Ah, suki suki!

I think it's appropriate that I chose to try a polish today called "Suki," since that makes me think of one of my favorite movies about friendship, "The Sweetest Thing."

My pal Kristy from My Life in Colors came over today to play with all the goodies I recently got from Born Pretty Store and to pillage my collection of polishes.  It was a really fun girl's morning, and I am so glad she came over and spent it with me!  We had a lot of fun brainstorming manicure ideas, swapping recipe ideas and just generally catching up.  Kristy has got a steady hand and a creative mind, and came up with the cutest manicure.  It was so fun to see what ideas another person could generate using the tools that were already at my disposal.  You'll have to head over to her blog to get some good closeups of her mani, but here's what I came up with for mine:

This is one coat of the Suki polish that I recently picked up in an import lacquer grab bag, then I applied striping tape in random criss-cross patterns and put Finger Paints Paper Mache over that.  Peel away the striping tape, and voila!  The stripes are a trifle messy on very close inspection, but at arm's length, the whole thing looks uh-mazing.  It helped that the Suki color was GORGEOUS.  Take a moment to appreciate it all by its lonesome:

Isn't the bottle just the cutest thing?  Oh, and by the way, it was SO stinkin' hot and humid today!  Every time we stepped outside to take pictures, our lenses would fog up!  That's okay, though, cause we were two happy chicas, with our air-conditioning and our toys! 

Ta-da!  Oh, and toenails were also done.  Check out the Zoya Reva that Kristy is rockin! 

And on that note, a-Reva-derci!


  1. Thanks so much! We must do this again! You have quite a collection. Next time maybe I will have something interesting we can use.... SWAK!

  2. Your nails look sweet! Kristy I love the color combo with yours :D
