I get by with a little help from my friend(s)-Brooke!

Sing along with me, Ladies!

What would you think if I sang out of tune,

Would you stand up and walk out on me ?

Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song

And I'll try not to sing out of key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends

Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends

Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

I love this movie! If you haven't seen it yet- you NEED to! I love the Beatles and this movie just makes the music sooo much better!

Brooke, you really helped me out!

But first...
Let's start with the mani that I did last week: Finger Paints Artist's Sapphire. Mary @ Body and Soul did a post on this np brand and I agree with her, I love it!
This is 2 coats with Nailtek II basecoat and Seche topcoat. It went on smoooooooth! All pics are artificial light.

Here it is with Nfu-Oh #65 and Konad plate m36. From reading Brooke's post I really learned a lot. I learned to not SCRAPE too hard. This was something that I always did. All you need is a light scrape. I also learned to work quickly, especially when using the holo Nfu-Oh's. This helped prevent my polish applying stringy. I only got 2 that were a little stringy on the ends, which is a great improvement. I also learned that I need to buy some Konad special polishes! I might be able to get away with it for a little while longer :)

These pics are taken pre-cleanup. I had to apply another coat of Artist's Sapphire b/c it was chipping (I had worn it for about 5 days).

What do y'all think? Does it look better?


Mary said...

Nessa, your stamping looks great! And the FP polish looks great too. The brushes are a bit narrower than other brands but the application is still good.

Velvet said...

It looks great!! I love the blue color and the white flower together!!

Mary, thanks! I love the brand and the brush! I might have to go get more and it won't break the bank!

Velvet, thanks so much! I am finally pleased with the outcome!

Sorry I am soooo late on commenting!!! I have lots of catching up to do today!

I'm so glad the tips helped! With a little practice, you will only get better and better! I think it looks like you did a wonderful job :)

It's OK, Brooke. You do have a lot of catching up to do ;) Thanks again for the wonderful post, you really helped me out a lot!
I haven't read through your other one yet, but I'm sure there's even more good info that I will learn in there!
