Funky Grape Pop

Sorry that there has not been a good post in a while but I have been sick and we were already short 2 people at the daycare so I couldn't really call off. I wanted to share this mani with you because it made me feel a little better when I looked at it while I was sick :) I also wanted to share an experience that I had last night. One of the parents at the daycare asked if I could come to a little girls lock in at their church and do the girls nails. My roommate and I went to the lock in last night and it was so much fun, even though I was tired and still not feeling 100%. There were 20 something little girls and the two of us managed to do all of their nails in about 2 1/2 hours. We stamped all of their nails and even did some clean up on the ones that needed it. The girls were so excited and they loved having their nails done. They kept asking "all of this nail polish belongs to you?" lol I guess I do have quite a bit of nail polish.

This mani only lasted a day because it got covered in other nail polish from the lock in last night. Guess I will just have to do my nails again :)

Look at the pretty holographic glitter!

 This is a more accurate representation of Grape Pop:

Since I haven't posted in a while I gave you lots of pics this time! For this mani I started with 2 layers of Funky Fingers Sand and Stilettos then one coat of SV. I then used tape to tape off the tip and painted on one coat of China Glaze Grape Pop and put another coat of SV on top. The flower design is actually a sticker because I was too tired to stamp after all of that tape. In some of the pictures you can tell how much the Funky Fingers eats up the SV. It still looks lumpy after a coat of SV and then a coat of China Glaze. If I were to do this again I would reverse it and paint the Funky Fingers on last.
Hope you are having a good weekend and thanks for stopping by!
