Hey Polished People!
I’m glad to finally have the time to sit down and blog today! Gosh, I’ve been having these terrible stomach aches that are just completely debilitating and that last for like 8-9 hours, even when using Vicodin or Percocet so when I get one it completely makes me miss a day or two. Part of a day in pain and then finally sleeping (they come on between like 10pm and 7am so beside being in excruciating pain I can’t sleep) and then the next day is gone too because I’m recovering from the day before. Anyway, long story short I had a couple of episodes in the last several days so SURPRISE! nothing new here. 😦 The good news is that I saw a gastroenterologist yesterday and she thought it was my gallbladder. Well, as soon as I got home I researched gallbladder disease and EVERY SINGLE SYMPTOM described exactly what I have been experiencing. So… the good news is that I am on my way to having a diagnosis, the bad news is that a) I’ll have to have surgery and b) I have to wait for some more tests and given the severity and the frequency of my possible gall bladder attacks I’m worried it will burst. Anyway, I’m just gonna have to wait it out so cross your fingers for me!!! I’m scared of surgery but will be really happy when the pain is gone for good! 🙂 Now, enough of my stomach ache monologue- let’s get onto the nails!!! 😀
- Use your favorite base coat. I used Essie Feed Me.
- Apply 2 coats of ChG Westside Warrior.
- Allow to dry slightly, apply 1 coat of Seche Vite or your other favorite top coat. Use another coat or two of top coat if you want stamping insurance. Allow your nails to dry thoroughly so you don’t gouge or as I say, smoosh your nails.
- Use stamp BM 221 and Konad special black polish to stamp the design on each nail.
- Apply another coat of top coat and voila! Lovely tribal print nails 🙂
These nails were really easy except when it comes to getting that design right down the center of the nail. Getting it centered was hard!! You will see on some of the nails it gets pretty crooked but I still liked these. The good thing about using a dark green polish and black for stamping is that the contrast isn’t too high so even though the design is imperfect, it still looks presentable. These were fun to wear 🙂
Have you done tribal nails? How did you do yours? Also, totally apart from nails- have any of you had or know someone who has had their gallbladder out? As always, thanks for reading and Happy Polishing!!!
