Mani Monday

I've been wanting to try China Glaze's "For Audrey" since hearing rave reviews from other bloggers on the Tiffany Blue color. I was home sick all weekend with a cold while my husband was working so what better time for a nail project? :) Please excuse the henna that is still lingering on my hands- I was in my friend's Indian wedding last weekend and while the henna was beautiful when in tact, now just looks a bit like self-tanner gone wrong. Anyhow, here it is!

I used China Glaze "For Audrey" for 1 coat all over the nail and let it dry. Then, I used scotch tape to section off the diagonal areas and painted them in Essie "No Place Like Chrome". Then, I used a Sally Hansen nail art pen in black to draw the black diagonal line and color the tip and a Seche Vite top coat. I think they came out pretty good for the most part! 

I loved both the China Glaze and Essie polishes- they have a nice texture and dry quickly. As for the Sally Hansen nail art pen, I'm not sure if I like it or not. It turned out a little streaky but was pretty easy to use. Have any of you used these and, if not, what's your favorite tool/polish for nail art?
