Sponged Gradient and Water Decal Roses
I did these nails last Wednesday. I thought I had plenty of time before my Zumba class. After all it is just sponging on some colour, apply decal, topcoat and off I go. Wrong..... I used acrylic paints for the gradient, easy, then a coat of BM on my pinky, easy, applied the decals, quite simple and easy. Then dabbed on the glitter on my pinky. While that was drying, I applied a coat of SV top coat to the rest of the manicure, checked my pinky and to my horror it was still wet! I had 10 minutes to get to my class, and at that moment my mobile goes, and it's my friend asking where I was (she is waiting to walk up with me) Arrgghh, I apply the SV to my pinky, start the clean up of the acrylic paint on my skin with a damp toothbrush, rushing like mad I manage, just about. Wipe my hands and to my horror I have smudged my pinky polish right off :( I don't think I applied SV to it. With no time to spare I apply a plaster and off I go, meeting my friend and getting to class with a couple of minutes to spare! Fixed the pinky on my return.
