Lightning Bolt

Inspired by the stormy weather yesterday, I decided to do a lightning bolt manicure. I used Sally Hansen Celeb City for the silver and Kelier blue for the crackle. The blue is a bit darker and more opaque than in the photo; I think my camera picked up on the shine of the silver and decided it didn't care about paying attention to anything else. Funnily enough, the sun is out today and I could've taken better pictures if I'd kept it on, but I put on my next set of Fashionista Nails since it was supposed to be rainy all day again. I should probably learn not to rely on the weathermen.

I really need to learn how to make my cuticle gaps all the same length. Good grief, that is sad. Anyway, that's all for me today...I'm not in a rambly mood today, for once. Until next time!

  3. Beautiful contrast. I don't think I've ever heard/read about Kelier.

  5. There are several reviews out there...you can get them at
    bornprettystore.com, and they're pretty cheap.

  6. I love this mani, the blue and silver go very well together. If you ever find the solution to cuticle gaps, let me know, I need help in that area :)

  7. Thanks! I think the solution is probably practice and cleanup...I've gotten better, but I still have a long way to go.

  8. Very pretty mani! I love how the blue looks on silver! As for the weather forecast, I never trust it, they seem to be wrong most of the time XD

  9. Thank you! I don't usually trust the weather forecast either...and when I do, it usually goes badly. ;)
