Double post today! I had to squeeze in a round of He Picks My Polish before the deadline! You may remember that for last time, my husband picked colors to match the superhero Jean Grey. This time he went for his other favorite female character: Dr. Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation. (Do you think he has a thing for redheads?)
The polishes Mr. ALIQUID chose were Zoya Robyn, Zoya Amy, Revlon Stiletto and Revlon Trendy. I actually ended up doing two manis, just like last time. I'll show you the second one first:
This mani was loosely inspired by this dots-and-stripes mani by My Adventures in Nail Art. My stripes aren't even, and I think I made the middle finger a little too busy, but overall I like the result. It kinda reminds me of a circuit board--very sci-fi!
OK, here's my slight "nail fail" first attempt. It started out fine at first, although the lines aren't as clean as I would like, but then I added matte topcoat too soon and it got all bubbly. Don't you hate it when the last thing you do to a mani kind of wrecks it?
Oh well. I like the pattern, so I'll probably attempt this mani again sometime.
