Hello, hello!  I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far.  I had a fantastic dinner with my friend, Shannon (who assures me she reads my blog, so Hi Shannon!) and am looking to make it an early night.  Sleep just would not come last night and I'm bushed!  This manicure was done from Nailside's Explosion tutorial.  This is my version with only one explosion layer :)


I started with two coats of Sinful Colors Folly (seriously, my favorite pink ever!) and then taped off the "explosion" with scotch tape.  I filled that area in with Checkin' into Rehab from Wet 'n' Wild's new Spoiled line (on sale last week at CVS for $0.99 each!).  Checkin' into Rehab is a small, fuchsia glitter in a deep purple base.  Love it!  It works really well with Folly, although I don't think my pictures show it to full effect; it's very sparkly in the sunlight!  You might also notice that I got a little crazy with my Seche Vite on this one.  I think I applied it too early, so the edges of my taped lines are a little fuzzy but I kind of like the effect.  Here's a closer view.

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit!
