Hello Lovely Ladies,
Today I have a manicure that started off with a super sweet Christmas Gift from Mary (from Swatch And Learn).
Mary has become a dear friend of mine and she thought I would appreciate having China Glaze Live, Love, Laugh in my collection (given that I have “Live, Laugh, Love” tattooed on my inner-wrist)… and Mary was right!
So I thought I would show you a simple look AND a different studded look… what I call a recycled manicure 😉
China Glaze Live, Love, Laugh is a neon berry-pink that leans ever so slightly into the red-zone 😉 It is a jelly polish and required four thin coats to achieve full opacity. It is a very special shade in my collection now not only for it’s name, but because it is a gift from a dear friend who is as vibrant and beautiful as this lovely shade 😉
Pinky: two coats of Dandy Nails Moonglow (a medium toned silver/grey with holographic glitter)
Ring Finger: two coats of OPI MBSW stamped with Bundle Monster BM-311
Middle Finger: four coats of China Glaze Live, Love, Laugh
Pointer and Thumb: Cult Nails Blackout
Whenever I do a skittlette manicure (and really like it) I am tempted to wear it for as long as possible… but sometimes some nails chip faster than others… or I want to change the look a little to match my ‘outfit’ (the matchy matchy in me requires it 😉 )… sooo, I just switch a few shade around… and… create a different look 😉
To change this skittlette manicure I painted my middle finger with two coats of OPI Do You Lilac It and added some silver square studs from the Born Pretty Store. I also applied one coat of OPI Crown Me Already to the pinky for some added bling that complimented (IMO) the silver studs 😉

Do you ever “recycle” a manicure? Change a nail or two to give it a different feeling?
Which of these two looks do you like better?
