Cookies & Cream

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been away from my blog for the past few days. December is a hectic holiday month and I've gotten myself swept up in the craziness.

Today I have a simple cute mani to show you all, inspired by my favorite candy bar. This weeks Monday Nail Art Challenge on PAA is Candy Coma. The holiday season usually comes with tons of candy. I already did a candy cane design this month, so I wanted to do something different. Cookies & Cream candy bars came to mind.

I used two coats of Essie Bone Chilling. Its the perfect off white for white chocolate. The application was good, above average for a white polish. For the cookie chunks, I wanted small and large black glitter. Love & Beauty Black Knight has both, but the small glitter is too dense. So I lightly brushed on Black Knight to get the amount of small glitter I wanted. Then I layered one coat of Wet n Wild Tangled in my Web on top. 

I did this manicure yesterday and used Seche Rebuild for the first time. My nails have been peeling and breaking more than normal. My work is hard on my nails; it dries them out. So does the winter weather. I've seen rave reviews about Rebuild so I decided to give it a try. I will let you all know how it goes in case anyone is thinking of trying it out.
