April always gives me anxiety because taxes are due on April 15 in the US. When I painted this manicure, I hadn’t finished filing yet. I wished the forms would just disappear, so I created this vanishing manicure with the help of a thermal top coat.
I don’t have an exact match for the blue color of the 1040 tax form, but Julep’s Matilda was a close enough option. I painted 2 coats of this pretty sky blue creme polish on all of my nails.
Because I needed to do my nails fast so I could actually finish my taxes, I opted to use the Born Pretty BP-L064 plate to do some stamping.
Using Ya Qin An stamping polish in Black, I stamped numbers from the tree in the center of the plate across all my nails except for my ring finger where I opted to use the books from the first image in the middle row.
To add a whimsical disappearing element to this manicure, I applied a layer of Born Pretty Holo Thermal Top Coat. This interesting product is black when cold and turns into a milky transparent color when warm and allows you to turn any of your manicures into a thermal one.
It’s a fun way to make a manicure disappear and reappear!

I can safely report that my taxes are paid and filed right now, so I’ll be good until next year! Now I can finally get back to painting my nails.
