So I found a really great blurple in Joe Fresh....colour I can't remember and the internet is not helping me and now feel the need to use it EVERYWHERE. The annoying thing is that it looks different on this monitor at work than it does at home and on, but trust me, it's right in the middle between blue and purple and looks awesome. As I was contemplating using it, my favourite holo gold glitter sprouted a month and yelled at me until I put them together. NOT CRAZY, THAT HAPPENED. I thus present to you the most military-y mani you can make with blurple nail polish and gold glitter! Oh yes, that's a great intro paragraph.
Anyway, the mystery blurple Joe Fresh polish is a really nice to use creme, I only needed two coats to get the coverage I like, and I like a lot of polish. Next, starting with my index finger, I added my military triangles. I know there's a term for the shape, I just can't think of what it is. Googling "fancy names for triangles/arrows" didn't help me either. Starting at the side of my nail, I added the glitter in a slightly zig-zag column. I then built out the rest of the triangle, using my usual technique. For my thumb, I reversed the shape but I was tired by that point so don't look to closely at it. I've found lately that two coats of Seche Vite on glitter makes everything extra smooth and glossy, always a plus.
Oooh, I love this! I've never seen anyone do the triangles with loose glitter from the side of the nail. I'll have to try this soon, I've been neglecting my loose glitter but your posts always make me want to pull it out! :)ReplyDelete
ps, I just found your blog and I love it! I love creative and intricate nail designs (and glitter!!) I'm getting so many ideas :)
The name of the polish should be at the bottom of the bottle? I think I see the sticker in the first photo. I'm guessing "Sea Blue", which is fairly blurple. The name is also listed in fine-print above the UPC.ReplyDelete
