Carpe Noctem Purple Patchwork


Hello, Fireflies!

Can every month be geometric manis month?  I love all the different interpretations of this theme.  I found this nail art on Chickettes that I thought was so much fun, and decided to do my own version with some Carpe Noctem Cosmetics polishes.

Carpe Noctem Sapphire Abyss made my camera cry.  I know it looks like I covered my camera lens in Vaseline, a la Cybill Shepherd's Moonlighting days (Google it, young'uns!) but I didn't.  It's just so soft and shiny; it's so beautiful.

I applied some tape strips and did some freehand to make this patchwork of purples.  The light, orchid color is Carpe Noctem I'm A BIG F*cking Deal and the eggplant is Carpe Noctem Interstellar Towel.

I love how the white dots just make the whole mani look sharper and more defined. Except for that whole Vaseline thing.  Maybe it's time for a new camera?


I love how they're all purple, but so different!

Kinda makes me want to do an eyeshadow look with colors like these.  Would you?

    1. Don't you sometimes wish life had a Vaseline filter? lol. She was so pretty and totally didn't need that filter, but it sure was a part of that character.
