Denim Scorpion

I bought this new China Glaze color from the Vintage Vixen collection and it immediately reminded me of denim.  So I decided I'd make pockets, and name the post after the best misquote from my sister of a local amusement park ride; it's named Steel Venom, but she calls the Denim Scorpion.  I love her misquotes mostly because they have so much conviction.

Three coats were used in Midnight Mission.  The colors used for the embellishments were Orly Rage, Luxe, So Easy Stripe Rite in White, Silver and Gold Metallic.  I sealed the look with one coat of Seche Vite and then matted the entire look with Essie Matte About You.  (I find that the matte finish tends to make polishes bleed--as you can see with my middle finger on my left hand where I did not seal first, so a top coat first makes a big difference.)

Holy crap! Totally hilarious. That sister of yours must be pretty amazing to inspire such a cool mani.
