I hope you enjoyed Black Friday like I did! whew! I'm exhausted and broke, and I didn't even leave the house. The Interwebs are a fine, fine invention!
Today's mani was inspired by one done by my friend Stephanie at A Little Polish. When I saw it, I knew I had to do something similar. Her manis are sooo beautiful, though!
I started with China Glaze Keep Calm..Paint On, a lovely mint green creme with a subtle shimmer.
After the base coat was *completely* dry, I used a piece of clear tape to mark off a straight 'half-moon' and then painted the rest with Mentality Kindness, a beautiful teal-green holo with a duochrome shift to purple.
Then, I placed a small rhinestone in the center of each nail, and hex glitters on either side. I don't know how people do those manis with whole nails - or whole hands - of glitter placed one by one. I was tired after doing just one line on both hands.
I felt so fancy-shmancy with this mani. Something about all those sparklies.
Look, Ma, both hands!
Bottle shot: China Glaze Keep Calm..Paint On, Mentality Kindness, rhinestones from Cult Nails, and glitter.
Have you done a mani with individually placed glitters? Do you think it's worth the effort? This one was totally worth it for me - I loved it.
