Dog Themed Mani

Over the weekend my husband and I headed down to York Pa to go to the small paws expo. It's for dogs under 25 pounds, and it all benefits rescue groups. We had a great time, and in honor of the occasion I broke out some nail decals.

I usually don't like the look of nail art on me, but I was so happy with how my nails turned out, and we had a great time! These decals are by fing'rs, and the polish is Opi Alpine Snow.

Notd updates...

It's been almost a month since I last posted and I have some pics for you. First up is a nail polish I picked up in the halloween section of walmart, it's a small green bottle with no name. This is two coats with my usual base coat of salon sciences instant artificials, and seche vite top coat.
On a recent trip to rite aid, i was shocked to find that they finally got in some new nail polish displays! There was a sinful display, it looked like a summer display (in october!), and I picked up bianca, I love pinks, and this fit the bill:

I got this idea from one of the blogs that I follow, cynful nails. She does an amazingly gorgeous gel glitter gradient mani. This is my attempt at it:

I used one coat of salon sciences instant artificials. Then 3 coats of RBL locavore, with each coat starting closer to the tip than the last. I then used another coat of salon sciences instant artificials, in an attempt to get the gel look. I topped it all off with a coat of seche vite. The pictures did not turn out that great, but irl it doesn't look too bad for my first try!
