Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday--Chalkboard Nails!

Hi Readers!  Many of you know I have a deep fondness for Sarah of Chalkboard Nails.  Even though I like to bust her hump about her big head the truth is, she is a super great gal and one of the nicest nail polish friends I have.  She's sickeningly talented UG!  She did this one awhile ago BUT she showed the pic to me before she blogged about it and I was IN LOVE with it!  I really wanted to  try it out myself BUT I didn't have the polishes to do it at the time.  Well guess what???!!! I didn't have this time around either so I had to improvise!  It's amazing the things you can do when you put your mind to it!  Here is my version of Sarah's Harlequin Nails
Instead of using the Spiderman Metallics as Sarah did I used Revlon Carbonite to replace Number One Nemesis and Revlon Black With Envy to replace Into The Night.  I was lucky enough to have OPI Just Spotted The Lizard.  I used OPI Alpine White as a base before I got to taping!
Look at the lovely that is Just Spotted The Lizard!!! GAH it's gorgeous!
I loved staring at in the shade but then look at it in the light!
Now shade again with the cool antique "slave" ring I bought awhile ago!
Man this is a GORGEOUS mani!!!
I got a bazillion compliments on this one too.  Sorry Sarah but I took ALL the credit!  When everyone asked where I got them done I simply smiled and said I did them myself.  Then their eyes goggled out of their heads as they looked at me in disbelief but yes this is my hobby and I am good at it lol!  I didn't tell them I totally stole the idea but I'm telling you.  I TOTALLY STOLE THIS IDEA FROM THE GREAT AND WONDERFUL SARAH!! Check out here original mani of it here.
Here's a nice side by side pic of mine and Sarah's
If you're not following her blog you should, she is AHmazing.  Don't tell her that though because I'm worried her head is going to get SO big she won't be able to get in and out of the door anymore!
