Swirled Blues

Hey everyone!

Ohhh man.. I have a solid.. 3-5 mani backlog going on, so shall we actually get some of these posted? I think so!

My nails right now have been chopped down, so looking at these longer gems makes my heart a little sad - but they will get back to the length/shape at some point.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love sandwich bag manis? They are always so easy to do, and the payoff is always awesome.

That is all for today! See you all again soon!

Whatever it is, it is amazing!

That is all for this evening -- see you next time!!

I picked up a bottle of Formula X Dainty yesterday and really wanted to put it to use - but didn't know what I wanted to do with it. Then I remembered these water decals from LadyQueen and it was settled.



I also decided to re-shape my nails back to be more almond-y.. such a good decision!

I actually had a very easy time using these decals. The last set I used from LadyQueen applied upside down/backwards (so inside of having the image show up top, it would show the white backing, which I had to quickly flip before they settled on to my nail.. I expected these to do the same) - but no, super easy to apply. Just make sure that you apply them exactly as you want them to sit. These gems are unforgiving! They settle in suuuper quick and you cannot manipula…
