Gradient Nail Art

What's More Girly Than Hello Kitty?

Nothing To Disclose
A few weeks ago I had a less than stellar day at work. Normally, I handle rough work days by taking myself to Panera Bread, but on this particular occasion I decided to spend a few bucks on something I had on my eBay Watch List. Fast forward my gems arrive and it was finally time to play!

I've done Hello Kitty nail art before so why not give it another go with some gold metallic pieces right? Right?

Before I added the gold pieces to my ring finger I started with a base of LeChat Dare To Wear Flawless White. Next, I sponged a gradient of Barielle Life of the Party and LeChat Dare To Wear Violetta. For my remaining fingers I used my OB12 stamping plate and Sally Hansen Color Quick in Silver Chrome. (I scored a couple of the Color Quick pens for $1 each awhile back. If you can still find them, they're great for stamping.)

Alright quick story about these nails.
I took an unplanned trip to the mall and lo and behold I ended up in Sephora (no shock there I'm sure). The cashier then asked to see my nails and after reaching out my hand to an incredibly obvious point that allowed her to see details would you believe this dumb ass said, and I quote verbatim, "
Is that crackle?" I politely said no, but what I wanted to say was, "Since when does Hello kitty look like crackle polish you idiot?"

I know what you guys are thinking. I'm way too harsh but if you were there you'd know that by far this is the ditsiest cashier I've ever had the displeasure of being cashed out by. I have a long history of run-ins with just plain stupid Sephora employees by the way. Just moments earlier she advised me the the Formula X glitters I bought were meant as toppers (no shit Sherlock as if I can't read the huge nail bar display or bottle for myself) and that I should buy some of the flat colors also--no harm in suggestive selling, I used to work retail so I understand. She then goes on to say, "Um, you wanna buy these too then?" as she holds up some random piece of product placed at the counter for the impulse buyer in all of us.

Worst. sales. pitch. ever. Does Sephora only hire the brainless as sales reps/beauty consultants? Pretty sure I'll be shopping at from now on.

Anyway, happy Monday folks.
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
