I think this mani was better in my head than it turned out to be... but I still like it! I tried to do a sky near dusk with pink tinged clouds floating along, and each little cloud has a silver (holographic) lining.
I started by layering a LOT of polishes, I mean TONS! In the following picture, there are 8 layers of polish. You can see that I didn't allow the polish to completely dry after each layer and when I applied Seche Vite topcoat, it freaked out! It's all squiggly. I had to wait and come back to this mani the next day and reapply a layer of Seche Vite to smooth it out.
After I got it to smooth out a bit, I used acrylic paints to make the fluffy pink clouds. To the bottom of each cloud I applied a bit of holographic sparkle. I was a little too light handed, you can barely see the holo-y goodness.
Here are the two hands together, and if you look closely, you can see that the underside of the clouds do shine a bit. And actually, now that I look at it from further away, it's kinda pretty like this!
Up close shot where you can see some of the holo.
The bazillion polishes I used in this mani (not counting Nail Envy and Seche Vite!): OPI What's With the Cattitude?, OPI Skull and Glossbones, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Delphinium, Essie Walk Down The Aisle, OPI I Juggle... Men, China Glaze OMG. Whew!
And here is a link to the song I was humming when I wrote this post. :)
