TGIF!! Are you glad or what!!
My goodness, this challenge is kicking my ass!! I've been trying to use my new Tranzition polishes and come up with some different designs, something else besides Funky French and dots, and I am just failing miserably!! I really wish I had a steady hand and some artistic blood in me because these manis so far don't look anything close to good =(( well at least the colors are pretty!
Anyways.. Day 4 of the New 31DC calls for pink. I had just a perfect polish for this occasion: China Glaze "Split Perso-Nail-Ity"!
First I started with one coat of Split Perso-Nail-Ity, a beautiful slightly dusty pink. Perfect formula, zero cleanup!
Then I added a layer of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat to all but one of my nails. Word of caution: in order to achieve full transformation, the layer of topcoat must be thick!! Otherwise you'll get a streaky mess and different degrees of pink. The thicker the layer, the darker the polish will become, which is a magenta pink in this instance.
Then I decided to be artsy-fartsy and draw some lines over my nails. I used Split Perso-Nail-Ity again on the darker nails, and just topcoat on my accent nail. I really really wish I was better at this so my lines wouldn't be so thick! I used a thin brush so I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong here =(
I decided to add some pink iridescent glequins that I purchased at Born Pretty Store in order to soften up the look and to take away from my kindergarten-like lines.
Well I hope you can forgive me my amateur-ish art skills and look past them to see how cool this polish is!
Split Perso-Nail-Ity is part of China Glaze Tranzitions collections and can be currently purchased wherever China Glaze is sold.
I personally have mixed feelings about these polishes. They are fabulous when it comes to color (either with or without topcoat), they are one coaters and have awesome formula, which also makes them perfect for stamping. It's the actual transition part that I have a problem with. I had to really make sure that my layer of topcoat was uniform throughout all my nails (as you can see, my pinky has a little thinner layer hence a little lighter pink). Also, I think I have to work on my freehand skills and steadiness of my hand. Once I master those I will definitely revisit more complex nail art designs. Until then - Funky French and dots!!!
What do you all think of this polish, and the whole concept?
Thanks so much for reading!!!
