This week's challenge (ending today) is GLITTER! My neck was junk this weekend, so I decided to focus on my nails instead:
For this look I used 1 coat of Cult Nails (CN) In a Trance, topped with a coat of CN Toxic Seaweed--an awesome sea-green jelly with emerald green microglitter (seems to have a bit of gold flash to it in the sun) and a rather fine, fire-gold iridescent flake. I also used CN's base & top coats--they're not kidding when they call the top coat "Wicked Fast"--it dried in less time than it took for me to put all the caps back on my polish bottles!
In A Trance is a gold-olive shade and made the overall look more of a warm-toned green than the cool green of Toxic Seaweed. Pretty awesome, I can't quit looking at it at different angles XD.
I will say this for Cult Nails--their polishes come in a variety of very pretty shades and finishes for such a new company, and although their creme/shimmer polishes are taking some skill-building for me (a newbie, so please excuse the messy cuticles >_<) to apply evenly, the jellies are practically foolproof. I want them all ;)
What's your favorite way to use glitter?
Me ke aloha,
3/9/2012 ETA--I wasn't kidding when I told folks this was my "mani of the week;" I'm generally too laid back about my nails (and busy with RL stuffs) to switch polish every day...or even every couple of days! I have to say I'm impressed with how this one wore, my skills being pretty novice level and all; I still kept ogling my nails all week XD. Here's how the nails looked after a solid 5 days of work, hula, and domestic miscellany:
