Week 14: Striped Mani

Sunlight

I didn't want some thing mellow for this weeks' challenge of a striped mani. I wanted something sparkly as I have been sick and it's been nasty, extremely windy and rainy for the last several days. Basically I needed a pick me up. So here it is...Glitter + skittles = Glittles! I challenge to say Glittles without cracking a smile! Seriously!! Here's my Glittles striped mani. ;)


Light Box


For this I used one good coat of Wet n Wild Black Creme added 3 stripes with some striping tape, then used 2-3 quick coats of Love and Beauty Turquoise (thumb), Nubar Sky Sparkle (index), Nubar Violet Sparkle (middle), Milani Purple Gleam (ring), and Nubar Star Sparkle (pinky) and quickly removed the tape. Added two coats of Seche Vite to smooth out the stripes and now I can't stop staring at them!

 So it worked, this Glittles mani totally picked up my mood but I wish it hadn't turned out so thick! It was raining earlier when I did this mani, so I was super bummed about not getting photos of this in the sun. Then from down the hall I hear my oldest yell, "Mom, grab your camera and go take your pictures...sun's out!" We'll make a nail blogger outta her yet! ;) If you're wondering why there is a white backdrop for these pics too, it's our minivan. LOL!

Sadly, not even those pics in the sun do justice to the sparkle going down on my nails right now. Don't forget to check out my fellow challengers listed below! Much Love, The Dragon Lady

  7. Glad you all liked this. I think next time I will add more stripes and swap in a green glitter for the silver holo (it just didn't seem to fit for me).
