|I wuv the teensy tiny OPI bottles!! :-D|
|Whoa flash!! Down boy!|
I apologize for the poor photo quality and not terribly great color accuracy. :-/ I really need a better camera if I'm gonna keep doing this!
Chalkboard Nails used a nude for her base color, but since Mi Fantasia has such beautiful iridescent bar glitters, I decided it'd look great over OPI Can't Find My Czechbook. My roommate got me a boxed set of 4 Euro Centrale minis for my bday!! :-D
So, this is two coats of CFMC with my attempt at a a freehand ruffian/gradient using Mi Fantasia, topped off with Seche Vite.
I'm pretty sure I would've had better results using a chunk of a triangular foundation sponge to make the gradient because the dense glitter is sooo hard to put on nicely with the bottle brush. On the other hand, the glitter payload is AWESOME for just painting your nails with solid, glittery goodness! (I did that on my toes)
If you'd like to see the actual Chalkboard nails post where she does several gradient manicures using the glitters from the Selena Gomez collection, you can find that here: http://www.chalkboardnails.com/2012/12/nicole-by-opi-selena-gomez-glitter.html
P.S. I'm SOOO excited; after ruminating for a day, I just placed another order at the SillyLilyPolish Etsy shop (I got Pacific Fantasy & Paint Splatter), so rest assured they will be showcased as soon as I get them!!!!
