The Zebras Were Framed!

It was the one armed man! Hey there Bloggerettes! We Jacksonvillians are currently dealing with Tropical Storm Beryl and are not too happy! Dreary days and power outages, happy summer, right!? Anywho to brighten the day here's one of my most favorite manis to date! It was inspired by one of my favorite people, Betsey Johnson, and a pair of her fabulous earrings.
I started with a base of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu, 2 coats, on my index, ring, and pinkies. Followed by 1 coat of Glitter Gal Light as a Feather to give it a kick of holo. On my thumb and middle fingers I did a generous coat of Gelous then 3 coats of Milani Gold Jewel FX another coat of Gelous and finally a coat of Seche Vite. My glitta was smooth, lol! Next up I used my handy dandy Konad M57 plate, using the zebra design and Konad Black polish. For the rim I used LA Colors Art Deco in Intense Pink finishing up with a coat of Seche Vite. Phew, that was a lot of work!

2 coats of Tutu, 1 LaaF, and 3 Gold FX.

Stupid pinkie smudges! Somehow some little pink glitter got on my index finger too. I guess my mani just has some added character! I got so many compliments on this look it was crazy. I actually went to Sephora and wore a look using my new Sigma Paris palette and these nails and customers were asking me for help, etc instead of the employees. It definitely boosted my pride, which is always nice! What do you think? Here's a bonus "bleh rain, I'm so bored" picture, lol.

    1. I had the hardest time coming up with a title for this post and finally one of the lovely polish ladies in one of my groups gave me the inspiration. The rim/frame technique is pretty easy you just need some serious patience, lol.


I love and appreciate all feedback! All I ask is that there be no spamming on my posts. Thank you.
