It's that time again!!! Time of the Happy Hour =) So pull your chair up, make yourself comfortable, and get ready to view a gorgeous polish while you're sipping on some tasty cocktail!!
Today's cocktail of the week is Zeus, inspired by Sinful Colors "Zeus"!
To achieve this look I painted all my nails first with Zeus. It's a gorgeous dusty blue with very strong purple undertones. It is filled with iridescent magenta shimmer. Two coats of perfect formula! I'm starting to change my mind about Sinful Colors. I've gotten almost all my bottles on sale for $0.99 and always figured that even if the formula is not all that great, no biggie since it's only 99 cents. As it turns out, this polish is not only of fabulous color, but also with really awesome formula!! For 99 cents you really cannot go any better!!
I used a saran wrap technique on my thumb and ring fingernails using China Glaze "Snow". To minimize the mess I just painted one single stripe on my nails and dabbed it around with small piece of plastic wrap. Much easier than making a dot on a board first, then dab it with saran wrap, and THEN put it on the nail. Less mess and it's faster to do it 'my' way!
Then I stamped both accent nails with Finger Paints "Black Expressionism" (my new perfect black for stamping, it's very very easy to clean up around cuticles unlike the wretched Konad!!) and plate RA-114. I'm expanding my horizons and starting to use full nail images!! What do you think???
Zeus is part of Sinful Colors Cast Away 2012 collection and can be still purchased at certain Walgreens stores for $1.99/bottle (or $0.99 during the sale times!!)
Now, as promised, the cocktail of the week, the Zeus!!
Combine the Campari, vodka and ice cubes in an old-fashioned glass and stir. Twist the lemon peel over the glass to release the oil, and drop it in.
Hmm... I'm not sure if I would go for this cocktail, I really don't like anything even remotely sour... If you ever try this, let me know how you liked it!!!
Thanks so much for joining me at the weekly Happy Hour!!!
