Quilted Mani

Hi! I went to winter formal this weekend and  i had the perfect mani to do, but i got a lot busier than i expected and also I realized that I was out of nail polish remover :O so I had to go to the store and get more before I could do my nails. Turns out I waited till the last minute (like most things i do….i have an essay waiting on me right now, wonder when ill get to that lol) but I didn’t have enough time and waited until literally 10 minutes before my date got here to do my nails. Yikes. I ended up just painting them with Candies Mighty Mint like i had planned but i stamped them instead of doing what i wanted to do. and of course I didn’t take any pictures either, until they were chipping and gross 😦 but anyway, here they are:

thats Candies Mighty Mint and then bundle monster plate ummm…..it says “BM-211” and just the white Konad polish for the stamp. and then Seche Vite on top. so yeah. nothing too impressive. 

Today I was looking at my sad nails and the essay I have to write and i thought, hey i can totally do the quilting thing i wanted to do! So I did, while talking to people on facebook and browsing tumblr and not writing my essay, i slowly did my nails, and 2 hours later (oops) they were finally done. Here they are!

I realized when i was looking at the pictures that my cuticles look terrible :((( so i put julep cuticle oil on them and took more pictures…

lol freshly oily cuticles look weird. But whatever. I have always had terrible cuticles and nothing I have ever done has helped me 😦 does anyone have any tips??

 

Also, this mani was inspired by Cynthia from Of Life And Lacquer, (http://oflifeandlacquer.com/) I read her blog PRETTY MUCH every day, you should check her out 🙂 

 

This is the post that inspired me to do this mani:

  1. Look how cute you and your boyfriend(?) are!!! Your dress is fabulous–hope you had a great time. Ok, I really love the quilted white and minty green combo–it really does look quilted. For most of my life, I have had disgusting cuticles because I used to bite them. Any time I got bored or nervous, I would start gnawing on my cuticles which made them look disgusting. Imagine them being all ragged and bloody! EEK! I decided to get acrylic nails for about a year and this helped me stop biting both my nails and cuticles. Once I got over that, I started searching high and low for something that would keep my cuticles moisturized and therefore soft and not crusty–which would make me want to bite them again! I have two holy grail products for my cuticles: 1) CND Solar Oil. It’s the absolute most amazing cuticle oil I have ever used. 2) Barielle Intensive Hand Treatment creme. I put this on, and then put on some cotton moisturizing gloves and it makes a world of difference. Even if you don’t use these exact products, the idea is to moisturize, moisturize and moisturize! Also use a good cuticle remover like anything from Sally Hansen or Blue Cross.

    • Thank you so much 🙂 yes he is my awesome boyfriend of 1 year and 3 months 😀 we had a great time. Glad to know im not alone in the cuticle battle! Thanks i loved the colors too! I will definitely check out those products! thanks again!
