Sinful Colors Espresso + Coke nails + Nail Fail

So I love Sinful Colors Espresso.  Seriously.  It's such a classy, rich colour. *drools*.

It's a gorgeous brown shimmer with red undertones. I used 3 easy coats although I could have gotten away with 2. It was a TAD on the thin side.  Not seriously, but I know for next time.  Some of the photos might make it look a bit brush strokey but in person they aren't noticeable.

Next I decided to keep on the Espresso and use them for Coke nails.  As you all probably know I love Coke.  But over the years it's become more costly. I sometimes buy it off the street.   Well it depends on the street.  You can't get Coke off every street corner.   Some don't have vending machines... See what I did there? Yup.  Anyways truth be told I rarely drink pop. It's kinda horrific for your insides.

Anyways for this I used the Espresso, then a coat of some OLD Wet n Wild gold glitter with no name. Followed by sponging on a mixture of Claire's Snowball and OPI's Over The Taupe. Then on top of then I put those clear microbeads to look like bubbles rising to the surface.  Then I shook a bottle of my Sally Hansen Quick dry top coat and put it on top so it would make extra real tiny bubbles.  Followed up with Seche Vite that was a bit thick.  I shook that bottle too. Finally another coat of the SH topcoat.  It looks pretty cool for an experiment if I do say so myself!

Finally I did watermelons on my right hand.  You would think they would be easy.  But I somehow managed to ruin them. They stink.  But I will still show them to you.

    1. Thank you! It's pretty much the seeds that ruin it for me. Some of them look like seeds others like inconsistent blobs. I know seeds are never the same but they all have that shape. That look. I'm strange like that :P

  7. WHOA those Coke nails are awesome! I like how they're all standing upright like proper little glasses of Coke. Adorable! Question: how did you solve the gravity problem? Like, if you turn them upside down wouldn't they all spill? Does this become quite messy when typing on your keyboard?

    :P

    1. Yes, but my keyboard is already jacked up from all the polish I spill on it so a tiny bit of nail coke only produces small, non lethal sparks.
