There *is* such a thing as too much glitter. SinfulColors Pearl Harbor(glitter) over CG, For Audrey and CC Ultra Violet. Konad plates- M8, M26 & M20, stamped with Salley Hansen Insta-dry in Whirlwind White.
The SinfulColors glitter is just too chunky for the delicate Konad patterns I used..the better choice would have been Pure Ice in Oh Baby! I also should have left "well enough alone" and not added the lime green accents to the flowers.
One doesn't have to look too close to see smudges around my cuticles. When I first finished my initial color block of For Audrey and Ultra Violet, I thought that my nails looked like half peacock eyes. I went ahead and started to freehand some semi circles and "eyes". I thought it looked really great until I looked at my other hand...I am not ambidextrous. Thankfully, I had 2 coats of Seche over the color block and was able to remove the extra colors without ruining my base coat. It did, however, stain my cuticles something awful.
I think a Peacock Eye mani would be super original & look really cool. I just have to spend some time thinking things through with how to mask off.
Hi Readers! Although most know my net presence as ainos2, my real name is Lisa & I'm 48. I love make-up, nail polish, nail art and edgy fashion. Over the years I have mastered my sense of personal style. Never old, certainly not boring, I mix glamor, goth, playfulness, and sexiness for a bold and classy look. I like being different and strive to be original in everything I do.
I'm a corset maker, working as a restaurant manager, who found instant gratification from a creative outlet that takes less time. Nail art!
