Matte-Shimmer Mani | Fashionlingual

Happy Mani Monday! Ever treat yourself to a mani-pedi only to have it chip within hours? Yup, that's what happened to me over the weekend...grrr! I was so peeved that it was chipping by Sunday night (but too much of a chicken to go back to the nail salon) that I decided to freshen up the mani, myself.

You know what they say, if you want something done right, you've gotta do it yourself. 

To camouflage the nicked nail lacquer, I polished just the chipped tips. Some days my hands are steady. Some days I sip way to much coffee to entertain the idea of freehanded manicures with black polish. Today's sitch was the former, so I used precut and curved nail stickers to ensure painted on lines that looked fairly precise and intentional.

That's it for me. I won't be returning to that nail salon, but the mani wasn't a total loss.
