Morning! Before we get into today's post, I just wanted to remind you all that you can vote once a day in the Tadashi Shoji Nail Art Challenge! My entry is in the middle -- you can read more about it here.
On to the nail art! Today I have a quick and easy look to share with you. This design was actually a "reject" for the delicate print day of the 31 Day Challenge. I did like the way this turned out but it didn't seem quite right for the challenge, so I did my dragonfly print instead and saved this manicure for later.
The base color is Cult Nails Charming. Charming is a limited edition shade but is still for sale in the Cult shop! I love the glowy shimmer in this polish; it makes it look so soft and ethereal.
The curved lattices at my cuticles were painted on freehand in Lime Crime Lavendairy. I used my favorite medium length striper brush to paint them... what else?
The loose glitter was purchased on eBay a year or so ago. I painted a stripe of topcoat down the middle of my nail to stick the glitter to, and then picked up and placed the pieces with a dotting tool dipped in water.
The loose glitter in this manicure made it pretty hard to photograph. They didn't look so dark in person... instead, they seemed to always catch the light like in this photo below.
I really love the lattice-half-moon design and definitely intend to try it again in the future with different colors.
Thanks for reading! :)
