Hello polished world! How are you all doing today? It's Sunday, which means the weekend is almost over....yet again. I would say that I wish I had another day this weekend to relax, but I pretty much spent 90% of my Saturday lounging around. It was by far the laziest I have been in a long time, and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
Summer is coming to a close, and it's a perfect time for me to share this perfect summer manicure with you all. A week ago or so I decided to re-create Chalkboard Nails firefly nail art! It was such an awesome manicure that I fell in love with when I first saw it, but I never had the guts to actually attempt it. Finally the day came and I gathered up all my courage and re-created her awesome manicure.
Let's take a look!
Normally this is where I tell you what colors I used to create the look, but I honestly cannot remember! I think the purple is NYC New York Color Jacaranda Flower, but for the pink and coral I used for the gradient, I cannot remember to save my life. This is why I need to write down the colors as soon as I finish my manicures. Maybe draft the post up right then and there? That would be the smart thing.
Anyways, to get the look, I started off with a base of white polish. When dried, I went through and added my gradient. I then created the grass using my black striper. I then added the fireflies glowing halos using acrylic paint mixed with water. I then went through ad added the yellow lil fireflies.
I added a quick dry shiny top coat, then went back over it with a matte. I find that if I were to just add a matte top coat, the art ends up smudging.
What do you think? Like this manicure? I think Sarah's is a million times better.
Until next time, <3.
