In this post I want to share couple of latest acquisitions: the crackle nail polish and my first corset. I'm very excited about both.
First I'll show you my corset. It's not a real one though, as it doesn't have laces in the back or a strong bone but it's tight and it will do for now. I wanted one for the longest time but I had problem with yo-yoing weight and was feeling apprehensive about what size to pick etc. Finally I thought enough is enough and now I couldn't be happier. I'm definitely going to be adding more corsets to my corset family in the near future.
I bought this corset at Hot Topic. At the price of $39.99 CA it was a perfect starting price. I know there are other, more elaborate corsets out there, probably better quality and by the same token more expensive but this one was perfect for the beginning.
Now for the nail polish. This is the silver crackle I got from O.P.I. for Sephora. It is called "Blasted Silver".
I picked black to go with my silver for the most dramatic effect. The black is also by O.P.I. for Sephora and the name is "What's the Tire Jack".
And last but not least, here is my nail art. I realized after I bought both colors that I really wanted mostly black nails and should have really gotten black crackle with silver underneath but I decided to work with what I got. The only way to get mostly black was to paint the top with crackle polish and leave the tips black. I tried the other way around but realized I preferred black tips. I will still get black crackle polish and maybe couple of background colors such as deep red, purple and of course silver. You can get really creative with these and being a creative person this makes me very happy.
