Creative musings in bright colors

Ice Leaves

Blue and shiny! I really like this manicure, its rather different than what I usually go for! This is another that has been sitting in the vaults. I have at lest 6 back-logged blue manis, but this is probably my favorite so I am showing it now (the others can wait…or I can try and stick them in for other days later in the challenge).


This design was inspired by Urban Nail Art, you can find her initial design (for which she used non-polish, go figure!) on instagram. Also, this is a great example of make your watermark readable…one of my readers figured out who did the initial design because I couldn’t read the watermark to track it down! It’s also a sad example of why pinterest can be terrible.


I used too many blues to list, so I won’t bother. Suffice to say there was lots of sponging involved in this! Once the blues were done, I outlined the veins with dark blue and then silver holographic polish.


This took longer than expected, mostly due to all of the sponging of blues that I did to set the tone for the nail art. The dark blue and silvery holo just made everything better!


Hope you enjoyed! Purple Day tomorrow is also gonna be awesome…mostly cause of the polish and not the design.

  1. Two of my favourite nail polish words – blue and shiny. Add holo and ya got me baby 😃

  2. Anything with blue and holo wins! 🙂
    Also the original you linked to is by Urban Nail Art (who is on Instagram) if that helps, though it is hard to read that watermark.
