    I had been wanting to try my hands at a metallic foil manicure, so here's what I came up with:

    [​IMG]

    These are the products I used. L'Oreal polish, the color is "not a cloud in the sky", Ciate' silver foil sheets, Ciate' foil glue, and Poshe' topcoat.

    [​IMG]

    I found some assorted Ciate' kits at Marshall's, and they had one of the Very Coulorfoil kits marked down to $5 because it was damaged. Somebody had torn the box open and swiped the base color polish (which was just a basic grey cream color). But the vial of foil glue, foil sheet packet, and instructions were all there, and that's all I needed. It was a quick and easy manicure and I really like the random flecks of silver foil. You can cover the entire nail or just do flecks like I did. You can use one color, or mix them up. It's a fun kit to play with and I'm going to have fun experimenting with it.

    My personal trend right now is to put a confetti/glitter top coat on whatever nail color I am wearing. This week is hot pink :)

    I've always wanted to try gel polish. My nails have finally gotten strong enough to grow. I was so excited that they were able to shape them like when I used to have acrylic nails. They had my fave OPI color-Pompeii Purple in both gel and regular polish (which I got on my tootsies). I hope the gel lasts as long as they say it will.

    a woman's hands tell more about her and who she is far better than what she can verbalize. You get very beautiful hands. :)

    The Maybelline glitter color name is "Clearly Spotted"
    The Sally Hansen color name is "Water Color"

    I want to say I bought them both at CVS or Walgreens. Should be easy to find. I like the black and white glitter over any bright or pastel color, also gray. It looks really cool over gray.

    A good classic red to help cover up some henna stains (oops).

    I love both the color and the shape of these! I grew out my natural nails and did an almond shape until one broke off (of course) and really loved the shape. I kinda sorta well yes REALLY want to try super long talons at some point.

    Finally did my super long talons!! Considering I haven't worked with tips in probably 2 or 3 years, I'm pleased with how they turned out. I used gel (gel base, not gel shellac) and regular polish. Polish needs another coat, I just need to decide if I'm going to get fancy with sparkles and/or glitter. Any suggestions?

    They are about 3 cm from base to tip.
