I have to start by saying this is probably in my top five favorite manis - EVER! And this came entirely from my mind - no inspiration! I'm sure I'd seen similar manis before, but I did not find an image and go "ooo I want to do my own take on that look," as I usually do. While is JCPenney a few week's ago, I was waiting in line to check out while my boyfriend went into the tiny Sephora section. Next thing I know he has come back with polishes he wants me to buy! Luckily, he knows me and only picked ones that were on sale/clearance. Today's mani features one of those polishes, Formula X Memorable.
I started with a base of Memorable. This is a gorgeous blue-gray. In the bottle it appeared more gray, but on the nail it was definitely a blue-gray and sometimes looked teal in certain lights. Such a pretty color! Then, using the saran wrap method, I sponged on an unnamed white LA Girls polish. I then added a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.
After drying I used Sinful Colors Black on Black to stamp using Born Pretty Store plate QA88. I love this plate so much - it is so versatile! Once dry, I added another coat of Seche Vite and was good to go!
I seriously had so many compliments on this mani. Several girls in my office actually thought I was wearing nail stickers. I even had to explain the process to several people who couldn't believe I had done it myself. Even our waitress that night at Chuy's was impressed. I seriously love these nails. I love when I actually come up with something I love all on my own, and other people complimenting me certainly doesn't hurt either!
