I meant to do this for Day 3, but then I face-palmed, ‘cause what other song-inspired mani could I have done. Silly, silly me.
Even after all those years I distinctly remember being buzzed from my first exposure to The Darkness, who had just played, when the Meat Loaf concert began with an epic chant ‘Iiiii want my money back…’ Apparently, when life is a lemon, one should demand one’s money back. As a fanfic aficionada I’m kind of fond of lemons, even if my life doesn’t roll that way. :-D
This is what I used:
- Seche Base
- LOOK by BIPA Nail Quickie 20 street
- acrylic paint
- essence better than gel nails top sealer
- essence matt top coat
street is a basic medium grey crème, ever so faintly blue-toned, in my opinion. Definitely a three-coater.
The first coat was horribly streaky, but it evened out well with the second. I’d call the formula average, no especially great things to say, but no real complaints, either. The brush is stubby and round, I’m not too hot on it.
This is street in two coats without top coat:
And here’s street in three coats with top coat:
Then I used a bunch of acrylic paints and a dinky brush to add the lemony design and sealed it with more top sealer. The other nails stayed plain and were mattified.
I had this pre-written, but completely forgot until 11:55 PM. D’oh. So we’re (where did that ‘we’ come from?) a bit late due to photo-uploading and such.
