If you love nail art and haven’t heard of Robin Moses (robinmosesnailart on Youtube), you’re missing out…big time.
Here’s the original tut.
Lady has madddd skills. Here’s my variation of that.
It’s been awhile since I’ve put up any art!!! My model is my sister-in-law, who has been nicknamed Billy basically from birth. When I saw Robin’s tut I knew Billy would love the bright and dark combination… I would love this on myself but they way children are make this kind of effort impossible. I just love this! 😀 Oh before I forget. The black polish is WnW Black Creme. The rest is acrylic, top coated with Sally Hansen Insta Dri.
So lately I’ve been trying to “fill in the gaps” in my collection. I was surprised to find that I didn’t have a regular gold polish. Glitters yes, but nothing that made my nails look gold plated. This is the closest thing I could find to what I was looking for. I wanted something more yellow toned such as 24k gold. This color is more pale such as 10k. I’m still happy with it, especially since finding a gold polish was hard enough.
The base color is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Golden-I in 2 coats very good formula. The polish is kind of a foil but it isn’t streaky at all and a bit sheer but built up very good. Pretty reflective I think! On the inside of my middle finger you can see a tiny pink reflection.
Rockstar Pink is from the SH Xtreme Wear line also. It has small fuchsia, red and blue glitter and a very fine gold glitter. I can’t remember but it’s most likely 3 coats on the ring finger and just a little bit thinly put on the end of the thumb nail. I was surprised at how well it built up for being a finer glitter. It’s no Milani One Coat Glitter (I’ll be showing that very soon!) but very exceptional!
SH Jewel Overcoat in Multi-Faceted in 2 gloppy coats. I say gloppy because the formula on this does not want to give up those glitters! So beside the obvious black and silver hexagon glitters, there are some beautiful iridescent hexagon glitters in there. You can see a few a bit better on the outside edge of my thumb in this picture. When I first saw this in the store I thought it was silver, black, blue, yellow glitters. Apparently there is more then one type of iridescent glitter. From what I looked at in my bottle there are indigo, orange-green & turquoise-green. Some flash a yellow in the right light but I think that might just be the orange green ones. As for the indigo I twirled that bottle around and around and it seems like it is not as iridescent as the others unless you consider it as clear-indigo. Here is a pretty good picture of the bottle with all it’s goodies.
I’m so glad I found this at Walgreen’s for 2 reasons. First being I’ve been wanting a black glitter. Second being….it’s limited edition!I hadn’t been there in awhile to find out that they had a new display, so I almost missed it. There was a bunch more (so I’m told) but the one I got was the very last and there was only a few other colors left. Actually the only other Jewel OC left was Ring-a-Ding. Here’s a photo from Steph’s Closet of the display. *click link for better view*
I think Let’s dance would have been my second pick. It seems like Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength line is very wedding themed, which you can see from this limited edition display and also in their new core line up. Save The Date is from their core line. I love the colors though, cheesy names and all!
So this is probably the most I’ve typed and put into one post so far, not sure if anyone really reads it but either way I hope you liked them. Snatch up a limited edition while you can! I’m sure their all gone considering where I live we’re the last to see these kinds of things.
Have any thought about all this? I’d love to know!
