A Failed Vintage Manicure
I tried doing a 40's manicure with the moons at the cuticles and the edges also free of polish, like the picture above. I used French Manicure stickers instead of ring binders as I wanted a nice crisp edging......as you can see it didn't work out very well.
I started with 2 coats of Cult Nails Enticing for the base.
And chose China Glaze High Maintenance as the main color.
The trick is to be patient waiting for your base color to dry properly, instead of lashing on Seche Vite and waiting 5 minutes before taping. Then waiting AGAIN for your main color to dry before peeling off the stickers.
I am not a patient person.
So I ended up painting over the edges and finishing with a thick coat of Seche QD.
Anyone else tried sand failed at the 40s manicure?
