When Rescue Beauty Lounge had a 50% off sale, I couldn't believe it. Even at that price, they're not cheap, but I couldn't resist getting a few.
Rescue Beauty Lounge Black Russian is right up my alley - dark, molten blackish-red with a red shimmer. Vampy, yet glowy.
I'm getting better at free-handing straight or diagonal lines, but I'm not as good with the rounded ones. For a half-moon mani, I decided to use these tape reinforcers as a guide. They're just regular hole-reinforcers for punched paper, like you would put in a 3-ring binder. I've found them in the office supply section of Walmart or Target.
OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby has quickly become one of my fave polishes this year! That gold satin finish slays me.
I didn't want to put topcoat over that satin finish, so I had to figure out something else to do to finish this mani. I dug around in my studs and found these awesome gold teardrops.
With studs, placement can make all the difference. With this orientation, and overlapping over into the gold, it make me think of cat's claws. Rowr!

Do you like to play with studs? On your nails, I mean. With all studs, don't you find that placement makes all the difference?
