Half-Assed Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blizzard Blue ManicureFriday, December 09, 2011
I apologize for how half-assed this manicure is. I wanted to try out a new polish that I got (for $1.99 yay!! It usually retails for like $4-something!) Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Blizzard Blue. It is a very sheer colour, and I decided that I was going to layer it over black and see how it looked.
Well! Let me tell you, it was GORGEOUS!! :D Blizzard Blue is a light frosty blue with a green colour-shift, and it looked amazing over the black! It was interesting; it almost removed all the blue and mainly showed the green. Stunning! (Edit: but seeing these pictures, it is mainly showing the blue! I guess it really depends on the light. Also stunning!)
Unfortunately I squashed a couple of my newly done nails (the thumb and the middle tip) so it looks a bit wonky. I also decided to 'spice it up' by adding some iridescent bar glitter (I freakin' love that stuff!) but I half-assed it by just blobbing it on with my finger and jamming my nail tips into the jar o' glitter. >.< I took pictures and then removed the manicure, and then I saw how the pictures came out.
UGH! For one I didn't cover ALL of the black with Blizzard Blue, the smush on the middle finger is so noticeable, and the bar glitter should have been applied with more *ahem* care. I also saw how much glitter was dangling off of the nail. Sigh. Please forgive me for this one, readers.
BONUS: A picture of me sporting some black nails! It is rare for me to do this, hehe.
Have a wonderful Friday, everyone! I promise to put more effort into my next mani. ^-^;
Until next time!
(P.S., Oh yeah, for the black I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out. This is a FANTASTIC black polish! Opaque in two coats, smooths on like butter and dries decently fast! Cant go wrong!)
