Anyhoo, one of the polishes I picked up was Over The Taupe. Below is two coats, without any top coat. Super shiny!
It's like painting melted chocolate on to your nails. I resisted the urge to lick it off though, probably wouldn't have been pleasant...
Also when I was in town, I went to pick up some reinforcement stickers for half moon manis, but Wilkinsons didn't have any and I couldn't be bothered looking elsewhere, so I bought some star stickers instead. I decided to use these in today's design.
I added a coat of Saffron 01 to my thumb and ring finger, and added one veeery thick coat of a 17 black polish (that has no name) over my star stickers. All sealed off with a coat of Seche Vite.
Since everything's so shiny it's a little hard to see, so here's a picture with the flash:
I'm quite pleased with my thumb, but the lines on my ring finger aren't as clean as I'd have liked. This was the third attempt on that finger though - I kept getting impatient and sticking my star sticker on before everything was dry and messing it up. Got there in the end though... I also think maybe it would have been nice if the colours on one of the accent nails was inverted, i.e. a black star on the brown+glitter background.
What do you think? Have you used any unusual shapes/items as templates in your nail art?
