A couple weeks ago I had a 15% off coupon for Sallys that doubled to 30% off on the 22nd only, so you can bet I was at a Sallys store bright and early on Saturday, the 22nd. I did as I always do and went straight to the red tagged Gelish bin and, much to my HUGE surprise, The Snow Escape collection was sitting there, discounted down to $5.95 a bottle!!
We went home and decided that we definitely had to use two of the colors from that collection on my financée's next mani.
I used I Heart My Instructor, Let's Hit The Bunny Slopes, and 'Lily' by ENP Gella. I hand-painted the dandelion-type flower with some yellow Folk Art acrylic paint and covered that nail with two coats of Gelish Matte Top It Off. On the index finger I used my new Nail Vinyls. I stuck the vinyls on, flash cured 1 coat of I Heart My Instructor, then took the vinyls off. I did it this way to try to avoid having fully cured polish peel up when removing the vinyls, like I've experienced with nail tape. It worked well! I used a small brush to paint on an extra coat of Instructor - super easy since the "guidelines" were essentially already there. :) That nail got Matte TIO , too. Everything else was hand painted - still practicing hand-painting straight lines!
