My manicure today reminds me of treasure found in a deep sea cave. What kind of wonders would one encounter? The glinting of diaphanous fish scales, ocean worn coins, deep water plants aglow in the blackened green waters...perhaps the curl of a mermaid's tail?
I began with Hard Candy Envy as the shimmering green base. I used an Art Club striper in Limeade to define a Funky French. Then, I layered the glittering wonderland that is Break Up over two thirds of my nail.
The sun was very playful late this afternoon. In a short period, the lighting ranged from blaring brightness to a diffuse glow. I captured my nails under all the different lights available. I was really intrigued how the hex glitter in Break Up altered under varying conditions. I can't decide which I favor most. Each has it's charm.
I was able to achieve a nicely arched smile line with the Art Club striper. It's easier to see the look in the photo above.
I created another look with Envy in January. Some of you may remember my green faery manicure. This polish is versatile and works well as a base for design ideas. It's easy to apply and opaque in two coats. Perfect!
Break Up is a well behaved hex glitter. There is no fishing for glitter pieces with this polish! The formula is packed with tiny silver sparkles and large hexagons that glint orange, gold or green at different angles. It's a fascinating polish!
