Welcome to "P" day - lol, and of course I giggled because I'm a 10 year old boy in real life!! Do we seriously only have 10 more letters left for Kimber's Lacquer Korner's ABC Challenge? WOWza time flies by, hey? What's our next challenge? The New 31 Day Challenge?? All in favor?
Originally I was going to do a mani inspired by Heather over at Peace, Love and Polish, but it didn't turn out as I had hoped - I may or may not show it, we'll see.....Doesn't it suck when you have the best idea and it doesn't turn out!! GRRRR....
Anyhoodle, I went on a bit of a polish binge this weekend and bought 22 polishes - eeks!! I went to my local Shopper's Drug Mart and found NOPI's for $3.99, I grabbed a couple of those and a pink Essie for $1.99 - there was 3 - I bought them all...I don't feel guilty. Plus our Walmart's finally got Salon Perfect and Pure ICE, so I stocked up - I actually went to two Walmarts to find what I needed - which was a lot apparently.
I used new plates that I got a while ago and haven't really used until now. I bought the 2012 Cheeky Plates, you get 3 XL Jumbo plates for 14.99. I mistakenly thought Jumbo meant they would fit on my nails, but see that purple moon there, ya that wasn't my intention - the plates don't fit my extremely long nails(okay, they aren't extremely long, but they're long for me!!). I still love how they turned out so, yay for new nail stuff!!
Some of you asked which color I used for my O is for Oscar De La Renta Inspired mani and I don't want to disappoint so here's what I used: Two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow (thanks Gini) and then two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sunny Side. Sunny Side is super sheer and I couldn't get coverage even with multiple coats, so I used both.
Be sure to join me in checking out my fellow challengers and their "P" mani - giggle!!
