The Fanciest of All the Fancy Nails

Claire's is surprisingly reliable for interesting nail stuff.  At the same time as picking up the nail polish strips that were so shiny but so poorly wearing, I found the most amazing moustache stickers.  Seriously, it was not possible for me not to buy them.  As I'm not very good at painting yet, I figured they'd make the base for my most fancy nails yet.  And fancy has to be in the most British of accents - fannhhhncy.  In fact, please instruct your reading voice to be British for the rest of this post!

First up, I started with two coats of my favourite nude, Orly Pure Porcelain.  Next, I stuck on a sticker to each nail, mixing up the styles between fingers, for that personalised touch.  Next, large dotting tool in black polish, a smaller while dot and a tiny black dot, for the monocle. I then drew in tiny top hats and chains.  

While I love the look of this, I'm disappointed with the stickers.  They wouldn't sit flat and pulled up the polish underneath.  When I added a top coat, they went a bit wrinkly.  So drawn on moustaches for me next time!







The Verdict:  I know I have a winner on my hands (literally, hur hur) when it makes me do this face: :D So even though the stickers were a bit crap, I still love my fahhncy nails :D
