Good evening, Kitschies! It's Tuesday. Right? Yep. Still Tuesday. It feels like days ago since I got up this morning. It was a busy day at work. For me, anyway. I spent a good couple hours working on the EMR program and 5:00 came *just* before my head exploded, so that was good.
Now I'm home and I decided to do my nails (shocking, I know) and I've had nothing but failures. I've attempted a purple gradient and a red/glitter funky french and they were both big FAT fails. I finally decided to quit attempting to do something cool and went with a safe choice (Nubar Raspberry Truffle). And to make sure that the fails of the night don't get me down, I'm sharing two manis that are anything but fails.
To celebrate the New Year, we had our besties over for dinner and games. We used to do this a lot more often when we only had one kid a piece. We try to get together at least once a month and when we do, either Wendi does my makeup or I do her nails. This time I did her nails. She knew exactly what she wanted and, of course, I had the colors we needed to pull it off.
I started with the Color Club Electro Candy collection: Electro Candy (neon pink with turquoise flash), Pure Energy (neon blue with green flash), Ultra Violet (neon purple with blue flash), Volt of Light (highlighter yellow with blue-ish green flash), Tangerine Scream (neon orange with white flash), and What A Shock! (neon green with blue flash).
I paired the blue and purple together, pink and orange and yellow and green. I overlapped each of the colors so they looked like they blended in. Then I grabbed the black acrylic paint and striped each nail with zebra stripes. How awesomely 80s is this?!
I'm still learning to take good pics with the new camera. I've got taking my own pics down, but taking pics of somebody else's nails is a little more tricky. In other words: sorry that pic is so blurry.
We realized later that the blue and purple nails match her awesome purple and turquoise ring. WIN!! I was so inspired by the way Wendi's nails turned out, I did my own nails similar to this the following week.
Indoors in more direct, bright sunlight. The wear on this was much better than expected - especially since it's a neon. Today I had a little bit of tip wear, but I did have a chunk pop out of the middle of my index finger. I got tons of compliments about this mani. It's so fun, so bright and so NOT winter. LOL
I'm tired. My hands are cold. I have a headache. I think it's about time to call it a night. What do you think of my neon rainbow zebras? They're definitely a horse of a different color.
