Hello everyone!! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, Mr. Sparkles and I took a trip to Denver this week, and things have been quite hectic preparing for that.
This is a mani I did last week. I had an idea in my head that I wanted to do some nails that looked like scales on a dragon, although I don't think it turned out quite like I wanted. I got some sequins to use from the nail supply store. This was my first try using anything other than polish to do nail art.
Basically what I did was, polished my nails with 2 coats of Zoya Veruschka, plus top coat. I applied the top coat to one nail, then added the sequins to that nail while the top coat was still tacky. After I had sequins placed on each nail, I sealed that with another layer of top coat. I made the black half moon line with a striping polish to add definition to the shape. Finally, I went back and finished with one last coat of Veruschka to keep the matte finish.
While this mani didn't quite turned out how I had hoped, I was still fairly happy with it. I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the matte polish and shiny sequins.
What are some of your must have nail art supplies? Rhinestones? Sequins?
