Glitter Blizzard! and some other fun

This mani was totally inspired by Anita at splashofserendipity.blogspot.com. She does some amazing nail work and has gorgeous nails to boot, hahaha! Thank-you for the fabulous idea, Anita!

Started this late at night and needed a simple, quick but pretty mani, since I have a reputation to keep up at work! But first you get to see some nail porn...NAKED NAILS! The staining finally grew out and they look pretty darn good to me...
My nails are translucent in some places, because I had been working in the kitchen, cooking and doing dishes, so afterwards I slathered them with argan oil and let it soak in...
Ok, on to the easy-peasy mani:

On clear gel nails, I sponged NYC french mani white starting at the tips and making a gradient...
Over the top of that, one coat of Wet N Wild Hallucinate. Over the top of that, one coat of Pure Ice Heartbreaker. Sorry for the blurry pictures, but I was trying to get the PI polish to show up like it does in real life...




OK, I really like how simple and effective this look is. The green and blue flashes were much more noticeable in person. Gorgeous and a bit flashy without being TOO flashy...I know...not like me right?!
On to some craft/homemade fun!
My compromise to actually giving away my Christmas ideas if the kids look at this post, is...

Experiment number one.......

Hmmm, not dark enough and a bit too soft, back to the drawing board for more Brown Iron Oxide and a bit more beeswax.... E-mail me if you need help or want to know what these are going to be hahaha!

Wow, these look great! It's so exciting to know that I've influenced another blogger, I am seriously flattered, thank you!

You deserve it girl! I love this look and I want to try it with some sheer or duochrome polishes...putting the pure ice polish over the top really gave a cool effect, too. Thank-you!

I love how delicate yet not-boring this mani is!
