Awwwww I was sad to take this one off...... I actually managed to do a decent job applying the 'mailing labels' guide diagonally across my nails =all 5 uniformly= then paint them... just a few teensie mistakes, but I knew I would be adding some embellishments. I got these cute little stars with a set of false toe-nails at an awesome store in Burlington Ontario, at X-mas ...sooo cute ( the one star on my pinky w/the black outline is from a different batch of stickers I am trying out )

'Last Mortgage Payment' is the polish I was wearing in my previous post, I cut mailing labels ( easy to remove & no gooey residue ) in 5 cm-ish strips and affixed diagonally to my nails, slapped on a coat of one of my newer Frankens 'Debt Free', waited for it to dry ( like 5 min) then affixed star stickers on the diagonal line added 2 coats of Billie 'Clear Polish', and Viola.
'Debt Free' is beautiful in the bottle and in the sunlight - but it is pretty dark. It is one of those polish's that you have to be very close to to see the shimmery effect. I created this with Sally Hansen 'Radish' & Sally Hansen ' Candy Lace'. I made a mistake by starting with a dark color and tried to lighten it. When I franken again ( which will be soon ) I will definitely start with a light base then add color/pigment to make it dark = way easier. I do not think I will be doing a full mani with 'Debt Free' as I will be tweaking it to be a little different then it is now. I also created another franken that looks very similar to this ( my next post ) so I will 'jazz' this up and then post.... eventually.
Anyhoo- here is a bunch of photos of 'Debt Free' & 'Last Mortgage Payment' I like the tone-on-tone look better than contrasting colors.
