Gah! I have been in a serious funk this last week and even my nails haven't been making me happy. I have really been wanting to showcase some nail art but I can't ever get my fingers to match what's in my mind and it's just so frustrating. S0 what do I do of all things...I put on a boring-shmoring military worthy mani...which is really quite lovely if you ask me.
This is a combination of Milani Thai Tea and Golden Rose #111 (pity they don't have real names) which is as you can see a honey of a holo. Both of them individually and together really reminds me of chai tea, one of my most favorite beverages that is a mixture of tea and spices. I like mine sweetened with honey with a splash of vanilla creamer and served either hot or on the rocks. I brew my own with Stash tea or mix Oregon brand with milk and call myself a happy camper.
The Milani is pretty sheer so it's three coats over my OPI Ridge Filler base. The first coat went on pretty streaky but it evened out with the other two and got sealed up with China Glaze Fast Forward top coat. Initially all five fingers were Milani but I had just gotten my order from Golden Rose and it seemed like...well, serendipity that #111 combined so well with it. So two coats of that went on top of everything else on my ring finger and thumb,and another coat of Flash Forward finished it up. Aaaand looking at it now I'm realizing that I did a pretty crap job at clean up and taking care of my cuticals so pardon my mess. Why don't I notice this as I'm taking the pictures rather than later??
I need to get out of this funk, I think a nice bright color is next, maybe that will be the kick I need to pull myself together. What do you do to cheer yourself up when you're down?
