I'm so excited to have submitted my nail art to the Rite Aid Nail Extravaganza contest. Today is the last day to submit. I believe they will choose the top 10, then the public will vote for a winner beginning June 12th. There are hundreds of really good submissions. My manicure for this entry was inspired by blogger Nailside's - Explosion tape manicure. Her work is so awesome & I finally, with much practice was able to figure out the tape placement for the explosion. I did have to use Seche Vite in between each layer of polish because of time restrictions with my boys but I was able to get it all out neatly. Also since I had that layer of Seche Vite in between, wherever there was a mistake I was able to take my tiny paint brush with acetone and quickly fix it without ruining the rest of the application. It was pretty fun to do & was inspirational for other manicures I plan on doing. I used Revlon's - Metallic, Santee's - Black & China Glaze's - Pretty in Pink. Thanks for visiting!!
