So, my idea was to do a futuristic twist on a traditional french manicure. Here's how it turned out:
I used Foil Me Once for the pink base and Worth The Risque for the 'white' tips. I think the metallic pink and holographic white/silver makes it suitably futuristic. Along with the chevron instead of the traditional curve.
Futuristic. Finished it off with a layer of topcoat. Fresh bottle! *swoons* It's the little things. lol
For the chevrons I remembered having these chevron-shaped guides.... though now I can't remember which packet of stuff they came in. *eep* Sorry.
They were a lot stickier than I expected and pulled up all of my base polish on my first finger! *dies* So I gave Foil Me Once overnight to dry and really de-stickied them the second time. So.... some of the lines aren't perfectly straight, but at least everything stayed put.
Nail Mail Time! Got my Julep box earlier than expected!
So I've got Karen, Faye and (just in time for July) Fireworks. Plus the body tonic.
Plus a pack of face blotting papers.
I... uhm... kind of sweat a lot. Like, a lot lot, so if I find that these work well, you can be sure they'll work for you. lol
I mentioned a while back that Yves Rocher discontinued my absolutely favorite perfume, Ming Shu. It was scented like night lilies. Very... watery and floral and... special. I really like it. They replaced it with Ming Shu: Fleur de l'Aube, which is... it's nice, and kind of similar, but almost too sweet. You don't get the sense of nighttime secrets with it.
It's nice, and wearable. It will serve (along with my Hello Kitty perfumes and what's left of my Betty Boop) to extend my waning bottle of proper Ming Shu. *sigh* At least I don't wear it enough for it to be a "signature scent". Nobody will notice but me. lol
Since it's the end of the month (and my stuff credited), I guess I can do a quick rundown of my tablet progress.

Almost halfway there! ....*sigh* Not bad for a little over a month's worth of trying, I guess. Tomorrow starts July so you can look forward to four days of red, white & blue manis. lol I think this year is going to be more glitter-heavy than last year. Then it's back to the untrieds. Nine of those, so I'm still under double-digits! Hope everyone's had a great weekend. :D
