Happy Manicure Monday - this month the Canadian Beauty Bloggers group is focusing on a Purple theme!
I decided some purple nails would fit right it! And, I tried a new sponge mani technique:
Here is a look at the products I used for this week's nails:
Formula X nail cleanser, base coat and top coat
Ceramic Glaze polish in Petal Pusher (medium purple)
Essie polish in Under The Twilight (dark purple)
Essie polish in Go Ginza (light purple)
not pictured - makeup sponge ripped up
To do this manicure, I started with nail cleanser and base coat. I followed with 2 coats of the lightest purple polish - let this dry very well!
Then start with ripped up pieces of a makeup sponge:
I painted a light amount of polish on the sponge and dabbed in over the nail. I started with the medium purple, followed with the dark purple and a light coat of the light purple to tie it all together. (I used different pieces of sponge for each colour!)
While this isn't exactly how I thought my nails would turn out, I like the look! Here is a close up:
Happy Monday everyone!
