This may be the Pantone year of Radiant Orchid, but this season is all about coral. I love it in so many different variations - the electric, soft, more peachy, more pink - all of a sudden, I can't get enough.
This is Ulta Professional Cabana Coral, an electric reddish-coral. This is going to be a pedicure fave for me this summer, I'm sure!
I did a gradient with Maybelline Gilded Rose, a rosy gold shimmer with glitter. Shouldn't that be a gilded lily, as in 'don't gild the lily,' not a rose? People and their mixing of metaphors. Bah.
I'm not a crafty person, but somehow I decided that I wanted to make my own acrylic doodads for my nails. I bought some acrylic powder, pigments, the monomer, and some molds, and I used some glitter I already had, and mixed up these blue glittery butterflies, and what I hoped looked like a hot air balloon.
Bottle shot: Maybelline Gilded Rose, and Ulta Cabana Coral.
I don't know why, but my latest fascination with nail art is to stick things on my nails. I can't keep them on, because I pick everything off, but I love it. I'm finding all kinds of cool 3-D stuff on eBay, and I have a bunch of these molds I'm going to play with.
What do you think about 3-D nail art?
