If you take a look at some of the posts I've made over the past few weeks, you may notice that I have something of an affinity for glitter and sparkles. OMG was I in for a treat with OPI's Crown Me Already. This has to be my favourite glitter in my whole collection. Filled with at least four sizes of silver glitter, it is so sparkly and so silver that I'm having trouble concentrating while typing this as my nails are distracting. So easy to apply, dries fast and what you see here is two coats over Sally Hansen Celeb City. BUY THIS RIGHT NOW, IT IS AMAZING!
I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do. I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it. Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss. As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows? I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin. Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish. Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints. I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours. The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
