Moon Candy Nail Art

Hello, Fireflies!

Yesterday, I showed you a couple of looks with the Revlon Moon Candy polishes, and today, I'm incorporating one into some nail art. Fancy!

I started off with Takko Lacquer Blushing Nude.  Nude, with a hot pink flash - crazy! I love this.  And, I'm not afraid to say it.. I miss Takko's old round bottles.  These types are some of my faves.

I took the deep wine color of Revlon Satellite and painted a curved/diagonal French tip on each nail.  These are some of my fave tips to do - no tape, no muss, no fuss.  I do have to do a little cleanup where I go over the edge of the nail, but I'm working on my aim.

I added some scrolls, a la Robin Moses.  I love her work - I don't know how she comes up with so many great nail art ideas.

Chunky, funky gold mylar flakies! Definitely a job swishing the brush around, pulling up a few flakies, and rolling and dabbing them off the brush - and trying not to get them all over the place!  I love the look, though.

Top coat smooths it all out.. and, smudged my wine color, too! Argh.  Luckily, it seemed to blend in with the pink flash from Blushing Nude.  In Real Life, it wasn't noticeable.  I love how a little bit of bling catches the light when you move.  It's subtle, but eye-catching!

What do you think about adding a little bling-bling to nail art?  Would you rather keep it simple with just one color and the flakies, like in yesterday's post?

  2. I love every Takko Lacquer I've seen, yet I've never ordered. It's always sold out when I go to get it. I have to stalk the site, this one looks beautiful!

    1. Takko's restocks are insane. I've been lucky to get a couple of them at reasonable prices on blog sales, but otherwise, yeah, stalking Takko's twitter or Llarowe for restocks is the only way to get them!

    1. Her restocks can be super crazy, but it can be worth it. Her flakies are amazing.
