Hot Pink Rays

The last of my new polishes from Llarowe is a truly crazy glittermbomb by Different Dimension called Cranfairy. What made me really excited though is how much this polish reminded me of Shimmer polishes…which are perfect. Because it allowed me to do the art you see below, which I have been waiting to put together for months!

Polish first. Cranfairy is an insane mix of hot pink glitters in a deep pink (almost red) jelly base. Shown here is 3 thinnish coats…there is so much glitter that the polish clumps a bit coming out, but is very easy to spread. I only used three coats because the top one was incredibly thin, to spread out the glitter. I spotted small and medium pink hexes, and pink squares. There are also tiny black micro glitters, and maybe some red? It is so sparkly it’s actually hard to tell! As expected, this is a glitter bomb, so wear a peel-off base or be prepared to kill your nails with polish removal! In warning, even with two thick coats of top coat, the polish was not completely smooth.

The design on my accent nails is lifted straight from La Paillette Frondeuse. I had seen this design months ago and saved it. I kept going back to it…but none of my glitters had the punch I needed to faithfully showcase the design! My Shimmer polishes have too many colors, and most of my other glitter bombs have glitter that is too large to fit with this design. Enter Cranfairy!

I think with this bit of art I can safely say that I have mastered dot-making. This is all done by paperclip, hairpin, and the tip of a mechanical pencil. Enjoy!
