My first look!

Earlier this week I got my purchase from Born Pretty.  And a couple weeks back I received Pelican Gray from China Glazes Anchors Away Collection.  Then last night while at the bar with my dad I stopped at the neighboring Target to pick Nicole by OPI Pitch Black Glimmer.  As a result I had all the ingredients I needed to attempt one my favorite manicures as seen on the Canadian Nail Fanatic.

I started out with Pelican Gray. 

Then my Dad called me to go out to the bar.  In my rush to put on my clothes.  You might already be thinking what happened next.  Oh yes, my right hand suffered the brunt of the attack.

Look at the zipper marks on my index finger.

I said screw it and left.  While out I picked up Pitch Black Glimmer.  Got back from dinner and drink and fixed my right hand.  And attempted that super-awesome manicure.

Here's what happened on my left hand.

I placed my stamper image from BornPretty M71 first.  Then layered Pitch Black Shimmer over.  As you might be able to see I smudged the whole darn thing.  My ring finger is the only one that made it out half-way nice.

Pay no attention to the smudge on the thumb.

So then I decided to do the glitter under the stamp.  I attempted this method on my pinkie, ring and middle finger before I realized it wasn't stamping right.  So I top coated the glitter and stamped over it.  Finally I got decent nails out of my pointer and thumb.

All in all this was a fail.  I didn't have the heart to remove this.  I'm still wearing it 24 hours later.  It took me just to darn long to take it all off.  I don't want to even begin to think about removing the glitter.  Ugh.
