My first half moon!


Good morning!  Its kinda stormy here in Seattle.....and I'm kinda liking it!  We have had such a dry summer and fall, its nice to get a break, and have some good ol' rain!

On to the mani!


Y'all know I suck at nail art.  Well here is another attempt.  I've tried the half moon mani before, but the perfectionist in me always found something wrong, and took it off right away.  I do actually really like this one.  Thought I wish the colors were reversed, lol!  And close up, I notice the imperfections


*sigh* My pictures suck!  The black was TOO shiny!


I found this looked better from afar....and it makes my nails look long!


As the base, I used 3 coats of Revlon Fire Fox.  I've wanted this color for a while.  It came out a few years ago, but has been discontinued.  I actually found it at Ross in a package of 3 or 4 other colors. I snatched it up right quick!  I felt it was almost blasphemy covering it up with Sinful Color's Black on Black.  It was just so retro on its own, love it!

  8. I think my problem with my pics is I need a light box so they all look the same. I hate having different lightings for my pics.
