French Bows - The Last Easter Mani...I Promise!

Good morning and welcome to 3 more new readers!  Only 7 to go, folks!!!

For my mani yesterday, I wanted something soft, subtle, and sweet for Easter Sunday.  So I started with my base of SH Double Duty.  Then, I did four coats of OPI's Barre My Soul, from their new NYC Ballet collection.  It's a sheer that I wanted pretty opaque, hence the ridiculous amount of coats.  I did this on all of my nails, except my ringer finger, which I was going to use as a subtle accent.  On that one, I did four coats of OPI's Care to Danse, a sheer purple that is also from the new collection.  Then I taped off my tips and added Orly's Faint of Heart.  To finish it all off, I topped with SV, and added nail art - a sweet, little, yellow bow, to my accent fingers.  And for some inexplicable reason, my cuticles decided to look ginormous when I took the pics.  @^%#$!* REALLY?!?  Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and here's to a (hopefully) painless week!
