One of my favorite indie brands, KraftyGurl, has this gorgeous polish called Wedding Day. Soft and pale pink, blue & green (or are they yellow?) glitters with some whites and holos thrown in the mix - LOVE IT. I had envisioned a pretty manicure with this beauty, but there was a disconnect somewhere between my mind and my fingers.
Wedding Day - the glitter does settle a little bit, but turn her over for a minute or two, and your brush gets so loaded, you won't know what to do with it all. Most fingers were one coat of glitter:
These are the colors I used:
Pure Ice - Bikini
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - White On
Pure Ice - Love
KraftyGurl - Wedding Day
I envisioned a water-color-like background with the glitter topper. The problem? The polish colors came out darker than I had imagined, and the glitter was lighter. I think I was picturing the colors if I had sponged them, but what I did was use one of the Saran Wrap methods. I base coated in white, and put dots of the colors, and some more white, on my nails and took a piece of Saran Wrap and just kind of smooshed it around. FYI - It can get pretty messy.
And here is the finished manicure. Not awful, but it just doesn't do Wedding Day any justice. I am wearing my sad face... :(. I am going to think a little and figure out what may be a good undie for this girl, and I'll be trying again.
You can find KraftyGurl on etsy <<here>>. Price is GREAT, and she ships lightning fast. Oh, and the glitters are BEAUTIFUL, can't forget that! I have more than a few of them.
That's all I've got for now - Nite all!
