Week 5 - Red Coat Tuesday

33 comments

Hiya guys. How's it going today? I've been so anxious to go home already and play with polish. It's so frustrating when inspiration hits and I'm stuck in the middle of work. Of course, I'll go home and my mojo will be completely missing in action. I'll be left to sing 'baby come back to me' to myself as I play the worlds smallest violin. That's what ended up happening to me last night, just in time for this weeks Red Coat Tuesday. It was so frustrating and it took an entire bag of chocolate to finally get me to come up with a mani. Oh the sacrifices us nail girls make, haha. What I ended up doing is actually half PLL inspired and half Valentine appropriate. Let's have a look:

Red Coat Tuesday Nails

This mani is actually a recreation of a mani I created around this time last year. Originally, I did all the polka dots on a white base, but this year I decided some more red was in order.

Here's the materials used to create this look:
  • Polishes: Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, Sally Hansen Black Out, and OPI Race Red
  • Detail Art Brush
  • Dotting Tool
  • Fast Drying Topcoat: Seche Vite
Valentine Lips Mani

I think this mani could of worked out with any number of color combinations. A really funky variation could be a different base color on every nail. Kind of retro feeling. The macro shot is one of my favorites of all time. I'm really proud of how the lips turned out, but I think I could of been neater with the polka dots.

What do you guys think? Any PLL fans excited for tonight's episode? As always be sure to check out the other ladies participating in this weeks Red Coat Tuesday.
