Mangled Spider? Nailed it!


Hello, Fireflies!

I absolutely love the gorgeous acrylic designs on Bianca Fredrich's Facebook page, and I picked one to inspire me for today's Tri-polish Challenge.  Unfortunately, it didn't come out so much like I wanted, and looks more like I mangled a spider and then drowned it in glitter.


I suppose there are worst ways to go.

I started this look with Sally Hansen Salon I Lilac You.  Yes, I Lilac You very much!

Orly Sparkling Garbage is still my 'if I had to pick one polish to take to a desert island' polish.  I love it, and it goes with so many things.  It's just stunning.  These pictures don't do it justice.


Here's where the malfunction starts.  First of all, there's just not enough contrast with the silver.


Second of all..


Yeah, Jackie doesn't know what to make of it, either.

Have you ever had a Jackie Chan makeup moment?

    1. Cinnamon. LOL. What *do* you call a stripper spider? And, how many poles would you think she'd use?

    1. Does the glitter rule hold for makeup, too? Slap a little on, and everything looks better? lol

  9. Bahahahahahaha, you seriously crack me up. All of it. But I do think before you did the whirly bits it was so awesome. And Sparkling Garbage is one of my all time favourites as well. SOOOO pretty.

    1. I had trouble deciding if it was a squashed spider or mangled octopus. I didn't have an octopus/glitter meme.

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
