First stop was practice time on my nail wheel. For that I used OPI Black Onyx, WetnWild The Wonder Yellows, Le Metier de Beaute Penny Lane and Le Metier de Beaute Wild Ginger – black, a golden yellow, two shades of orange. Then I went to work and couldn’t believe what a ghastly job I was doing. Maybe that’s okay since Halloween and ghastly go together.
I decided to try a marble attempt because I’d seen a nail blogger do a gorgeous manicure. It looked and sounded so easy.
I started with the OPI Black Onyx base with just one thick coat. (I should have stopped there). I let that dry and then dotted on WetnWild The Wonder Yellows dabbing it on with the cosmetic sponge. Next I used Le Metier de Beauty Wild Ginger in the same way. Should have worked right? This is what I got:
Well that certainly wasn’t working and I was running out of time. So onto the nail decals which I’d bought as an emergency backup.
The finished product! I had so much trouble with the one decal that I didn’t go farther.
The only good that came out of this is that I learned that no one who is a nail blogger needs to fear competition from me. While I have (what I consider) great taste in nail colors and a large collection, the best I can do is paint my nails a single color.
Hopefully my fellow Makeup Wars team members will be an inspiration where I failed. Please use their logos to go visit them all. Thanks for staying and not throwing up!! Happy Halloween — Marcia
