Extend-A-Mani by Sheila at Pointless Cafe

Hi everyone! If you don't know me already, I'm Sheila from Pointless Cafe...pinch-hitting for Jeanie today!

My Extend-A-Mani posts have been popular so I thought I'd show you guys my latest one. Being the lazy sort (I could have said "busy woman on the go," but we all know I'm just lazy sometimes LOL) I frequently do simple nail art to extend my current manicure.

I was wearing Nails Inc. Tate, which is a luscious blue-based red...

Okay FINE. I was wearing Nails Inc. Tate AND enjoying a yummy cupcake. I wear this one so frequently that I didn't get any other photos of it so you'll just have to look at the cupcake. *evilgrin* The tip wear isn't bad at all on my left hand, but it's a little worse on the right, so it was time to extend it.

I used Zoya Flynn and Milani Black Swift (my go-to black creme) for this one.

Using the polish brush I just swiped free-handed swaths of each one diagonally and then with a striping brush I added the extra black stripe. One coat of Poshe top coat and I was good to go! Covers the tip wear, doesn't subject my hands to any more acetone than necessary and it's a good way for me to practice little easy nail art techniques. As you can see in the close-up, it's not perfect, but at arm's length it's fantastic.

What do you think? Will you try this one? Works with any colors!

Thanks to Jeanie for allowing me to do a guest post for you guys! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!
