I'm about to put Rimmels Double Decker on my toes. It's a true red and the shade is exactly like a London double decker bus.

For Audrey by China Glaze. In honor of Audrey Hepburn. It's the exact color of Tiffany & Co.

LOVE that shade! One of my faves.

In general, I'm a huge fan of Rimmel cosmetics.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Mani in Plum Luck. Put it on Thursday night, and I've already got tip wear and a couple of chips. I should have gone with RBL Dead Calm.

Question

i've hit a snag. i tried to do some designs on my nails and it was a MESS!!

JahNaturalDezign and BrookieD what process are you using to get the polish on your nails? are you using toothpicks or a tiny nail brush or what? are you using the polish straight out of the bottle or pouring it onto something and dipping a tool into it to grab color?

i had to take my polish off and start over because it was not turning out right when i tried to do the dots. i tried to follow the instructions that were on the links i posted but it just got messy, even with a toothpick my blobs were so messy it looked ick!

please dumb it way down for me!!

**** edited to add i answered my own questions! i found a video where she pours a bit of polish on something. i used a tiy piece of foil and she dipped. i cut a toothpick so it was more blunted, worked like a charm! ****

That's exactly what I do. I tried using toothpicks bobby pins and anything that looked like it might work but the dotting tool still ended up working best for me.

I wanted to love the Shatter trend, but I just don't. It's not for me at all.
I can see why there are people not into it. It's not a clean, polished look.

It's a bit loud and choppy. But, that's what I like about it, along with the color pairing that can happen.

It's odd that I hate color on my face, but love it on my nails.

I finally acquired some shatter! Eeek, this is so cool! It's definitely not polished, but I am going to have fun with this.

I painted my fingers too...not anything remotely like what I have on my feet. I have some light pink/brown shimmery color from Finger Paints (Sally Beauty) that I bought a million years ago. I need to get some cute new colors.

Color I don't have an issue with, I guess it's just the choppiness I dislike. Boo, I thought I would like it. Usually I go for somewhat offbeat styles.
