Foxy Lady

What sort of Karma would make me sick right after I get my big haul of China Glaze. The kind of sick where polish fumes make me cough a lung up. :(

I managed to get this mani done before it hit me full force.
Pardon the thumb cuticle, it's had some rough treatment as of late

This is two coats of China Glaze Foxy which is a glorious fiery rust color that applied like a dream. From there I took one of my ebay 2 way polish pens in a copper glitter and painted a diagonal line across the nail. Then I took Stripe Rite in the liquid gold color (not glitter) and did a thin line under it. Finally I took Sinful Colors All About You and painted from the glitter stripe to the tip.
I like the effect it gave, subtle but eye caching. Here is a better look at that close up.
The copper glitter is a lot courser and allows more of Foxy to show from beneath while the finer gold of All About You is more dense and opaque while still having the flash from some red glitter.

I really like this diagonal mani, it's super simple. I may have to fall back on it some more once I'm healthy again.
Off to nurse myself with a cup of Lemon Zinger tea with a lime slice (since we're out of lemons). It's my ultimate feel good for what ails me tea, and bed. Hope you all have a wonderful day.
