Hey There Polished People!
I don’t know about other cities around the US but here, when the sailors come in for “Fleet Week,” it’s a bit of a big deal. People go downtown to the big festival/carnival with the intention of meeting sailors. I mean, I get people are all excited about a “man in uniform” and all that but I find it a little creepy. I mean, these guys are just off their boats for a short time, and these ladies get dressed up in their Saturday Skankiest (not to be confused with their Sunday Best which they presumably wear to church the next day with the same hair and makeup from the night before) and flock downtown to see them. Do they think they’re really going to strike up this relationship on the ferris wheel like a scene out of a Nicholas Sparks book? I’m thinking no. Although- I suppose it could happen. Let me know if that’s worked out for you. 😉 Today I have some quick stamped nails that I did over my ChG Sexy In The City nails from my last post. As you may remember, I wasn’t in love with that polish, but it looked pretty good underneath a white stamp. However, my stamping was exceptionally sloppy so that’s unfortunate. Are you ready to see what I’m talking about?
Sexy Sailor In The City Nails
How To Get These Nails:
- Base coat.
- Paint your nails with 2-3 coats of ChG Sexy In The City.
- Apply a coat of Jessica Brilliance and allow your nails to dry thoroughly.
- When your nails are completely dry, use CH36 and Konad Special White polish to stamp on the anchor design. Please check your stamped image on the stamper better than I did and don’t smear and smudge your design like I did. I guess I was in a big fat hurry or something. 😦
- To avoid smearing these further, I applied a quick coat of OPI clear base and topcoat, followed by a coat of my fast drying Jessica Brilliance. I find that the quick dry polishes tend to smear designs more, so I went with a safer initial topcoat and finished it up with the fast dry.
Does your city have a Fleet Week or something similar? Have you ever went downtown and tried to catch yourself a sexy sailor? For some reason I’m thinking that Amanda from Mae’s Beauty is married to a sailor, but now that I’m saying that (and I’m dead tired as I write this) I’m wondering if I’m correct. She’ll have to set us straight in the comments below. 😉 As always, thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
