It's Friday! First, welcome new readers! Only 10 away from an amazing giveaway! I've been gathering goodies for you...OPI, Orly, Sinful. Bouncing off the walls excited! PLEASE help me get there!!! Oh, and if you didn't notice, I've added a page where I will post other blogger's giveaways as I come across them. Go check them out!
So, here I have my Easter mani. You may have come across this before because it was featured on Nouveau Cheap's Easter round-up, which can be found here. From one G to another G - thank you!!! Sorry I didn't get "in-progress" pics on this mani. I was a little pressed for time (what else is new?).
I started with my base of SH Double Duty. Then I did two coats of OPI's Alpine Snow (despite the fact that she's such a bish to me - we have a very unhealthy love/hate relationship). I free-handed the peeps using ChG Sweet Hook and Sinful's Unicorn. I used a dotting tool to add the eyes using Orchid's Truffle Maker. I topped them all off with Spoiled's Shaken Snow Globe (darn those craptastic brushes!).
After submitting this to Nouveau Cheap, I decided I needed something different on my thumb. So I attempted an Easter basket. It didn't come out as I'd hoped, but then, these things rarely do. Oh, well. I started with ChG Cha Cha Cha for the grass. Then I added Orchid Truffle Maker for the basket. Using my beloved tape, I added CC Antiquated to attempt a woven look (fail!). Everything was topped with SV. In the end, I thought it was cute and enjoyed doing it. I am actually planning a different, more "classical" mani for Easter day. I'll post that on Monday.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone! And if you celebrate Easter...Happy Easter!
