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!
