Arrrgggghhhh, my index nail broke right the way down, so I had to (my brain can't deal with one short and 9 long) cut them all down to around the same length. It's weird how much you have to re-adapt doing thing when you nails go from long to short, especially using your phone. I have had very little motivation to do my nails lately and in desperate times, I turn to my Espionage Cosmetics stash and this time, it was the 8-Bit Hearts wraps that called to me.
Now, I feel like this is going to make me look like a dumbass but I have been looking at the instructions for these wraps at least twice a month for nearly a year and I have never, NEVER, noticed that the topcoat phase was optional!!! I thought topcoat was a integral part of the process and as such had gone through a whole heap of annoyances with the topcoat phase. But this time I left topcoat out. I applied OPI Nail Envy, Barry M Cotton because the wraps were transparent and I thought they would look great over a white base, then I added the wraps, made sure everything was stuck down properly and went about my business. They lasted me 5 days! 5 days sans topcoat before I started to get tip wear, and they looked great the entire time. I was very impressed with these wraps before but I feel like this has really enhanced my perception of them.
These ones glow in the dark too. It was a little harder to capture because the hearts are pretty tiny really but I managed to snag this one photo that I thought was pretty awesome.
I am going to be wearing another set of Espionage Cosmetics wraps soon because International Tabletop Day is coming up this week and I have the perfect set put aside. Hopefully I'll have some motivation soon and I can get on with other nails. I have thought of a few designs I might do so I just need a kick up the ass to actually do them!
