TRI-Turquoise Talons

Hello, Fireflies!

You may remember these KISS Everlasting French press-on nails from last week:


I wore them for about 3 days, but in those days, I polished them, removed the polish (with non-acetone remover) and re-polished them many times.  I think Thursday is the last post with these.

After applying a base coat of Rica's Glossy Glam, I used Mineral Fusion Sapphire Dream and a piece of tape to paint a small section at the top of my nails, and a large section below.  I would have preferred to make the middle section a little bigger, but the curve of the French tip and my mistakes in application pretty much dictated the size of the nude section.

I used Mineral Fusion Sapphire Dream and a piece of tape to paint a small section at the top of my nails, and a large section below.

Then, I took these square orange-y-coral-y studs in large and small sizes and made them into diamonds (I am clever like that.)

I topcoated them in... except the pinky.  How did I not see that those weren't topcoated?


As an afterthought, I decided to paint the tips with Mineral Fusion Galaxy, a dark bluish-black base with turquoise and green glitter.


I would have been hard pressed to fit all this on my nubs, but it was fun to do on talons!


I really liked these Mineral Fusion polishes, too.  I bought them on BOGO special ($8 for both) at Ulta.com.  Bottle shot:  Mineral Fusion Sapphire Dream, and Galaxy.

I wouldn't have necessarily thought to put nude, turquoise, and coral together, but I love the combination, and these Mineral Fusion polishes!  Have you tried this brand?

    1. If only I could! I've tried everything. I can only get them to grow a little, then they break and/or peel. I've been the most successful with IBX, but I still can't get them to grow that long.

    1. I actually liked them alone, but they were too long to be practical for me. Probably why they started lifting after 3 days.
