Hey There Polished People!
When I was trying to figure out which tutorial to use for this post I was a little stumped. This sounds like my LAST challenge post, huh? Anyway, after looking at a bunch of tutorials, I asked my husband what type of nails I should do and for whatever reason he was like, “Do Flash nails, he’s a comic book character.” So I Googled Flash. He’s a comic book super hero that I guess moves really super lightning fast and wears a rather creepy red leotard with a yellow lightning bolt on the front. Then I just happened to see a TUTORIAL (ahhhh! angels singing) of a double lightning bolt on Nailside so yayyyyy! That’s what I did. Click here to see the Nailside tutorial that I followed. Ready to see my rendition?
- Follow this tutorial. :)
- I used OPI Big Apple Red for the main color, Essie Good As Gold for the lightning bolt and OPI Kennebunk-port for the bottom part. You can’t see the color difference as well as I’d hoped but oh well, I was still pretty happy.
How do you like these nails? Are you a fan or foe of tape manis? Some people have a really hard time with them, and I understand. Sometimes they just don’t want to cooperate. I think the key is using Seche Vite or some other high-quality quick dry topcoat and giving plenty of dry time.
If you know who Flash is, do you think these are ok? My husband told me that if I was going to do two-toned red nails with a gold (not yellow) lightning bolt I couldn’t call them “Flash” nails because the colors were wrong and it’s illegal. :p He can be such a turd, even though he was kidding. Anyway, let me know what you think and don’t forget to check out which tutorial Cynthia used today!! One more day to go in our challenge! As always, thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!
