Hey y'all! Whenever I am lacking inspiration for nail art, I tend to grab colors that will compliment a glitter polish. Today's post was inspired by Lacquerhead Polish Save The Bows.
On my pinky I started with Chanel Black Satin. I dotted white dots first with a dotting tool and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Then I dotted on top of the white with colored dots so they would stand out against the black.
My ring finger is a gradient of the lime, orange, and blue colors listed above and two small black accent rhinestones.
For my middle finger, I just used the polish brush from the bottle to paint thick stripes of color and placed a few random pieces of striping tape. After covering the whole nail with Number One Nemesis, I peeled back the tape and was left with a cool laser look.
My pointer is the glitter that inspired the color palate over two coats of Chanel Black Satin.
On my thumb I started with NON . Then, I thought it would look cool matted with some shiny stripes, so I attempted that with some striping tape... it was a fail! The contrast between the matte and gloss was not evident enough and looked wonky. However, when I went back over it with topcoat, it made a pretty cool effect! I added some colored rhinestones to tie in the look.
I love getting inspired by glitter polishes because they force me to broaden my horizon and use colors that I may not have been drawn to initially.
I'm pretty happy with how this came out, it was simple and fun to do! Do you ever have a tough time reaching for certain colors? Have a wonderful day! ♥
