Wow, I've been gone for a while. I honestly didn't mean to stay gone this long, but life gets in the way. Anyways, I'm back and plan to make up for all of the time that I've missed!
Here is my first manicure, to get me back in the swing of things! It features some of my favorite brands, so let's get right into it!
Let's start with the basis of all manicures: nail upkeep. I've currently been using a four-way buffer* from Born Pretty Store to keep my nails in shape! I would consider this buffer one of the best I've ever used - it hasn't shown a lot of wear and I've been using it for a while now! You can find it on Born Pretty Store's website for $1.99 USD!
For my pinky I started off with two coats of Zoya Ryan*. Then, I added the cute seagulls from the QJ-197 water decal sheet*, which retails for $0.99 USD at Born Pretty Store! I'm a little upset that they didn't transfer like I'd hoped, as they don't have a white background. I was, however, very happy with the way the anchors transferred onto my thumb (not pictured).
For my ring and index fingers I started off with two coats of OPI Red My Fortune Cookie. Then, I transferred full nail water decals from the BP-W07 sheet*. For my middle finger I started off with two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme and I used a decal from the same sheet. The BP-W07 water decal sheet retails for $1.99 USD.
I really love the way this manicure turned out! It is definitely a great summer send off mani!
