Today’s nails were 100% inspired by The Crafty Ninja, who, by the way, has the best blog name ever. Today’s GOT Challenge color was “purple”, so I dragged out my oldest purples and set to work!
I started with a light to dark gradient, and then covered it with a new polish (I know, not a golden oldie, but I wanted to play with it!) I Only Have Ice For You by KBShimmer. It is a beautiful holo glitter topper filled with bit holo bits, small holo bits, and shards. I love it! This is two coats over my gradient.
When that was dry, I taped off a chevron down the middle and covered the sides with grey. Honestly, I should have stuck to Crafty Ninja’s idea and used a very light grey…the end color scheme was a bit darker than I wanted.
My accent nail got individually placed holo circle glitters from I Snow You Love Me by OPI…I even cut some into smaller pieces for the edges! This is going to be awful to remove, but it is SUPER glittery and I rather like it.
- Light purple: Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac
- Medium purple: Zoya – Malia
- Dark purple: Sinful Colors – Fig
- Grey: WOW – #333
- Holo top coat: KBShimmer – I Only Have Ice For You
- Holo glitter: OPI – I Snow You Love Me
My biggest complaint? I need to remember to moisturize before I take photos! My fingers are a mess. Please excuse them 😦
So, that’s all for my purple day! Stay tuned tomorrow for more glitter, more circles, and more KBShimmer 😀
