Hobby Polish Blogger Challenge - 3D
Let's go back..back..back in time to last week, when I was supposed to do a 3-D mani instead of the neon one I did.
This is a polish that I've wanted to try for a long time, but just hadn't found a good price for a bottle of it. It's OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress. My fave OPI Red is SoHo Nice To Meet You (one of the few bottles I've almost finished!) and this is pretty close, though not a dupe for it.
For my 3-D effect, I decided to use tiny black studs on a rounded diagonal. I think the studs came from Born Pretty Store.
I love how this came out - a little pretty, and a little badass. These were not easy for me to work with! A lot of them were stuck together, and, even after getting them apart, they wanted to stick to the dotting tool I used to apply them, and not my nail.
I'd do it again, though. It's probably easier to just use polish and a dotting tool, but these are pretty cool looking. Would you go through the trouble of positioning studs, or just use a dotting tool and black polish?
