Hey there!! Sorry for the lack of posting, since my visa hasn't been approved yet, I'll try to post a little more until I start the moving process again. Unfortunately right now it's a bit awkward doing my nails, I have no nail table, no kitchen table, and a lot of my polishes and tools are en route to India. OK, enough excuses, on to the nails!!
I was stir-crazy the other day, so I decided to go out in public and walk around the outlet mall. On a whim, I stopped by the American Apparel outlet store, and to my astonishment, they had a ton of new colors!! I was shocked, I hadn't heard anything about them, and some of them are AMAZING!! (not that the others aren't cool, they're just something similar to what I have already, or something I probably wouldn't wear, i.e. pink) One of the colors I am seriously head over heels for (I bought 2), is Lopez Canyon, an awesome red-orange color that is insanely cool. In addition to its awesome hue, its also quite opaque, which, obviously, is a huge plus in my book. I knew that I wanted to use this color in a nail design, and I had a design I'd sort of been picturing in my head for a while, so i went for it. It didn't turn out like it did in my head, but I don't mind the outcome. I'm always a fan of patterns on the nail, sometimes even more than nail art I've done like the Smurfs, Finding Nemo, or stuff like that.
I used all American Apparel polishes for this design (other than my topcoat). For the base, I used American Apparel California Trooper, for the black, I used American Apparel Hassid, and for the red-orange accents, I used American Apparel Lopez Canyon. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.
And, because I find it amusing... cat bed. I am cat-sitting right now, and I found it amusing when I went in the bedroom the other day, and all three cats were on the bed–even the hermit cat that rarely comes out! Don't mind the unmade bed. lol
|Hunter is the grey one, Molly is the hermit-cat near the headboard, |
and Queequeg is the one standing up, I disturbed her slumber. :-D
