Funky Fun

Before you get all bummed that this mani is going to revert back to my funky french stand by, read on.

I showed you last time my first try with studs.  I decided I really liked that and wanted to play with them some more.  Plus I ordered some other types that I can't wait to get!

Know what I'm excited about at this moment?????  New Lady Gaga music!  I am in love with her and her music.  I can't get enough of it.  She recently released her new single and video for the song called "Applause."  If you haven't heard it yet, go to YouTube immediately and hear it.  It's amazing.  Her new album doesn't come out until November and I am dying to get my hands on it.  I just ordered myself a copy of V Magazine that has her on the cover.  Yes I'm obsessed.  I've already marked my calendar for the preorder of the CD and the release date of the CD.  I'm just hoping that her new album isn't as religious as her last one.  I just couldn't get into that part of it.  The album still rocked, but I could have done without that.

Now I'm not going to get into some huge religious discussion.  I'm not opening up that can of worms as they say!  Let's just say that like all things I've talked about on here, I have very strong opinions.  I'm just smart enough to not bring up religion here.

Let's get down to business shall we?

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Bettina Peppermint, Contrary Polish Greenhouse and Orly Au Champagne. The studs from MoYou are in front.

I have to say as much as I'm loving these fun manis, I'm tired of the white base coat. I need to figure out a different color scheme to not start with white.  This is the second post in a row that started with this Orly.

I am in love with this white, but come on-two posts in a row??  Here are the starting shots.

It's been a few days since the sun has been out when I'm doing manis, so again, no sun shots.  Isn't this white gorgeous?  I do really love it.

Next I placed a bunch of tape.  This is a pain in the butt.  Here is that step.

You can see, I started painting these blocks and remembered to take pictures for you!!  Just think of how much time placing all this tape took.  A ton of time.  This is another three hour mani people.

So I colored in all these blocks I created.  Here is that step.

Obviously, this is precleanup.  Are you with me so far?  Next step is with the cleanup and tape removed.

Pretty cool right?  Next I added one stud per nail right in the middle. Finished up with top coat and here are the very cool results.

How freakin cool is this?  Even though it took forever, I love it!  I'm still not used to the feeling of a stud on my nails.  I kept thinking I had something stuck to them. They did stay on for the two days I wore this so that made me happy.

What do you think of this?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
