Welcome to day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas! Today's theme is candy canes. This was the one day I was least looking forward to. But then I remembered my magnetic polishes. I needed something easy since I still am having tooth problems and am seeing the dental surgeon in the morning so this was perfect. By the way - see that wonky middle nail? I got a crack in my nail and tried to patch it. It kept it from breaking but makes it look a little....well...wonky. Anyway...here's how I did it.
- Base Coat
- 1 coat China Glaze Magnetix Positively In Love. I love this particular magnetic polish because it was the easiest magnetic polish I have ever used. The stripes are strong and I only had to redo 1 nail because...well I don't know if I waited to long to put on the magnet or if I didn't get it close enough.
- Painted additional stripes with a small nail brush and Sephora by OPI Blasted Opalescent. This is a shatter polish and really wanted it to shatter the lines, but I think with the thin lines it just wasn't able to do its thing. You can kind of see a little shatter on that middle pinky stripe. Oh well, best laid plans and all that.
- Top coat (of course). This actually was very textured so I had to add 2 coats of top coat to give it that smooth candy finish. It actually could have probably used another coat, but you know how my patience is for that kind of thing. Want to see what it looked like without the second coat. Your wish is my command (tee hee)
