Having received some of the fantastic right angle nail vinyls from Picture Polish for blog fest, I was excited to create another design with them. For this mani I used the second thinnest right angle vinyls and the thinnest straight vinyls. These are the nail vinyls from nailvinyls.com, which a selection is also available through Picture Polish.
My base is FNUG Pshychedelic and I used all six creme polishes from last years China Glaze Sunsational collection. I did have one problem with this mani, but luckily I was able to fix it all up.
The problem was, because I had the vinyls on my nails for quite a long time (because it took bloody ages to fill in each of these colours) I ended up with a sticky residue left on my nails. This really bummed me out because it meant I completely lost the holographic effect of the FNUG polish underneath.
First, after waiting for my stripes to be completely dry, I tried scrubbing my nails with warm soapy water. That didn't budge the stickiness. So next I tried a little bit of eucalyptus oil on a cotton round and it was perfect. It easily removed all the sticky residue and didn't effect my nail art at all. I then washed my hands thoroughly to remove the oil so I could put a couple of layers of top coat on.
Eucalyptus oil might be a bit harder for people in other countries to get, but for us Aussies you can grab huge bottles of it from the chemist. The other bonus - it smells so beautiful. I just love the smell of eucalyptus.
