Creative Layering with OPI and China Glaze... and a Road Trip!

One of the great nail groups I'm in on Facebook, Polish-aholics Anonymous, has a Monday mani challenge. Today's theme was creative layering. Last week Lacquered Lover posted a photo in the group of shatter/crackle over liquid sand polishes and it looked pretty cool, so I decided to try it! I used two coats of OPI The Impossible. Once that was dry I applied one coat of OPI Black Shatter, then one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust, one coat of Gelous, and one coat of HK Girl.

It didn't come out quite as cool as I had envisioned, but it's nice to get out of my comfort zone every one in a while and try something new. Speaking of something new, I went on a Corvette run yesterday with my grandpa and it was so cool! We drove 250 miles through scenic back roads of mainly Marin and Sonoma Counties. The weather was perfect! Here's a few photos from the trip:

I really can't imagine living anywhere else! Thanks for reading. :)
