My Traveling Mani

This is going to be a quick post today my peeps. I'm still on vacation and would rather be enjoying the fam rather than at my computer typing posts!

The day before I was to leave for my trip, I had to decide on a simple but awesome mani for the road.  I had to pack and do all those things so I didn't have a lot of time to spend.  I came up with a simple design and I think it's very cool. A warning though, I have serious nubs because I broke a nail plus I was headed fishing which trust me has made my nails even worse! You shall see that soon enough.

I still think nubs can be gorgeous when done right!

Anywho, here is your silly bottle shot for today.

This is OPI Lincoln Park After Midnight, a little different than the After Dark version and Enchanted Polish I'm Kind of a Big Deal.  I'm typing that from memory so if that name is wrong, let me know and I'll correct it.

I started with a full mani with Big Deal.  This is a stunning pinky purple holo and I love it.  Here are the starting shots.

Next I added some tape.  Here is that step.

I then filled in the triangles with the OPI.  Here is that step.

I told you I was doing simple!  Next I removed the tape and did some clean up.  Here is that step.

Now in my mind, I was trying to make bows. My taping didn't quite make bows, so I took my biggest dotting tool, added a dot in the middle then a stud.  Here are the results.

Oh how I love this holo!  I also love how these two colors go together so well!  This was the mani that traveled with me the nine hours it took to drive to my parent's house.

I need to work on my taping to avoid these gaps in the future.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
