Maiden’s Patience at 3 coats plus topcoat under artificial lighting.

To begin I laid a base color down of Maiden’s Patience by Femme Fatale. I purchased my bottle from but it is in stock at Live Love Polish right now! Maiden’s Patience is described as ” a frosty blue grey crelly with hints of turquoise and silver microglitter.” This was opaque for me at 3 coats and I applied HK Girl topcoat and let it completely cure before heading to the next step.

Next I will be using vinyls sent to me for review from Vibrant Vinyls. I chose the watermarble, mermaid, and quatrefoil versions and I will be featuring the quatrefoils today! I am pretty much a beginner at using these types of vinyls, and I’m really excited about adding these easy to use tools into more nail art designs!

From L to R: Watermarble, mermaid, quatrefoil.

To use the vinyls I used tweezers and pried up the easy pull tab and gave a firm and quick upwards lift. I had no problem with any of the cutouts straggling and had a clean lift every time! I then stuck the vinyl quickly to the back of my hand to lessen the adhesive a little bit before placing on my nail. I used tweezers to position the vinyl and then gently pressed all the edges flush with my finger.

Next I wanted to do a red and blue gradient using Zoya’s America and Sailor. To make them a little less opaque I also added Out The Door topcoat over the polish on the sponge. I dabbed two passes over the vinyl.

I immediately pulled off the vinyl after dabbing on the polish and got a nice clean image! I am so pleased with how these turned out! I did a little bit of cleanup using acetone and a cleanup brush before topcoating with HK Girl. This is the finished result:

I also received a clicking cuticle oil pen and Strip Me Softly acetone additive which I will be reviewing in an upcoming handcare post so be on the lookout for that!

So that rounds out this look in honor of Memorial Day! I want to extend a huge thank you to all the veterans who have and are serving, thank you so much for your service!
