Bklyn Queens NOTD

5 years ago

These were my nails a few weeks ago. I know some may have noticed I have been gone for about a month. I have been in San Diego and won`t be back home for another week. However this week is pretty uneventful so I can start posting and possibly try catching up. I have a lot of posts to do. The one thing I didn`t neglect while here was capturing everything I saw or did. On to my nails. Note these are freshly painted so I hadn`t applied lotion yet. I promise I normally do!

I usually don`t do bright reds as I think they can look a bit exaggerated against my skintone. However I fell in love with this shade (Essie`s Size Matter`s) as soon as I saw it. Because it was still a color I wasn`t used to wearing (I`ve only done bright reds on my toes. For some odd reason I can tolerate it there) I wanted to break it up by pairing it with another color. Whether it was via a design or an accent nail. I chose an accent nail with a design in the same red shade.

I 1st coated all of my nails with Seche Vite`s base coat. I had picked it up a few days prior. I was told adding a base coat helps polish last longer. I did 2 coats of Size Matters to get full coverage, on all my nails except the ring finger. For my ring finger I used my all time favorite nude Essie`s Sand Tropez. I used 2 coats as well. I left these for last since the design I wanted called for a wet base. While the polish was still wet, I added 2 dots of Size Matters, 1 on top of another with very little space in between. Then I went and added 1 dot of Sand Tropez in the very middle of each dot. I then used a toothpick and swirled then pulled the toothpick through each dot. The effects are never the same but still turn out pretty eye catching. I think they sort of resemble broken hearts. I finished my looked with Out the Doors top coat. My nails only lasted 1 day before a chip was visible.

I did however find a really great top coat which I will post about soon. I have a few hauls to do. Also for those who I`m sure are inquiring...Yes! I missed you all! You don`t have to say it. I know you missed me too! ; )
