Fashion Week is over pretty much everywhere and while it will be a while before we see the runway looks in stores, I’ve already seen some of the runway manicures on the tips of many celebs and friends.
Since my manicure was chipping, I decided to use some runway inspiration when I did my manicure over the weekend. I headed to Walgreens and found Sally Hansen products that would create this week’s manicure.
I was inspired by the Alexandre Herchovitch Fashion Week Spring 2012 runway show manicure called Sugar Babe.
It was created with transparent glitter. Sally Hansen had glitter strips and glitter gel manicure product but I went with glitter polish from the line Gem Crush.
I was also excited to try Sally Hansen Double Duty because I was apparently one of the last people on Earth to still apply base coat and top coat separately. Now there will be just one bottle for me to use every week when I do my manicure! Three cheers for Sally Hansen!
I chose Sally Hansen Gem Crush color Razzle Dazzler because it was the perfect nail color for my complexion and it fit the Alexandre Herchovitch Sugar Babe manicure inspiration perfectly!
The bottle suggested I apply 2 or 3 coats on my nails. I used two coats and didn’t apply a top coat. My nails definitely look like I was wearing polish with crushed pieces but it went on smooth and without any clumps.
I absolutely love the finished manicure I created. I heart nail art so much I woke up this morning looking at my nails and thought this Monday would feel special every time I looked at my nails. It’s hard to feel anything other than happy when you see these nails, right?
On a random note for Walgreens shoppers, they are having a BOGO 50% sale on Insta Dri and Salon Effects at Walgreens that runs until 3/30/13. If you buy 2 between 3/10-3/16, then you will receive 2,000 balance rewards points. I used my Balance Rewards card while shopping and got a bunch of points just for picking up things I needed.
