4th of July, Fantasy Fireworks Fauxnad

Hi Kids!
!Warning!  If you like classy/subdued/simple manis, you might want to get your eye bleach ready. The following fauxnadicure out Blings anything I've ever done.  o_O
I didn't mean for this fireworks mani to be so Blingy. I had to do something to cover up 2 disasterous smudging accidents while stamping.

I really *love* how this turned out! It reminds me of Orthodox Vestment fabric.
Anyway- this is 3 coats Orly Royal Navy, several fauxnad and Bundle Monster plates, lots of frankens to stamp with, blue holo sequins, red, coral, lilac iridescent hex sequins, glitter stripers, 1 coat of Seche over Royal Navy ~this is what made my stamper slip and smudge :(
and 2 or 3 coats seche over the finished mani.
Eight coats of polish plus the stamping and the glitter makes for a lot of layers on my acrylics.

My first video...check out the sparkle that my stills didn't capture!

Saori said...

<span>What  a great work again !! That remind me a mosaico !! But not a bathroom's mosaico lol, an art mosaico :) </span>

lisa said...

I don't know, I would certainly call that classy. Royal nails really. Wedding nails maybe? Instead of those french manicures, people should go for something like this. Elaborate, once-in a lifetime type of thing.

Or something, I stray.
Great nails.

Jo Revenge said...

Those look amazing, although I would completely and utterly fear having to take all that off, haha.

I haven't been on this for awhile.  For some reason my computer said there was something on your web site that was a threat and took your blog right out of my computer.  That was on my laptop.  Hopefully there's nothing wrong again since I'm on my desktop.  This manicure is insane.  Looks like fireworks going off on your nails.  Lots of layers of polish but it's worth it.  I so admire the talent you have with nail art.  I can just about paint my nails and your work is divine.  I really enjoy looking at it.  You should be featured in a nail magazine.  Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
