Moon Prism Power

Hello Pretties, 
I will admit that I have been very lazy lately, and have been watching an embarrassing amount of 90's cartoons. The excessive rain has discouraged me from doing outfit posts. Never fear! I may look unkempt, but my nails are fierce as ever. Personally, I find it inconvenient to go to a salon and pay for a twenty dollar manicure that last two days. My nails were inspired by Sailor Moon and the other Sailor Scouts! Revlon has their new Colorstay Gel Envy nail polish, which I adore! I bought two bottles for just under ten dollars at Wal-Mart.  Even if you do not like their wide color selection, consider their Diamond Top Coat #010.  My nails have survived work, dishes, and all of my daily routines.  My fresh nails are typically destroyed after one day, but I can see myself painting my nails more with the Revlon gel nail polish.  For these nails I bought Wet n Wild's Glitter Nail Color in shade #492C for the base coat.  I wanted big glitter flecks in pink to look just like Sailor Moon's nails when she transforms!  This was the most dramatic pink I could find.  It was about $2.50 at Wal-Mart, as well.  For the Sailor Scout symbols I used Revlon's Sure Thing #510.  If you must know I am not ambidextrous. If I were to paint these straight onto my nails it would take me a year to make them look this clean.  What is my secret to perfect nail art every time? Paint it on plastic first, let dry, then peel it off.  I used a Zip Lock bag for my symbols.  I would also suggest painting thickly, or doing two coats.  This will make it easier to peel without tearing.  Once your decal is removed position it on your nail and apply a few top coats. These tricks will help you save mega salon money, Sailor Moon says!

So this post (while completely inapplicable to myself) made me really really really happy…90s cartoons are definitely a treasure trove in terms of inspiration for…well..everything! Love this blog.

I do have to admit I loved Sailor moon growing up and even now with the new series. Your nails at bitchin and I'm quite honestly jealous how perfect your symbols are. Much love Maddi: )
