Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Today I am thankful for my hubby, James. He is my best friend and the love of my life. He supports me in all my crazy crafting adventures, and is my biggest fan. I can't imagine my life without him <3

Today I had a creative block. When I was complaining about the block to my friends, Sunny at 365 Days of Color pointed out Chalkboard Nails post earlier this week. Such an awesome idea; accept for one problem, I have zero patience for taped manis lol. I was mad at her, because I knew I had to do it because it was a great idea ahaha. #nailpolishproblems

I started with Ulta Set In Nude. I sponged a bit of FingerPaints You're Kiln Me over it to try for a more "baked" effect. Then I played the waiting game for it to dry enough to tape. After a looooooooong wait, I busted out my striping tape. This is the first chance I have used it! My OCD really appreciates the even thickness in stripes lol.

Once I taped it all off (lots of patience while taping) I sponged a heavier coat of FingerPaints You're Kiln Me to darken it up a bit because I didnt have a good dark red cream. Then I topped it with a thin coat of Zoya Rehka.

Cherry is my favorite pie. What's yours?
