Mint-chocolate or just brown mints?

What you see is China Glaze's Re-fresh mint, some stickers for french manicures, a nice chocolate brown (aka #188) polish from Depend and a woman who's cross-eyed from reading too much.

Not too bad considering it was my first attempt, but the stickers left a lot of residue. It took scrubbing and a good night of sleep to get rid of it.
The nails are shorter than ever. They can't handle Orly's Bonder. Well, they can as Bonder makes polish last forever and then simply, be peeled off in chunks, but it also dries my nails completely. Like sun-dried cardboard.

I like this mani! I love the mint and the brown together. I think you did a great job - if you hadn't said this was your first time trying this, I would've never known.

Superfint! Jag måste säga att jag älskar bilderna du tar, de är alltid så himla fina! :D

Mina är absurt korta nu också. Jag brukar ha dem ganska korta för det känns bäst så, men häromdagen bet jag av dem allihopa under ångest/stress. Aj aj aj och allt arbete med att få fina naglar förstört.

Those look so wicked. Have you tried putting a topcoat on the base colour and letting it dry completely then putting the sticker on? It might help with cleaning the gunk off because it's a smoother surface than polish on it's own. I don't know how rubbing alcohol and polish mesh but I used to take the stocker gunk off DVD boxes with rubbing alcohol. Maybe test it before trying it on a mani.

*sticker gunk.
Not stocker. >.<

Oh my, it DOES look like after eight's. It would be even better if the mint was the small part and the rest of your nails would be ''chocolate''. =D

Oooh, gu' va reeetro! :D Jag älskar det. Innovativt som alltid Lisa. Du är toppen. <3

->Skulda: This is where I confess to not even owning a topcoat. There are times I wish I did, like when I have applied a chunky glitter that has a surface like the Rockys....

->Nihrida: I was thinking about that too but as my nails are supershort, I figured this would bring more depth to the manicure, making the nails look longer.

->All: Thanks!
