Hi Guys and welcome back to my Nail-venture :)
I really enjoy the days where my daughter and I can sit and just play with all of my polish. It is one of my favorite things to do with her since she is just a mini me. Today I have 2 fun Manis to share. Mine and then hers.
Is there anything better then a Matte Black w Silver Zebra print? A MATTE BLACK W SILVER ZEBRA PRINT WITH FUSCSIA GLITTER OF COURSE! In my opinion glitter just makes every thing better and you just really can't have enough. I love loud and fun designs. The louder and more colorful the better. I have come to the conclusion that I am addicted to pink. I just love it. It is my go to color.
To me this mani was just fun and I had a great time doing it. I started out with my base coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather. I love this black. I can't say that there is a China Glaze color that I have gotten and not liked as of yet. This is one coat and I coverage was good with just the one.
I wanted the zebra print that I was planning on doing to stand out so next I added a coat of NYC Matte Me Crazy. Love this polish and for being only like .98 who can beat that.. I am all about finding cheap polish that I really like. This is the Liquid Leather under a coat of Matte Me Crazy.
I don't know what I was thinking but I completely forgot to take a picture of the next step by itself. I took Stripe Rite Silver and added a zebra print over the inside half of the nail. The Silver on the matte Black just looks awesome. Next, on the outside half of the nail I added Milani Jewel FX Fuchsia.
Well I was real happy with how these turned out. They are just shiny and sparkle in the light. I added a top coat over just the glitter half so that it would not chip off. (If you add a clear over the matte it takes away the matte finish just a little note in case you didn't know that)
The next mani we did was just so cute I couldn't pass it up. I saw this idea on one of the blogs I read regularly however since I read so many I just can't put my finger on where I saw the picture. Once again I started off with China Glaze Liquid Leather.
Next I used the Stripe Rite Silver to make a trail. I guess it looked like the top half of a crescent moon would be how I could describe it.
Then to make it look more like a star trail we covered the Silver with ..... Can you guess?? YEP GLITTER !!! Pure Ice Cheatin. I just added this over the silver to give the silver a little umph I guess.
I added a top coat of Cina Top Coat and Bonder which I then added a Cina purple star embellishment.
Sealed the star embellishment on with another coat of Cina Top Coat and Bonder. I just thought this was a fun little girl mani. What little girl doesn't like shooting starts. Purple Shooting starts at that.
SO this is how my daughter and I spend a nice little bit of time together. If by chance you have seen the original poster on this shooting star mani please drop me a line I would love to give them credit for such a cute idea.
Well that is gonna wrap it up for tonight. I have had my first request for a specific mani so I am going to try and oblige.
See you back for my next nail-venture and
