I had this idea for a manicure this weekend and I actually never finished it. Well actually, the reason is because I wasn't happy with the first one. But I figured I would show them both to you here today.
The first one is a nameless purple that I have for the upcoming base and top coat release. I wanted a basic color to go with my "manicure kit". Most of the time when I see a manicure kit, it comes with french manicure colors or red polish. I wanted something that was basic but a twist on the normal classic. Here it looks like pure purple, but that's because I tool the picture with my phone camera. In real life it is a few shades darker than this. I put that color on all my nails and then I added a purple powderized glitter on the other fingers and a jewel accent on the index. I hated the accent I added, and came up with another design idea, which I thought I would just redo the index finger with the new design, but that didn't happen either. lol
Instead I decided that I would do the same manicure in pink. The glitter is purple, pink and gold glitter all mixed together. I put Devious Nature on all my nails and then added the glitter to all my fingers except my index finger. I really liked how it looked like this. Instead of glitter on an accent finger, I left one finger "undone" so to speak. This manicure garnered a lot of attention over the weekend. I may have to do this one more often.
My friends really loved the glitter and want to see it as a future color for Cult Nails. I'll have to see where I can work it in. I wasn't thinking of adding this one in, but if my friends want it, I just may have to listen. After all I made Cruisin' Nude for a ladies cruise last year and my friends insisted I make it part of the line and it was one of the first colors to sell out.
Right now this is in a clear base, I wonder if I can put it in a jelly pink polish instead. Hmm, maybe I can make it a little better. Let's see what I can come up with.
