Disgruntled Mani – Smoke & Ashes and Saint George
I hate when I do something I’m not happy with but it’s too late to redo it. I was so excited to get China Glaze’s Smoke and Ashes from the Hunger Games collection this week. But then I started thinking I had to get fancy with it, even though I had no clue what I should do. I was going to stamp, but what should I stamp? I waffled on ideas and finally I got impatient and painted a freehand stripe of A England’s Saint George.
Impatient probably describes the whole thing. I flooded the hell out of my cuticles and slapped paint everywhere. Cleanup took longer than the manicure.
But hell, it’s not like I’m not going to post a photo so here goes. Smoke and Ashes is notorious for photographing inaccurately. It’s actually filled with blue-green micro shimmer, which coordinates nicely with St George. But there’s no way to know that from the photo.
