Nubar Hot Pink & Whites

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    I just got around to doing my nails today, and thought I'd give you a peek.  It's Nubar Hot Pink with Konad M19 tips, and intended to be silly.

    You see, I live in the land of pink and whites (the acrylics made into a permanent French manicure).  Supposing someone has her nails done at all, I'd say it's an 80% chance that they're pink and whites.  Even my best friend has them.  That's a down side to living in a smaller community - when I lived in downtown Chicago, I'd see all kinds of fun manicures and high fashion galore (not that I participated in the fashion side of things!), but here, we're many years behind the trends.  So somewhat short pink & whites it is.

    I went through some pinks to find a low-maintenance neon, and ended up with Nubar Hot Pink, which took three coats.  I did some things until it was dry enough to stamp, then used Konad white with plate M19 to make French tips.  The white wasn't totally, stark-as-white-out opaque, so I went over it with two coats of Orly White Out, making the coats as thin as I possibly could.  I can't freehand a Funky French tip to save my life - heck, I can only freehand a regular French tip when my nails are their shortest, and imperfectly at that, so using the Konad stamp as a guide was necessary for me even though I went back over it with polish.  The polish isn't quite perfect - I took a call while I stamped and painted the tips.  I actually thought I did well until I saw the magnified pictures to show me where I blurred a line here and there - walking around, they look like I wanted them to.

    So this, Dear Reader, is my parody of pink and whites to make me giggle today.

    This one really does make me giggle - the pink is so pink, and the white is so white.  I do love a good parody...  I still have a few errands to run today, so this one will be seen, and I'm glad!

    That's the update for now, Dear Reader.  Until tomorrow, love and nail polish to you!
