In Honor Of

Hi everyone.  Today I thought I would create my white mani in honor of those affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy.  


I started off with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, a white creme with very subtle grey undertones.  I followed with one coat of SV.


I then added one coat of Black Cat Lacquer Let Them Eat Cake, a clear coat loaded with pale blue, pink, and green satin hexes, silver holographic mini hexes, and matte white micro hexes.  It went on very easily and the glitter applied smoothly.  I left out my ring finger for a slight accent.  I followed again with one coat of SV.


On my ring finger, I applied some gold gelquins in the form of a half moon halo, and applied one final coat of SV.


This is the first mani I have done since my decision to cut off all of my nails.  I guess it's going to take some getting used to.


I know I usually say that I enjoyed creating this, but it's really not very fitting to me right now.


But I do hope you enjoyed seeing my mani to honor all of those educators and children.



Colors: OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Black Cat Lacquer Let Them Eat Cake

  4. I've not been able to feel "right" since Friday. My babies start school in Sept and I don't know how I can act like I'm not scared (out of my mind) to send them :( This is beautiful and made me tear up seeing the soft colors, I could imagine the little ones playing...
