Day Nine Ciate Mini Mani Manor: Prima Ballerina

Tuesday, 9 December 2014

Ooooh my gosh loves, today I have metamorphosised into a prima ballerina!! I am sooooo in love with this pink holo loose glitter, it's like soul food and I want to bathe in it lol! Rather than the usual simple glitter gradient, I decided I would throw some tape into the mix as well for a change... I so enjoyed sprinkling this pretty goodness everywhere...


The message today reads "Life does not have to perfect to be beautiful"... Well of course! Anyone on the right planet knows that the beauty in life is found within those imperfections, you can't make a rainbow without a little rain right?!... I fear there are many aliens amongst us though hahaha!


First of all, three coats of Barry M Blue Moon for a base. Then I placed three pieces of striping tape on each nail and pressed down firmly. Topcoated with Color Club and then as quick as possible, sprinkled on the super sparkly stuff patting into place where necessary. I waited a couple of minutes for it to 'set' and then brushed of the excess glitter and removed the tape... et voila!

I flirted with the idea of popping another topcoat over the whole thing, it would have looked beaut! But I really couldn't sacrifice a topcoat to do it because you just know, however much you float that topcoat on, some sparkly little buggers will manage to cling on to that brush!
