Holiday Mani with a Lesson Learned!


Guess what!? It's December! And you know what that means.....Holiday manis! Woot woot! So I thought I would do a nice quick and easy one! Simple, easy peasy! :)

I really liked how this turned out. I used Finger Paints Sexy Sundress and the base and added Salon Perfect (got it from Walmart) Glam Glitter on three nails. Glam Glitter is a perfect holiday glitter! And then added an accent nail of Rainbow Polish See CP Ohhh. So much fun!

Finger Paints Sexy Sundress on it's own. Love this green! So bright and cherry!

So a little anecdote about this mani. I used the Elmer's Glue base because I was wearing glitter. I have had a bit of a problem in the past of the basecoat working like everyone says. So I made sure to really gloop it on and wait until it dried clear. 

Well, word to wise. Do not wear this type of basecoat when you work retail. Hahaha! Yep. I lost some "nails" into a customer's bag! Hahaha! As my customers left my register I looked down and was like crap! Two fell off! Shoot! I can't find them, they have to be in their bag! >_< But thankfully I was one of those bad cashiers and left a hard sensor tag on and my manager took their bag to find the sensor to take it off. She comes to me holding my "nails". She told me I was working so hard my nails were coming off! Hahahaha! :)

It's all good. At my break I took off the other nails so I wouldn't have that problem again! :)
