Hey everyone! Here's a look at the mani I'm rockin at the moment! My little Evan loves a new show on Disney called The Octonauts - and I happened to see a little sea urchin on one of the episodes!
So here we go!!
I started with two coats of Barielle's A Bouquet for Ava for the ocean water, and Sinful Colors' Zeus for the urchins.
Zeus has an awesome formula and shine to it. As far as A Bouquet for Ava? I'm not crazy about it. The formula is seriously thick, refuses to go on evenly, and dries with a borderline neon finish. What's that about?!? OH! And if you happen to sneeze and get the tiniest bit on your skin ... congratulations! You're skin is now stained with a less than delightful teal hue. Grrrrrrreat. But I do adore the color!
I applied a quick coat of SV over Zeus, and cut small pointed strips of scotch tape for the urchin design. Once the tape was in place, I added a coat of A Bouquet for Ava, and removed the tape immediately. Then I finished it off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
I used my dotting tool with Kiss Black & Kiss White to create the bubble design by first placing black dots on my nails, and then placing smaller white dots over the black. I finished this off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
I hope you enjoy today's mani! Sorry my Barielle rant was a bit lengthy. I don't know if it's me, but I'm just not having a lot of luck with many of their polishes. Has anyone else had this problem?? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!!
