In an effort to keep showing you new and different manis (I'd totes do a glitter mosaic every day (and totes is ok to use, I checked :) )) I've been trolling through ebay and ordering things to stick on my nails. It's surprising the amount of stuff you can get sent to you for maybe $2, including shipping. I ordered striping tape, fimo sticks, fimo pre-sliced pieces, stickers, you name it. I've had these pretty fimo flowers sitting on my desk for a while now so I though I'd give them a try.
First up, two coats of Revlon Silver Coin. I couldn't find my Sally Hansen Celeb City but Silver Coin does well for a silver. It's not as sparkly as Celeb City but application was decent at two coats so..there you go. One thing I learnt with these is that you have to really let the base colour dry before you start on the fimo. Once it was dry, and using nail glue, I stuck each piece on to my nail. They actually held on quite well. I was able to do laundry without any falling off. They're a high maintenance look, that's for sure, but if you have a fancy occasion they'd be a nice accent. Also, I toootttally didn't stick anything together with the nail glue, that's just silly :D
The Verdict: There's something about fimo I love, so naturally I like this look. With a strong nail glue it's quite durable too. Yay flowers!
So cute! I have one bajillion Fimo sticks and shapes, I really ought to use them.ReplyDelete
