NOTD: Silver Bolt

Here is a recent manicure inspired by Nailside's awesome lightening bolt tutorials.

Here is something that you don't know about me: I am impatient when it comes to waiting for things to dry or cool off. I always ice cupcakes too soon resulting in a melted icing mess. I usually touch my manicures while they're still tacky, and need to do touch ups. I could give you more examples, but I will save them for another day. I tried putting tape on top of OPI's Rumple's Wiggin' to block off the section for the lightening bolts... but it wasn't dry. Nails ruined, it was a horrible mess. 

I removed everything and re-did the lilac and instead free-handed the lightening bolts (Chine Glaze Cheers to You) Not super-crisp lines, but I got the effect I wanted and I was happy with the results! Here are some more pics, enjoy :)
