I'd like to take credit for the colour combinations I put together but most of the time it's just chance. I pick colours that look like they vaguely go together, slap it all on and hope for the best. It explains why some of my choices look better than others. Well, today, one I picked nearly at random worked really well. Do you know how hard it is to pick a complimentary colour to pink and green? Anyway, pink and green diamond glitter spaced apart = glitter snakeskin nails!
To start with, two coats of Nicole by OPI My Lifesaver, a sky blue with a hint of turquoise. Application was decent, not too streaky after two coats, always an issue with the lighter colours. Next, my stickiest top coat, ready for the glitter to be stuck on. Using my usual technique, I made extra sure to press all the points of each piece down, as this shape glitter will catch on everything if you're not careful. I also found working in columns, starting at the edge of your nail, the easiest way to get straight rows. I even added two coats of Seche Vite instead of one, to minimise the chance pieces would stick up. I wasn't prepared for how much this would look like snakeskin, am very pleasantly surprised!
The Verdict: Love how this came out. I think it's also up there for the most comments these have garnered me, which, quite frankly, is the goal. Yay attention!
It reminds me of a Jester's clothing, you know, kinda like Harley Quinn wears but less evil and more whimsical! I love it.ReplyDelete
