|Added a Scorpion to my pinky|
I have been playing with brighter colors in order to discover what I like and don't like. Last night I decided to wear black. I got another new nail tech. She did a great job up until it came to polish application. The polish was a black with sime silver shimmer in it. It was made by Sephora. She struggled with the application. The polish would drag instead of spread. I actually felt bad for her, since it was my polish. The real problem is when she asked if iIwanted any nail art. I told her I wanted a silver lightning bolt on each big toe. She looked dumbfounded, so I Googled a picture of lightning bolt nails. She tried twice and kept screwing up. Finally I said forget about the lightning bolts and just do something you think would look nice. So the above picture is what i ended up with. She then bumped my big toe with her elbow and had to fix it after I pointed out it was messed up. It looks fine from a distance, but no macro shots for this pedicure. If I get her again, I won't get any nail art. The upside is my new set of mash plates came in. I will play with them during the next two weeks. I wont feel bad about taking this polish off. We are going to see Men in Black III in a bit; so I polished my nails black. I stamped a Scorpion on my left pinky and the astrological sign for Scorpio on my right pinky. I need to work on getting the image where I want it, but at least the whole image transferred. Glossy black has a whole different feel to it than matte from an image perspective. The glossy black projects a different attitude. The matte black makes me feel more blue collar. The glossy makes more of a statement. Polish is more than just paint, it can be transforming!
