This week I promise I'll be back to crafting. Yesterday we had a BBQ to celebrate the return of my husband and his unit from Iraq. (2 weeks ago) While we did have some nasty weather Friday night, Saturday was lovely. We had a great turn out of friends and family, loads of great food and tons of fun!
After we got home from the BBQ my mani started to peel. This is the second one to do this. Not sure if it's the base coat I am using or what, but the polish peeled off like the BOPO (Brush On Peel Off) polish I remember having as a little girl! So I removed all of the last mani and started fresh with something bright and Spring-like. I used 3 coats of China Glaze's Laser Lime from their Tronica line. I bought mine at Sally Beauty Supply's brick & mortar store. I checked their online shop, but didn't see it there.(which BTW Sally's has a buy 2 get 1 free sale on polish right now!!!) I topped it off with two coats of top coat. On my thumbs I did one coat of top coat, let that dry and them added a butterfly nail art sticker made by Kiss. (these are readily available at Wal-Mart, Kmart or other stores) After pressing the sticker down I brushed a second coat of top coat over the sticker to seal it in.
Starting tomorrow I will be getting down to serious business on the Barbie house. So be prepared for lots of crafty stuff! =D
