Creative musings in bright colors

Starry Sky

It’s Frosty Outside from the OPI Mariah Carey Holiday collection has been sitting in my untried, just begging to be used. I was thinking of turning it into the giant ball at Times Square, but I did that last year. So, how about using it as stars and the moon? The moon is textured, right?

This manicure was a lot of fun to put together. It’s Frosty Outside went on in two beautiful easy coats. I LOVE the large mirror glitters! This was one on the medium side for texture…I could definitely feel it but it didn’t get caught on anything. Perfect! And its a true silver, not grey.

The accent nails were easy…moon and stars on dark blue (Blue Moon by Wet n’ Wild). The hard part was deciding what to do with the silver nails! I couldn’t just leave them alone!

I ended up with a lacy diagonal french tip. I though it somewhat looked like stars. Also, I just wanted to play with my dotting tool/unbent hair pin (you will be seeing a LOT of dots coming up!). I’m happy with how they came out!

Unfortunately, living near/in a big city, I almost never get to see the stars. I used to stargaze somewhat frequently, and I even own a (now defunct) telescope! Maybe some day I will move someplace with less light pollution. Like the mountains. …or recently, a Bedouin tent in the desert 😀
