Current pedi.

Right now, on my toes, is an experiment.  I'm really happy with the end result.  I had bought from Walgreens recently Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Sequin Scandal (I think that they had pulled it and stuck it in the back because it was a 2010 collection color).  I was thinking that it would be a really pretty dark olive-y brown with lots of gold shimmer...nope.  It was just a dark greenish black with virtually no pretty gold shimmers like in the bottle.  Bummed, I went to my collection and found Sinful Colors in All About You and put this on over top.  Yay!  This is what I though Sequin Scandal was going to look like.  All About You is a pretty gold and little touch of red microglitter in a clear base.  I was happy with how this looked now (but didn't take a picture)...but I wanted to play more.  I busted out my new Forever 21 (Love & Beauty) polish in Red.  I put a coat of this over top of Sequin Scandal and All About You and...o.m.g.  I think I just made a "dupe of Behind Closed Doors from WnW On the Prowl collection (which I really did try to get but never found the entire collection).

  • base coat of Pro-FX Fiberized Ridge filler
  • 2 coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Sequin Scandal (limited edition from 2010)
  • 1 coat of Sinful Colors in All About You (this is covered up since I kept playing)
  • 1 coat (2 on big toe) of Love & Beauty (from Forever 21) in Red (this is really a clear based red glitter that has fine glitter as well as the typical sized hexagonal glitter)
So it may take a while longer to do my layered version of Behind Closed Doors, but I am extremely pleased with the end result...and it also means that I get more me time when I can't be disturbed to go do something elsewhere.
