The Nail Files: Simple but Sassy


Thank goodness it's Friday...what a long week it's been...


The Nail Files Link Up


China Glaze Immortal, OPI Don't You Lilac It?, and silver holographic striping tape from eBay.


Two coats of everything and then (carefully cut) striping tape with about four layers of topcoat because it really wants to peel off after a day or so.


Simple but sassy, if I do say so myself. And it took WAY less time than if I tried to do the stripes by hand. In fact, even with the insane layers of topcoat, this mani still took less than an hour. Yay!


And can we talk for a second about how pretty Immortal is? I'm OBSESSED with it at the moment. It's a fantastic grey and the tiny silver, blue and pink sparkles give it a lot of dimension. Well done, China Glaze!


Happy Friday, everyone!


Thanks to Tara and Vicki for hosting.
