A Very Crabby Mani

August 1, 2011

This is a very silly mani.

Crabby Mani

Ingredients: two coats Wet n Wild’s Black Creme, three coats Wet n Wild’s Prancer, a variety of Cina Nail Creations nail stickers from the Under the Sea sheet, and one thick layer of top coat.
The result?

Amusement.

My other hand has only one sticker: a red seahorse. Pictures… did not turn out so well. Oh well! I still think that it’s cute.

I also have to say, I was very impressed with Wet n Wild’s Black Creme. I had not had good luck with their polishes in the past, and definitely did not expect it to be a one coater. While I used two coats here, I think that a thick single coat would certainly provide opaque coverage. That said, Prancer (from a 2010 holiday collection) already has a special place in my stash: it was the polish that started this whole nail polish thing for me. Prancer can apply however it wants.
As for the nail stickers, they were very easy to apply (even with one of the cats, Truman, trying to help me – he was very concerned with sticker placement). I was surprised that they were spongy, as opposed to… I don’t know… flat sticker-like, but I had never used them before and didn’t know what to expect.

And the look on that crab’s face? Priceless.
