Hey everybody! Wow, I have to get my blogs done earlier, lol!
So I had an awesome nail art planned for today, but when I took off Julep Emilie tonight, this is what my nails looked like 😥
The glitter came off great wih the tinfoil method (see Ms. Lizard’s tutorial), but I was left with a mess of a stain on my nails, even though I put a base coat on 😦 This happened the last time I wore Emilie too. Guess I will have to try to put a couple coats under the colour to try to prevent the staining…
Anyways, so because I figured I should put an opaque polish on to cover the staining rather than the nail art I was going to do, I put on L’Oréal Mango-Get-Em. Then, to dress it up without going too overboard, I did a couple polka-dot flowers on my thumb and ring finger as accent nails.
L’Oréal Mango-Get-Em is a really pretty pinky-coral colour. I had to put on 3 coats, but that was mostly because you could still see the green stain underneath. I got this colour a few years ago because I thought it would match a coral dress I was going to wear to my cousin’s wedding. Turns out the dress was more orange-coral and the polish more pink-coral, so they didn’t match, and the dress didn’t fit anymore 😦
What do you do when your nail polish has stained your nails? Ms. Lizard also has a nail whitening tutorial but I didn’t have time to do it tonight and do a blog post. I did soak my nails in a bowl with warm water and lemon juice to try to make the stain a little lighter. It helped a little bit, but they are still fairly green under my new polish colour. I hope it comes off with the next polish change.
