Masquerade Nails

masquerade_only_gold_for_me

No, I don’t have plans to go to a masquerade ball.  But if I did- these would be the nails to wear!  I did a halfmoon design using this lovely maroon polish called Masquerade Ball by Confetti.  I love this polish because it sorta reminds me of German-icure by OPI (which I don’t own so I’m happy to have this quasi-dupe!)  I left my nail bare under the halfmoon to get this cute ‘peekaboo’ look.  Peekaboo- here’s a little bit of skin!  In a way, it kinda reminds me of masquerades… where you only get a tiny peek of what the person looks like under their mask 🙂

To give the mani some more party-appeal I added some Sephora by OPI Only Gold For Me glitter topcoat. I haven’t tried this gold over a dark color before.  I think it looks lush!  Then I added a few gold studs to top it off.  For my accent finger I dug some of my gold glitter out of the sephora bottle and stuck them on with a dotting tool (using my DIY glequin technique).  I really like the accent nail with it’s extra flash of skin !

Check back to my blog later today!  Brijit and Eeeek and I will be posting all the details of our July nail art challenge!  We have pics of the prizes and you’ll find out the fun themes for all 31 days!   In case you are wondering about the prizes— prize winners will be selected at random.  We are not judgey!  But the more days you participate in July, the better your chance of winning the rafflecopter. I really hope we are able to gather some bloggers from other platforms too.  The more, the merrier!  The three of us are so excited and we hope you join our challenge.  We have been working on this for months and the anticipation is killing us!!  I’m so ready for it to be July.  I can’t wait for the nail art extravaganza to begin!  Stay tuned for all the deets!!

    • Thanks! I couldnt remember if it looked like germanicure or oktoberfest so I did a google search. Your blog came up in the search results. Thanks for the good reference material! LOL

  2. Such a lovely nail art!! I do hope that I’ll be able to create that kind of art. HA HA. I’ve read a lot of tips on how to create some of it, but I keep on failing. HA HA. Guess, I’m really not into art. Lucky you, though!! Love it so much! Unique!
