I fail........

Good evening!

So, yeah, I fail xD I haven't posted the last manis I've done, even though I like how they turned out. I just haven't been sleeping well, so I've been going to bed early the last few nights.

BUT!!! Better late than not at all! I'll start with yesterday's mani.

I was inspired by a skirt I wore yesterday. It's a geometric pattern done up in royal blue, white, grey, and medium blue. So, on three of my fingers, I did a base of OPI's French Quarter for Your Thoughts in 2 coats. On my accents fingers, ring and thumb, I did two coats of OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I topped both with Seche and let them dry.

Once dry, I pulled out my Scotch tape and taped off my nails. On four of my fingers, I used OPI's OPI...Eurso Euro. On my ring finger, I used French Quarter. I topped it with Seche again, then used OPI's Matte Topcoat.

The bottom pic shows the skirt that inspired me :)

Now, Wednesday's mani I really love. I've been seeing a jelly layering technique popping up on blogs and Face Book lately. Mostly, it's been done with dots, but I've also seen stamping (which is tomorrow's post....), so I thought I would give it a try.

I started with 2 coats of Zoya's Coraline as my base. Then I added a few dots in Zoya Pippa. I let that dry for a bit before adding another coat of Coraline and a few more Pippa dots, then topped with Seche.
