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.
