Home sick from work today, so I am doing some catching up while watching previous seasons of Supernatural on Netflix to prepare for the new season. Can't wait!
The prompt for today's post is Zombies. I was happy with this before I saw the pics. Now I realize I should have added some "blood". Oh well, there is always next year.
I started with a full mani under this. You will see it later today. Then I covered it with two coats of Ulta Set the Nude and one coat of Seche Vite. The great thing about this mani is that I did not have to worry about clean up! Now you can see how sloppy I really am when I do my nails. Then again, this polish is a huge cuticle flooder.
I waited until everything was dry to the touch, but still dentable and then pushed everything up from the base of my nail. The idea was that nails still grow when you are dead so a zombies nails would be nice and healthy at the ends, but what was growing in would be....well, icky.
The mani I had underneath I had underneath had a glitter gradient, which I hoped would show up since I had it on for two days before going over it with this, but when I pushed up the polish, everything went with it. Oh well, lesson learned. Next I sponged Mentality Rebel, a matte brown polish that I will be reviewing this weekend, on the tips and up onto my fingers. I thought it gave a perfect "dirt" finish. Like I said, I wish I would have added a bit of blood. Guess my zombie has not given in to the flesh eating thing yet (tee hee).
Bria allowed me to use her as a "victim". Once again, wish I had added blood. Oh well. Check out the rest of the zombies.
