Hi everyone! I have another challenge post today... This one I kind of like, but I'm kind of disappointed in. I really wanted to wear this one this weekend, but I smeared it. On the other hand, it really doesn't look that bad. I'll let you decide. :)
For my spiderweb mani I used the spun sugar technique. I really like this technique, but it takes soooooo loooooonnnnnnng to do. Both hands took me about 2 hours. Oy!
The above photos are what they look like with topcoat. I think it loses some of it's charm, really. So, I added a picture of my left hand (no cleanup, no topcoat), to show you what it looks like when you first do it. I really like it this way, but the brittle little strings break off and it doesn't last very long. Boo.
Then I decided everything looks better with glitter. Does it? Meh.
Now, on to the exciting stuff! It's my birthday tomorrow! YAY! I have to work though, so this will be my mani. Nothing special as it will get ruined shortly after I arrive. (boo) We won't really do anything special either, since I'm too old. lol I actually spent my birthday money already, so no presents... but we might go to dinner and have cake. We'll see! Now, I know I haven't done a giveaway in awhile. For that I am VERY sorry. I just haven't had any money to spare :( I think I'm going to do one now anyway! It isn't going to be huge (sorry *sniffsniff*), but I'm hoping you will love it anyway! I am going to allow the winner to pick six current collection polishes from China Glaze, Color Club, Orly, Or OPI (excluding holos) OR three from higher end brands (BL, DL, Zoya etc) All you have to do is be a follower (of some form, please let me know how) and comment below telling me the best birthday present you ever got. If you want me to email you as the winner, please include your email address. Otherwise I will announce the winner on the blog in a dedicated post and they will have 72 hours to respond. That's it! I will pick the winner on October 25 and either pick up, or order, your choices! Have fun and thanks for reading!
