31 Day Challenge - Day 5 Blue Nails

Day 5 of the 31 Day Challenge and I have toned down the colours for today's mani.

More details and a picture of my 'Cinderella hand' after the jump.

This look was inspired by an Arcadia Nails tutorial on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQjrBfA3mOw&feature=c4-overview&list=UUoMYvfLxUfajoBTLm-nvlAw

The base is two coats of Model's Own Blueberry Muffin.  This is a scented polish, a fact I totally forgot until after this was finished and I had to figure out where the perfume smell was coming from.  Even under another polish, acrylic paint and two lots of top coat the scent lasted for the three days I wore this mani.  The blueberry muffin scent wasn't unpleasant and I love this colour so it is one I will wear again.  

To add a bit of a gradient and sparkle I painted Model's Own Indian Ocean over the tips of my nails.  Over this I added a coat of Nina Super Dry Top Coat to give a smooth base to paint on.  The detail on each nail was painted with white FolkArt acrylic paint and a very fine nail art brush.  I applied another coat of Nina Super Dry Top Coat to seal everything in and make the glitter sparkle.
