Last night I was looking through my list of followers and their sites and came across a style from GretalRabbit that I just had to try, white dots on black and vice versa. I'm so happy with how it came out! I started with two coats of Wet n Wild Black Creme and added different sized dots to the corners. I thought I'd play with the accent finger too, adding two coats of Love and Beauty silver bar glitter. The glitter covered really well, by the way. Finally, bonus matte version! I think I prefer it in this case as it makes my nails look like pieces of a mug, which I actually like!
It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night. My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off. I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried. I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats. Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner. It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today. Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage. That's ok, glitter dries fast. It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix. The Verdict: Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y
Ooh, cool! Haha, pieces of mug. So true!ReplyDelete
Your version is so much better than mine- my dots were nowhere near as even as yours! I love that bar glitter too :)ReplyDelete
I realy love this manicure, because black and silver is my favorite combo. I love it matte best. I can't tell from the photo if you mattified the glitter, but I think it would be great without the glitter mattified. Make it more of a "statement" nail, being so far and away different.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the kind comments! I did add matte to the glitter but you're right, it would have been better shiny. One day I'll learn to just stop :)Delete
