Week 9 - Red Coat Tuesday

52 comments

Hi guys. Just another beautiful sunny day here in Jersey, even though there is still plenty of snow on the ground. Such a strange combination of weather this year. For those that don't know, my nail corner is located in the attic and the past few days it's been holy hot up there. Anyway, it's time for my favorite day of the week 'Red Coat Tuesday' and a new Pretty Little Liars tonight. If you don't watch the show, the previous seasons are available on Netflix. Now here is my mani for this week!

Week 9 - Red Coat Tuesday

Although I like how this mani ended up, it was completely not what I was going for. Can you believe this started out as a watermarble? Yup, it was a night full of nail fails haha. But I think I recovered quite nicely with this classic looking mani. What do you think?

Week 9 - Red Coat Tuesday

Here's the materials used to create this look:
  • Polishes: Sally Hansen Black Out, Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, and CDB Lacquer A Monsters Nightmare (which will be reviewed tomorrow)
  • Various Rhinestones from eBay
  • Fast Drying Topcoat: Seche Vite

I was going to record a video for the mani, but there was nothing to really show since this ended up being such a simple design. During my initial attempt to create a watermarble I recorded the process, but as I mentioned it was a total fail. Perhaps I should just upload the fails for the 'lols'.

Week 9 - Red Coat Tuesday

As always, make sure you check out the other ladies participating in this weeks 'Red Coat Tuesday'! There are only one or two episodes left until the season finale and the massive secret we've all been waiting for!

    1. As soon as I had this one on I knew I had to use it for Red Coat Tuesday. The ring nail was the only one who survived the nail fail marble lol.
