Simple Manicure

OPI Live and Let Die

November 16, 2012

On my nails at the moment, and I’m loving it even more than I thought I would: OPI’s Live and Let Die. It a nearly black, dark teal. Hard to describe. But I like it. :)

Before-you-take-of-the-polish Stamping

November 13, 2012

Sometimes right before I take off polish, I do a bit of stamping. I do this for the following reasons:

  1. It’s great for testing out different stamp designs. This design was hard to stamp because you had to get the placement just right.
  2. Testing out different top coats over stamping. Essie Good to Go and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri smear the stamping, while Seche Vite is perfect still.
  3. If I like how it turns out, I stretch the manicure a couple more days.

So, this is what I did tonight. Although, I’ll be taking it off soon…
