Hey! How's everyone doing?
So my Black Mesh came in the mail! I think it's the same as OPI - Black Shatter, but I don't have that one. I mean, they look identical so whatever. They're both black crackle polishes.
These pictures are Black Mesh over Revlon - Not So Blueberry, the polish in my last entry. I love this freaking look! NSB was the perfect color to put under a black crackle polish. It's so shimmery and bright, it just shines. Click the pictures to make them bigger!
Black Mesh is ridiculously easy to use. Just make sure you apply it over totally dry polish! I tried different techniques this time. I brushed it on diagonally on my middle finger, which I really like. I put a REALLY thin coat on my ring finger, so I got really long skinny cracks. My index finger is a thicker coat, so the black sections are more chunky. You have to put top coat on about 3 minutes after you put the crackle to seal it and give your polish some shine. Easy peasy. As you can see, I do have a little bit of tip wear. This is after three days though, so I'm okay with it.
Anyway, I stopped into Sally Beauty yesterday and they had just put out their China Glaze Crackle Polish display. I snapped up a bottle of Fault Line, the metallic purple, and I'll probably do a giveaway here on my blog when I get some more followers! So if you would be interested in that, let me know! I didn't even swatch it- it's brand spanking new.
So, not only am I a teaching assistant and a nail blogger, but I am also the proud owner of an Etsy shop! I just want to share it here because I posted a crap-ton of stuff yesterday, and I figured my readers might like to take a look. Not trying to push the shop, just sharing! Here are some earrings I just made and posted. I love them! I want to keep them! But I already have a similar pair so they're up for grabs. There are also matching rings for a lot of the earrings. So check that out here:
Thanks for reading! I hope you're having a great week! I get to see my friend Justine today for HH, even though neither of us drink- she's 9 months pregnant!!!
