Shimmery, Pointy Midnight Blue
I'm continuing with this month's challenge - my favorite color - with some more midnight blue goodness.
But first, I start with a light blue - SpaRitual Energy - a smooth, light robin's egg blue. I love SpaRitual polishes. I love the cap, too. Nice, soft, rubbery, and easy to use.
I saw this cool nail art in an ad for Jin Soon polish. I wanted to try to recreate it.. kinda. I wish I had better (and more) pictures, but my memory card got corrupted.
I used tape and Sally Hansens Salon Nightwatch, a gorgeous midnight blue creme. This probably would have been easier if I'd done the dark blue first and then taped that off and put the light blue on top... but I wasn't sure the light blue was opaque enough. Live and learn.
I just got some of these cool CND effects toppers, and wanted to try this look with CND Ice Blue Shimmer. I love Nightwatch on its own, too, but it totally changes with the shimmer!

Do you like adding effects like a shimmer?
