Day 8 - Metallic

This one made me a little sad, because I wanted something epic, but got decent instead. No biggie, it was worth the try!!!

Let me first show you my final product:




Yeahhh! This is China Glaze Agro. The bottle makes it seem a LOT more metallic than it really is, but it's still such a pretty color! I'm bummed with how these pictures turned out. I really need to check out some better lighting!

Anyhoo, the following is what I started this day's challenge with.

And I know what you're thinking....

Does she really have tin foil on her fingers???
Yes. Yes I do.
Let me tell you about tin foil... The idea is nice, but it doesn't stretch. Of course it doesn't! So unless you have perfect nails, you will have wrinkles. I mean, foil wasn't made for beauty, right? Unless you count putting highlights in you hair... From afar (like, extending your arm all the way and looking), the mani looks pretty sweet! But once it's up closer, the wrinkles are crazy prominent! Also it doesn't stay on and last very long.
So we can ignore the wrinkles, and look at Entei instead. Even though he is half cut off anyway. Don't worry, he will just run away and come back when you least expect it. He does that.
I decided to hold a Pokémon instead of a cardboard box of foil. =D

Don't forget to check out Lost in Lacquer and Lacquer Lily! These two ladies are also taking this challenge and have some fantastic work!

See you next time!
