I love this manicure! I used tape that I cut to mask off the chevron design.
Here are my portraits for the week! Enjoy~

Man I totally forgot to update this on Tuesday. My schedule has been all messed up because I had to evacuate because of Hurricane Isaac! My boyfriend, my cat and I are safe, but the one road going to our apartment is flooded and the power has been out there for a few days so when we finally go home, we will be coming back home to a fridge full of bad food. But anyway, less about hurricanes, and more about portraits!

I stumbled upon this tutorial for super cute lightning inspired nails, and I knew I had to do them.
This is another manicure that I did a while ago, so I don’t remember what the black polish is, but I believe it was just some cheap polish anyway. The silver was Sally Hansen “Pedal To The Metal.” The grey is Zoya Polish “Kelly.”
It definitely doesn’t feel like it’s been a month already since I’ve started these daily portraits.
The top four are drawn in Photoshop CS6 and the bottom three are drawn in Corel Painter 12.
My birthday is on Thursday, so for this week I’ll be showing off my birthday manicure that I gave myself last night. I didn’t really have a plan in mind, I just kind of grabbed two random polishes and went to town.
I used Sally Hansen’s Pedal to the Metal and Milani’s Silver Dazzle. I also used Seche Vite for the top coat, which was awesome because I was able to pick up my knitting needles and work on my knitting project with practically no wait time. I love that stuff.
Hope you enjoy!
