Today's design is dedicated to my hubby. When deciding which countries to do this week I knew I wanted to do one manicure based on the country his ancestor immigrated from. I also knew what design I was going to do, however I messed up on the execution. In order to save time in clean up my manicure is not a hundred percent what I wanted. But I'll let you be the judge!
Day Three - Germany
The first step is where things went wrong. I told myself to start with a white base, but I didn't want to do the clean up with black. Black can be a pain to clean off. So instead I chose poorly and went with one coat of Milani Black Swift.
Using my new love, the make-up sponge, I added my gradient using Rapid Cherry and Canary. Because I used the black I had to add many coats of the red and yellow, which actually created a lot of clean up. Head slap!
It is an interesting look but I won't do it again! I will definitely use a white base next time! At least you won't make the same mistake after reading this! Consider it your tip of the day!
