Hey gals! So unfortunately I live in an area that will suffer the impacts of hurricane Irene later on today/tomorrow. I'm well prepared though! We have food, water, batteries, candles, matches, flashlights, first aid kits, and tons of books to read, because I'm a nerd and I need books haha...if evacuation is necessary, our site is literally 3 blocks away from our house. We're good to go.
BUT I realized that IF the power were to go out, I would NOT want to have to paint my nails by candlelight...that's not cool. And I had taken off my manicure to help my bf paint, so I had to paint my nails quick. I am in love with jelly sandwiches so I had to do another one...and with all this hurricane talk, I wanted something in a sky blue/aqua-ish color.
Not having any jellies in the color I had in mind, I had to use Essie Turquoise & Caicos. I used two different glitters, and I love how it turned out. I put on my base coat then did a layer of T&C, then a layer of OPI Crown Me Already!, then a coat of T&C, then a coat of Sally Hansen Extreme Wear Twinkle, Twinkle, then a final coat of T&C, and topped it off with Poshe. I like how it turned out, it kinda looks like a bunch of stuff trapped under water...kinda like how we're gonna be if this hurricane is as bad as News 12 makes it seem! Anyways, Enough of my rambling, here's my mani:
I really wanted to capture how nice it looks, it really looks great IRL. ALSO, did you guys notice that my nails are rounded? I broke two nails in the corners while painting with the bf, so instead of filing them down again, I just rounded them...not sure if I like it much... what do you guys think? ALSOOOO did you notice that I got my camera back?! SOOOO excited. Anyways, let me know what you guys think! Do you like the jelly sandwich thing? How's this combo? Do you hate it? Honestly, I love feedback, it helps me improve :)
Also, if anyone else is in an area getting affected by this hurricane, please stay safe! I hope everyone stays safe and that we all weather this and go back to our normal lives...get it, weather it? Haha, I'm so punny. Okay, I'll shut up now. Enjoy your day! Stay safe :) Thanks for reading! :D
