Nail Potions and Pearls
Every time I think I have a favorite nail polish color, I get a new one. Lately, I have been obsessed with bluish/steely grey polishes. So, of course I was happy about Kunimitsu by Nail Potions Russian Blue.
I should have mixed it a little better to get more of the gold glitters, but otherwise, I couldn't be happier. I love the light blue shimmer, and the formula was great.
I wanted to play off of the gold glitter, so I picked this nail art, inspired by one done by A Thousand Nails.
I used Scotch tape to get a nice, clean line, and painted the stripe with SOPI Charge It! I like that this gold isn't a metallic chrome, and you can see some of the swirls of pigment. It has a kind of molten effect.
For a little 3-D detail.... and something that ended up reminding me a little bit of a Dalek... I added some half-pearls in a dark blue.

If you'd like more information about Nail Potions, you can find her on Facebook and on her Etsy shop. I wish I could remember where I bought the pearls.. but you can find similar things on Born Pretty Store, Dollar Nail Art, or KKCenterHK, among other places.
