Today I actually have a Hunger Games THEME instead of just using the colors :-) I have a fishing manicure using District 4, the fishing district's polish: Hook and Line. I stamped fish scales on all but my ring finger, using Smoke and Ashes. I stamped a fish skeleton on my ring fingers. Then I used Northern Lights Holographic top coat to make the scales look shiny and approximate real scales. I really like the end result, but I have to say I am NOT a fan of Hook and Line. Did anyone else have a problem with this polish?? It was so streaky and thick! I feel like if I hadn't used my fast dry top coat it would have taken forever to dry and even then been one of those polishes that will dent even after it's dry. So yeah...not a fan. But I do like the end result here.
I pressed too hard and kind of messed up my middle finger...
I like my fishy. I was outside trying to get the last of the sun but it started to drizzle. The water drops fit though.
The fish on my right hand went kind of more diagonal. Lately my right hand has been looking better than my left, which is so weird!
Today I bought Electrify and Agro, so the only Capitol Color I'm missing is Mahogany Magic. I wasn't going to buy either Agro or Mahogany Magic, but at this point I feel compelled to finish the collection. I'm going to do a fire-y water marble to go see the movie with my Dad and sister on Saturday using Electrify, Smoke and Ashes, and Riveting; so I should have that tomorrow.
Colors Used: China Glaze Hook and Line & Smoke and Ashes
Technique: Stamping, Red Angel plates RA111 & RA 107
Purchased: Polishes at Sally, plates on Amazon
Verdict on the colors: Surprisingly the first China Glaze I'm not happy with! Hook and Line was streaky and thick. I do love Smoke and Ashes and it stamped well!
