Wavy Gravy & Plug Yourself Sunday

 I have been meaning to try this look for a few months now. I started with the same base of Copper artificial nails then traced the black area with black striping polish, then filled it in with Wet n Wild Black Creme, then used Stripe Rite Copper Glitter Striping polish for the wavy area. VERY EASY.

This Stripe Rite Glitter is a Hooongry glitter - I went over the glitter area twice resulting in a textured surface which would require more TC then a regular manicure. I did not do a proper clean-up with acetone around my cuticles as i planned on adding another thicker coat of TC for the day.

OOPS! I got a late start today - as always, please leave your blog address in my comments so I can add you to my blog roll

Also; this is the 6th time in 2011 that I have spilled nail polish! This has rarely happened to me...............

Outline the wave & trace around nail. Fill in with WnW Black Creme, Add Glitter and a coat of Top Coat


Wow - these stripe polish's from the Bargain shop ( Canada ) are really good!

Ya know, I'm not going to lie... I feel like it has only been the past several months that I've been fighting with hungry glittery polishes. Its like they've all come out for and up and up war! I WILL defeat them! :-P

Very funky mani! I was sitting at a terribly long graduation ceremony and showed the pics to my family - they all enjoyed it. I JUST started my own blog with a law school classmate and appreciate that you support new bloggers!
