So this is about 14 and a half hours late, but I'm FINALLY getting my Bent nails up! I absolutely love what I came up with for today! I wore these through my few exams during the end of my Hell Week and I think they brought me luck ;)
So here's how I got to this design. I started thinking about bent things, which led me to broken, which then led me to fractures which led me to a fracture pattern! I was trying to come up with a cool colour combo, but after much deliberation decided to keep it simple in black and white.
I had just received the Cult Nails Anniversary Collection a few days before I did these so I used Cult Nails Tempest as my base. I needed two thin coats for full coverage, but I can see how you might be able to get away with one thicker coat. I just wanted to make a note on how wonderful Cult Nails customer service is. When I went to use Tempest there were a bunch of hairs sticking right out to the side. I trimmed them and went along my merry way, but sent an email just in case this had been a recurring problem with a batch of brushes or anything. Immediately they responded and said to just send my order number and they would send a new bottle of Tempest right away. I didn't ask for one, they just immediately offered. Amazing customer service! Has to be one of my favoutite indie companies ever.
After Tempest was dry I grabbed my It's So Easy Stripe Rite Black which I have been totally neglecting lately and started in on my fracture pattern!
After my pattern was complete I felt like it was missing a little something! So I grabbed Essie Good As Gold and filled in a few of my spaces to add a little extra dimension.
Wow that was a lot of pictures, but I adored these and wore them for 5 days! They only came off yesterday and my nails are still bare lol. I'm really enjoying my reading week and it's nice to spend some quality time with family and playing pointless games on my iPad and not feeling guilty lool.
Make sure you check out the rest of my challenge buddies, who actually managed to get today's prompt up on time! lol
