Well so much for my Tuesday/Friday posting schedule. This wickedly bad virus attacked me. It pretended to be strep throat so I gulped down these horse pills for 5 days only to find it was a virus and not strep. Doctor says it could last another 3-5 days. I am definitely not up to the energy of doing my nails (or even caring for them much. If you could see them you would shake your head). But hopefully I am up to writing this post. I haven't had my head out of bed much here lately so let's see!
Ok on with the nail show! I will continue reviewing the Bow polishes. Let's start with Divide and Conquer.
The ring finger is done over white. This picture is about my 3rd try on it. While painting over the black while wet gives a nice effect, the white color "takes over" while wet and isn't as pretty. I found giving it about a minute or two to dry helps. The middle finger is with a clear base and I really like the marbling effect I got.
Now let's talk about my favorite color, Motivation!
Here on the thumb I did a white base and a horizontal method. Beautiful but not quite as dramatic as with the black.
As much as I don't want to, let's talk about Reboot.
I contacted Color4Nails to see if this is a formula issue or if I just got a bad batch. They sent an email to Dance Legend. It has been a week and I haven't heard anything. I will follow up with you.
To end on a good note, I wanted to share with you some dry marbling I did with these polishes. I was inspired again by @de_briz (when does inspired become stalking...?)
The first is done over Motivation over black. The second is done over Sirens over a clear base. The jury is still out on which one I like better.
Ok I have now used all my energy. But it felt good to do something productive. Hopefully I will have another post for you on Friday.
Until then, have fun and go do your nails!
