Glitter!! My top two favorite nail polish finish next to cremes. Ultimate extremes I know. LOL
Of course I had to bust out Purple Rain by Glitzology! I barely used it the last time. Purple Rain features glitters in many shades of purple. There are squares, hexes and shreds from lilac to dark purple.
I just found out hoe the ‘dabbing’ method of glitter application was through a youtube video the other day and decided to give it a go. Dabbing method = crazy amounts of glitter on my nails!
I layered Purple Rain over Sally Hansen Purple Potion. Hence the blue flash/duochrome-iness in the photos.
OK. It seems that I didn’t read the rules properly and missed out the last day that I was supposed to send a request to Erica to take part in her challenge. Oopsie! Owh well, Since I have already done a few designs, I shall continue with the challenge whether or not I am linked with the other wonderful ladies.
Galaxy nails. One of the many nail art techniques I was crazy scared to try. I always loved to see them on other nail bloggers but was afraid that I will never be able to do it as nicely or perfectly. Well, I guess I was wrong!
This really is one really easy manicure to do!
All you need is a bunch of complementing nail polishes, a regular make-up sponge and a dotting tool. I did not know which way to go with my galaxies and pulled out a bunch of purples and a pink for this challenge.
I started with a black base and sponged nebula shapes with my polishes, starting with the darkest tone as the base of the nebulae to the lightest as highlights. After all this was done I decided to add some glitter for glitz. I used Cult Nails Hypnotie Me on the clouds itself and dabbed a bit of Glitzology Purple Rain on the sides for extra oomph! After all that has dried a little I took my dotting tool and some white polish and dotted on some stars.
I actually started this manicure quite differently. take a look at my thumb here.
Initially I was inspired by this tutorial
at The Daily Nail but changed my mind and did it in purples instead. While editing the photos I thought that my original idea looked pretty cool. And Hypnotize Me
really did brings out the greens and yellows I used.
I think I may redo this on all my nails one day. What do you think? Do you prefer the purples or is a multi colored nebula more your cup of tea?
Polishes I used in this manicure:
Sally Hansen Purple Potion
Cult Nails Hypnotize Me
Glitzology Purple Rain
Etude House CPP001
OPI That’s Hot Pink
OPI Alpine Snow
OPI Black Onyx
That’s all I have to say about the polish featured here today. LOL
This is All or Nothing which I purchased about a month or 2 ago from Glitzology. It was made by Stacey for her younger sister. How sweet!
All or Nothing is (obviously) a glitter bomb packed full with hex glitters of many sizes in fuchsia, silver and teal holo as well as shreds in fuschia, teal and purple! That is a whole lot of glitter in one bottle – All or Nothing indeed!
I layered 2 coats of All or Nothing over a silver base. I can’t recall which though =/
Bokeh shot anyone? 🙂
