Nail Challenge Collaborative - Purple Funky Untrieds
This month's NCC challenge is 'Untrieds'. Well, that's the majority of what I do these days, so I'm happy with this theme! I have a small, itty-bitty, teeny-tiny addiction to polish, and I always have a few hanging around that need some love.
Today's nail art was inspired from The Nail Boss Instagram. It's a simple look that I just fell in love with. I started with Sinful Colors Who's The Gloss, a grey creme with a heavy purple shimmer, from the Sinful Shine line. This polish immediately went into my top 10-ish list. Love.
I free-handed a half-moon on top with Sheswai Totally, a red-violet creme. I know it's completely superficial, but I really like the wood-grain caps. Very au-naturel for a polish.
The Nail Boss did this art on an almond-shaped nail, and it looked even better... but I gotta work with what I got. I applied Finger Paints Winter Chill, a black glitter texture on the tips.
I actually didn't realize it *was* a texture when I was doing this. It's hard to tell a texture from the bottle. Well, I can't tell just by looking at the bottle.
I tried to keep the bow shape in the center by rounding the application of the glitter. Isn't it cool with topcoat? I love the glitter tip.

I love that it's so simple, but it's a little twist on the traditional half-moon, or even a traditional French tip! Do you have a favorite little twist you've done to change a more traditional nail art?
