The theme for today's challenge is Metallic!
Yesterday I got a polish in the mail that was very fitting for the challenge so of course I had to use it right away. And of course I also had to add some glitter and some stamping. Check it out!
Tada! I'm so pleased with how this manicure turned out. I love it!
I wasn't sure where I was going with these nails as I was doing them but they ended up really working.
The base color I used is Essie - Nothing Else Metals. This is a silvery-purple chrome metallic polish from Essie's new Mirror Metallics collection.
I wasn't expecting the new metallics to be anything special but I actually was pleasantly surprised, the formula is really awesome and the finish is very cool. Sooooo reflective. And not streaky or frosty.
I got this polish as a free perk from Klout. I actually might pick up some of the other colors too.
To add some sparkle, I sponged on a bit of Color Club - Sugarplum Fairy, a super-glittery polish from the Beyond The Mistletoe collection.
These two polishes go really well together, right? And I love the added bling from the holo glitter.
Then it was time for stamping. I used Bundle Monster BM-314 and stamped a different piece of the swirly image on each nail. I like how each nail is different but still the same, you know?
I'm totally psyched about these nails. If only I could keep them on longer. But the challenge continues...
What do you think? Successful metallic mani?
