I got a little busy with Real Life (what's that?) and totally forgot about this challenge! I don't like bailing, though, so I've doubled up on some of the posts to make sure I finish before month's end.
That's right - you get two, TWO posts today. Lucky you.
The first challenge mani today is "First Frost". So, I went looking for something green - because here in Florida, everything is still green when/if we get a frosty morning.
Imagine my surprise to find that this glitter turned green! I don't even know who made this Indie, but I remember it used to be a pretty good dupe for OPI Absolutely Alice...which is blue. This is what a bleeding glitter looks like - all the formerly blue glitter is now silver, and the base, which used to be clear, is now a blue/green.
Luckily, I still like it, and it seemed perfect for today's mani. But I'm kinda bummed that it's no longer Alice-like.
I am absolutely loving this OPI Ski Slope Sweetie from the Mariah Carey holiday collection. It's iridescent, with a gold shift. The gold becomes opaque at times, and sometimes it just frosts whatever color is underneath. Very unique!
Even though the OPI makes the mani look 'frosted,' I wanted to add a little more frost and texture. So, I took a bottle of glitter and dusted parts of my nails with it. The glitter catches the light like ice would, and it gave the mani a 3-D textured effect, like sugar crystals on top!
This angle makes it a little easier to see the 'frost'.
Do you know who created that Indie? Would you be upset that it changed so dramatically?
Don't forget - there's another #FallingForNailArt today!
