Today I am loving my nails, they are so badass! They were deeply impractical, they made simple things difficult (like doing my hair or putting a coat on!) but personally I think they were worth it!
3D nail art isn't usually my cup of tea, because they are so impractical. I always look at them and think, 'how would you put your hand in your pocket?' I'm also a picker, so they wouldn't last long. But today was a great excuse to use some 3D decals I had sitting around.
So this is my Nails Inc Bling It On Leather manicure! I have already used the tan polish HERE, but up until now, I hadn't used the black polish or the little skulls. This was the perfect excuse! These gold skulls were actually from the tan set (the black set has silver skulls) but I only have gold studs, so I used gold skulls to match them.
I am loving this polish. I know opinion is a little divided on it, but personally I think it's fabulous. I love matte finishes, and texture. Plus, these make me feel like a rock star! And how cute is the little skull?!
These were also pretty easy to do. 2 coats of the leather polish, the skull was put on with nail glue, and so were the little round studs (from eBay, if you're interested). I didn't think clear polish would be enough to keep them on as I wasn't using top coat. My thumb is supposed to be randomly studded. I figured that if I tried to make a pattern, it would end up looking random anyway so why bother lol. They sat very smoothly on the nail. I probably could have worn these for a couple of days if I wanted. The skull did stick up, but that's what I expected. He was fairly easy to remove and clean with acetone, and can be reused.
I don't own a fan brush, so tomorrow will be a glitterbomb. Hmmm, do I have any of those?
