Today’s prompt was “inspired by nails you love” so I went with something I had been meaning to try, an awesome cut-out mani by Manicurator.
My nail beds are still bit wonky, so instead of doing a slightly shimmer over nude nails, I started with a yellowish-nude holo base and placed cut up pieces of creme polish over it.
Realistically, I should have cut my creme polishes into thinner and tinier pieces! Oops. I made them by painting my stamper with polish, removing it when it was dry, and then cutting the polish into strips and shapes.
~ Nude holo: SV – Gilded Lemon Drops
~ Pink: Sinful Colors – Pink Forever
~ Coral: L’oreal – Orange You Jealous?
~ Orange: Wet n’ Wild – Sunny Side Up
~ Yellow: WOW – #301
~ Green: Essie – The More The Merrier
~ Blue: Zoya – Rocky
~ Purple: L’oreal – Royalty Reinvented
~ White/blue glitter: WOW – #317
~ Pink glitter: Paint Shop Polish – Caroline
They key to this mani really is the glitter topper…the whole thing looked a little odd without the teal, white, and pink glitter! To be fair, I added the pink glitter piece-by-piece because the base for that polish has now been stained pink (not to mention is very thick).
LAST DAY OF THE CHALLENGE! I can’t believe I actually kept up with this! I’ll be posting a review of all the manis I did tomorrow, and regular posts will resume next Monday. Next week will probably be a week of fails from this challenge (although I only really have 3 of them). Enjoy!! And thanks for sticking with me 😀
