Press Sample Purchased by Me
Morning Friends! I hope you all had a great weekend and aren't working too hard today. I have my entry to Nail's by Kayla Shevonne's Indie Nail Art Contest to share with you today!
The whole idea behind the contest was to use indie polishes to create something and really make indie polises shine. I think my indie polishes are the stars of my collection so I went with that theme while I was brainstorming what to do.
One of the first indie polishes that I ever purchased was The Hungry Asian Sneeze Breeze and it is still one of my most beloved indies. I love this indie so much I went with this as my first indie pick. Since this is an awesome black and blue matte glitter mix I picked out other blue stars from my collection, Girly Bits Denim Diva because I love this dusty shade of blue, and Princess Polish Blueberry Jam because who doesn't love a blue holo! I picked out Cult Nails Tempest the perfect white creme and Cult Nails Fetish to round out my selection of polishes and then got to work.
On my index I started with two coats of Girly Bits Denim Diva and sponged on Princess Polish Blueberry Jam to create the holo gradient tip. Then since my theme was the stars of my indie collection I freehanded on a star in Cult Nails Tempest near my cuticle. On my middle nail I did 3 coats of my favourite The Hungry Asian Sneeze Breeze then added a coat of Seche Vite and black and clear rhinestones to add a little something extra. On my ring nail I started with 3 coats of Princess Polish Blueberry Jam then after that was dry added striping tape and then a coat of Cult Nails Fetish. I didn't top coat the nail to preserve Fetish's matte texture.
On my pinky I started with Cult Nails Tempest and then did a rough outline of a star with Fetish. I sponged on Sneeze Breeze near the tip and then reoutlined the star in Fetish. I also left this without top coat because I loved the mix of the matte glitter and matte black star. On my thumb I used Tempest and then wrote indie in Fetish and sponged on some more Sneeze Breeze and left this without top coat as well.
I absolutely love indie polishes and I'm super excited about this totally indie look that I came up with!
Indie's will always be the stars of my collection and I hope that this showed through in this manicure! :)
I had a lot of fun with this one and am really glad I decided to enter Kayla's contest! If you want to create an indie themed manicure to enter you have until April 30th and can do so here.
Hope you're all having a great Monday!
