un po’ troppo acquoso perchè il rosso ha macchiato lo smalto sotto anche tra le righe vere e proprie. A quel punto ho deciso di mettere il rosso anche sulle punte con una spugnetta in modo che il look un po’ macchiato sembrasse voluto. Niente da fare, non mi è piaciuto e ho tolto tutto a S. Stefano.
Spero che le vs manicure di Natale siano state dei successi e magari avete voglia di raccontarmi cosa avete in mente per Capodanno!
