Icy Purple

Hey guys! Today I've got some nails that I did a week or so ago. I wasn't entirely thrilled with the end result and my pictures are not my best work. I had about half an hour before I needed to leave to go curl and figured I could whip up a quick layering manicure with an stamping accent. Wrong! But alas here are my nails!

I used Sephora by OPI Just a Little Dangerous on my nails except my index and ring, which are sporting Milani White On The Spot. I then added a coat of Daring Digits Ice which is an iridescent clear flakie that flashes blue and purple over all my nails except my ring finger. I added the silver square stud at the base of each nail to give it a little more visual interest. I stamped with Bundle Monster 205 and Wet n Wild Black Creme.

Ice plays a lot better over darker colours, as even in real life you couldn't see it over the white base. I would almost describe Daring Digits Ice as being Cult Nails Seductions infant sister. The flakies were similar in my opinion, except Seduction is in a purple base and Ice is completely clear. So maybe not sisters, but cousins...twice removed... lol I'm on a roll today.

I think the idea of these nails were much better in my head than in the final execution. But alas that happens! I almost didn't show these to you, but last night I went to bed without editing any pictures, so I decided to throw this out there are see what you all think!

So what are your thoughts on this!? Fail or did it have some potential?

Hope you're having a wonderful day :)
