I thought this was going to be an easy manicure.
I found myself thinking of a way to make it artistic but sheesh, why?
So I decided on Matte colors. Easy right? NOPE!
First off, I couldn't find my paper grommets so I tried yard sale tags which wouldn't conform to my nails.
I ended up at Walmart at 11:30 at night just to hunt down more paper grommets.
I get home and they're so sticky that they peel off my base color even after a 30 minute dry time!
So then I tried a fast dry top coat thinking it could peel the top coat if it wanted but would leave my base alone.
Then there goes my matte. Well hello! I have a matte top coat!
Wow. Just wow. So after what should have been a simple half moon manicure, here is my final result and the progress:
The products I used:
*2 coats Avon Red VelvetMatte
*1 coat Avon Black as Night Matte
*1 coat Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love Top Coat
