31 Day Challenge - Day 17: A New Technique
Wow, what a crazy week. Work has been insane. I am pretty sure I have worked a minimum of 130 hours in the last two weeks. This is why I haven't been posting. I was so distraught about this mani. I really wanted to try the water spotted mani or a fan brush mani. I was unable to do either of these due to the fact that I didn't own a fan brush and I didn't want to spend so much time doing the spotted mani. I have seen a few videos on how to do some sugar spun manicures and wasn't really too keen on doing it, but I was sitting here watching tv and I figured what could it hurt to try it out. I used a quick drying white and was really pleased with how easy it was to do this. I finally got the hang of this once I hit the pointer finger. You will be able to tell in the pictures. The blobs of polish are where I touched the dotting tool to the nail accidentally.
Base coat: Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Base color: Winter Wonder from Sinful Colors - 2 coats
White: White on the Spot from Milani
Top coat: Seche Vite
I am including these next two pictures so that you can see more of the shimmer in this beautiful polish. I will need to wear Winter Wonder when I have more sun.
