Creative musings in bright colors

Duochrome, Mirrored

I love any excuse to use my treasured ultra chrome from ILNP. Since today is duochrome day in the OMD challenge, it looks like I get my excuse! What’s more, I also got to test-drive my new silver from the Sally Hansen foil finish line (no surprise, it works just like the gold I showed you Friday).

This mani started with two coats of Sterling Silver over my naked nail. I actually tried this one over a base coat too and it was impossible to work with. Naked nail it was! My left hand is a bit..smoother…than my right hand, so you don’t have to see as many pock marks. However, this polish still shows all the imperfections. Despite that, I love the finish. I think it is shinier than Liquid Gold, and certainly more “mirrored” than any other polish I own!

I saw a cool design with Birefringence by La Paillette Frondeuse and decided to do my own version using striping tape. For the studs, I painted Sterling Silver over some matte purple squares. I did not top coat the end product, since that might ruin the finish of the silver polish (even if you can’t see much of it).

This mani is mesmerizing! I am sad I only get to wear it for a day. I need to play some more with this pairing!
