Striped and Glittered Midnight Blue
I've snuck in a few more blue manis lately, but this is the last "official" Fave color mani for this month's challenge. It's been a lot of fun to see how many different types of dark blue polish I have.. and believe me, I have a lot more.
This mani starts with a crelly blue I picked up from Urban Outfitters' Spirit Duo sale. It's called, aptly enough, Midnight. Isss sooo prettty.
I was inspired by this diagonal French tip mani I saw by Bedizzle, and I thought it would be interesting to pair Midnight with a glitter in the same family. This is Orly Macabre Masquerade.
I have a lot of trouble getting striping tape to stay put, so I usually don't use it the way Bedizzle did. Instead, I took a silver nail art striper and delineated between Midnight and the glitter. And... well, I added another stripe, because that's how I roll.
Seems a shame to use so little of the glitter, because it's so pretty. Maybe next time I'll give it at least an accent nail.
Bottle shot: Urban Outfitters Midnight, Orly Macabre Masquerade, and a silver striper.
What's your favorite nail color? How many different bottles of nail polish do you have in that color? Or do you buy backups of your one fave polish?
