I suppose you might be sick of my on-going love for the China Glaze Electric Nights collection, but I have yet another nail art design for you. This one is based on Glow with the Flow which is now my favorite pink nail polish.
On a side note, my husband and I upgraded to a new computer for the first time in six years: an iMac. The computer I was using to do all my blogging was a 2009 cheap-o laptop (basically I walked into Best Buy looked around for a few minutes and said “that one” to the cheapest one on display, and that was it). It worked, barely, for blogging in WordPress, so right now I couldn’t be more ecstatic to be on a computer that wasn’t designed for basic internet browser six years ago.
While I’m really frustrated with re-learning an operating system, the speed at which WordPress works is mind bogglingly faster than on the old laptop. I’ll be able to get twice as much done in the same amount of time because the page loads are instantaneous and it won’t crash every fifth page reload. Same with the pictures since the native photo-editing app on the iMac has substantially better options compared to the horrid one in Microsoft, so I can save time from having to transfer to picmonkey and all that clunkiness (although it’s a brilliant photo editing app).
I wanted to add a simple pop of white to Glow With The Flow so that the pink base was still the star of the show. I forced myself to use one from my new Pueen set instead of using my Cici & Sisi Jumbo Set 1 as a crutch like I always do. I ♥ Cici & Sisi = best, most easily accessible nail art stamping investment you can make. It’s $30 for ten large, usable plates with a case on Amazon Prime. I found a cute little heart in my new Pueen set that I thought would be perfect to stand out over the pink. Plus, this little heart allowed me to practice my placement skills. Lining it up to be centered on each nail was a little tricky, but I think I did okay at it. The pictures are definitely forgiving. You can’t tell if it’s my fingers or the stamp that is wompy-cocked, right?
The best thing about a simpler mani, is that I can do all ten fingers exactly the same. I’m not some super hero nail art person — typically I do up my Cinderella hand with similar designs as my photographed hand, but it’s usually a lot simpler if it’s anything besides a simple stamping. (Sorry if I ruined my street cred.) I recently heard the perfect one liner describing the definition of your Cinderella hand: does all the work for none of the glory!
