Morning! Or afternoon, depending on where you live ;) Hope every one had a great Easter, I know I did. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. So much so that I did practically nothing yesterday, I was pooped!! But I am back today to share my fun holo zebra mani.
I got Nfu-Oh NFU 61 from a blog sale a while back, and now that the sun has been peeking out, it was a good time to give it a try. In general you are supposed to use an aqua base for this polish, but I don't have one. So I did a little looking around for other options. A lot of people sandwiched 61 with Seche Vite. If you don't use an aqua base or some alternative, this polish is very streaky and leaves bald spots. Not pretty! I used my normal base coat of Rejuvacote, did a coat of 61, then a coat of Seche Vite, another coat of 61 and topped with Seche Vite. Get all that? Next time, I think I will start with Seche Vite as my base and go from there. See if it works easier. But hey, it turned out just fine with a little finesse. And because I can't leave a holo polish alone, I decided some stamping was in order :)
What do you think? I used Konad M57 and Konad Special Black for the zebra print and Bundle Monster BM317 and Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Flashy Fuchsia for the bow. Then topped with another coat of Seche Vite :)
Today is the 2nd day of Spring Break and I am already going nuts, I plan on sharing at least 1 more post this week, hopefully 2, but we will see how things go here.
