Pinky Glitter French Manicure

Hello nail lovers!  Today is French Manicure with a Twist Day day 14 of the Nail Art Challenge.  If the idea is to change up the traditional french manicure – I can definitely do that.  How about some pink glitter?  Yes, please!

I taped my tips off using some invisible/ scotch tape.  Then applied one coat of Zoya Ali.  That polish is great because I really only needed one coat to make my tips hot pink.  Then I slowly removed my scotch tape and applied a coat of glitter over top.  This Sinful Colors glitter is called Pinky Glitter – isn’t it cute?

Summery Pink Panels

Today is PINK  DAY as part of the 30 Day Nail Challenge.  I created a nail art design I’ll call pink panels using only a dotting tool .  I started with two coats of Orly Kiss The Bride– which is pretty watery and streaky.  If I was wearing Kiss the Bride on it’s own then I would definitely have needed three coats.  Then I selected the following three pink polishes for my panels/squares:

Zoya Ali

China Glaze Dance Baby

I used my smallest dotting tool to shape the squares.  I got pretty good control and clean corners from using that tool-  I’m sure I woulda muffed it up if I used a paintbrush!  This design was pretty easy to do, but a little time consuming.  I’d say the squares took me about an hour from start to finish.  I like the outcome and how the Zoya Ali looks like so bright against the other pinks!  I didn’t realize how neon Ali is- I will definitely be wearing it this summer!

Now I’m inspired to try this look with green polishes – I bet it would look like a tortoise shell 🙂
