Fire Gradient Mani

Hey there readers! I've been meaning to post more often but obviously that's been working out well. Here is what my nails look like right now. I, like many others, have been obsessed with The Hunger Games recently and this was my attempt at 'fire nails' or I guess more accurately 'fire gradient nails'.

In those above I used 2 coats Sally Hansen diamond strength nail hardener as a base coat, one coat Sinful Colors Let's Meet, one coat Pure Ice Hot Tamale (thin at the top and getting thicker toward the nail base), two more layers of Let's Meet (one starting in the middle and getting thicker toward the tip of the nail and another just covering the tip) and one coat Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat.

And then below I added a layer of Wet N Wild FastDry Orange and another coat of Seche Vite.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

Tuxedo Mani and Another Award

I've got a Tuxedo Mani for you today. One really nice thing I noticed while I rocked this mani was that the black and white go with everything. I know it's not horrible if you wear neon pink nail polish with a red shirt but I just don't like to.

 In the pictures above I used 2 coats Sally Hansen diamond strength nail hardener as a base coat, and 2 coats China Glaze Snow. I let those dry completely and then eyeballed the tips with NYC Black Creme (you can also use tape) and then I dabbed a bit of black polish on a piece of paper and used the tip of a bobby pin to make the dots. And of course, one coat Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat on top of everything.
