Sinful Shatter

While trying to fight the heat this week, Jen and I decided to paint our nails in the great outdoors. Seeing as how we are not the typical campers (instead of cooking over a fire we prefer to get fast food, watch dvd's, and have a fear of wildlife), nail painting seemed to fit right in with our night. I decided that I wanted to use Shatter since it's been quite some time since I've used it and I wanted to put bright colors underneath since I was in a summer-y mood. However, while trying to paint my nails, a raccoon decided to join our "party" and resulted in very rushed and disastrous results.

I attempted to give this design another try now that I am at home in the air conditioning. To start off, I painted each nail with a white base coat to help the colors pop. Next, I painted horizontal stripes of Sinful Colors Timbleberry, Dream On, Irish Green, and Fly Away. I topped it off with OPI Black Shatter and a layer of SV Top Coat.

So I liked Ericka's nails so much when she did them earlier this week that I decided to try it on my own. I'm definitely more partial to brighter colors and I love the way that mine turned out. I used China Glaze Pink Voltage (neon), Celtic Sun (neon), Sexy in the City, and Ultra Pro Lime Light on a white base and then used OPI Black Shatter on the top.
