Polish Days: MAN-icure!















It's that time again! Time for the monthly Polish Days post. November's theme is MAN. In honor of Movember. Like October is for breast cancer, November is the month to bring attention to men's health. Specifically testicular cancer. Our challenge was to create a design inspired by men or the Movember initiative (including the infamous Movember mustache mani). I vacillated between a few ideas and finally decided on one that I have never done before- with a personal twist of course. The Tuxedo Mani- with pinstripes!



For this design, I started with a base of two coats of American Apparel T-Shirt. Once fully dry I painted on Sinful Colors Black on Black. Using my dotting tool I drew on the bow ties and buttons. Again, I let everything dry fully. I then used China Glaze Elephant Walk and my medium striping brush to create the pinstripes. I topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.




Also for my US readers-today is Election Day and I know you've heard it a hundred thousand times by now but it's important- especially for us ladies! Get out there and vote! It matters now more than ever in our country to have your voice heard and counted. And remember- if you don't vote you can't complain!
