Hubby's Picks (HP32): Day and a dollar late

I could Google that phrase to find out what it means but then the mystery would be gone and what fun would that be? But I imagine it works with this...

So Sunday was Father's Day and I got in over my head. For special occasions we make yummy for for each other and I got it in my head I'd make half of his Yum board from Pinterest. I spent, literally, the whole day cooking and baking. 0.0

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I have nothing for yesterday so my excuse there is a day and a dollar. See? It fits!

This is what happens when you take photos in direct sunlight, don't check them, and move onto the next manicure you're behind on. It was actually a deeper and more sultry look.

Get the look:
  • First lay down your colored base with glitter. This one had large circles in it (Glam Polish Lucky - a teal jelly with lots of glitters) so it'd be hard to do art with so it went down as the base.
  • Next I sponged the darkest and solid colored polish (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Grey Area - a purple toned mushroom grey) and then sponged the topper over it to create a slight duo chrome effect. (Ulta Sugar Cookie - a very shimmery gold topper that has a slightly glass flecked glitter feel to it).
  • Finally I added swirled accent dots in Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Lava.
There you have it! I really wish I had gotten better photos of this one because it was simply stunning. The look of sponged duochrome over a jelly is a beautiful combo.

If you recreate this or any Hubby's Picks look send me a link to your post or email me a photo and I'll feature it on the following week's post. I'd love to see your creations!
