Cracked Mirror

My second attempt at the shatter glass trend thats going around! Of course as I write this I just got a package to review from Lady Queen Beauty with the stuff to ACTUALLY make a shattered glass mani…so that will be up at some point too!


This was insanely easy to make, but only lasted about a day. The base is one of the  Sally Hansen mirror metallics that came out last year, but if you add top coat the wonderful mirrored finish goes away. I used normal base coat with this, although I really should have used and aqua base or something. Either way, it was awesomely reflective and lasted 24 hours before starting to peel off.


Now, I knew I had about 24 hours to work with, so this didn’t bother me…but this is not a long-lasting design! All I really did was stamp over the silver and leave it be. Sadly, you can really see all the ridges on my poor nails, although I do think the stamping helps to cover them!


~ Silver: Sally Hansen – Sterling Silver
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Stamps: Bundle Monster – 208, 608


Hope you enjoyed! More sparkly things tomorrow 🙂
