It’s DIAMOND week for the Nail Art Ideas Linkup. This theme makes me think of Marilyn Monroe’s “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!” and also “Material Girl” by Madonna. Remember their hot pink dresses with the big bow? And how they were dripping with diamonds? That’s the inspiration for my manicure today!
I’m wearing two coats of my favorite hot pink polish- Zoya Ali. It’s so hot and summery… when I applied it the other day I was actually screaming HOT DAMN! Because I love it so much. Does anyone else get super excited by polishes like me? So much so that you run around the house waving your hands around hooting and hollering? Please tell me you do that too.
Now that we’ve established that Zoya Ali is a good base color for me…. then I applied a sheer pink holo over some of those nails. Bobbie brand Margarita (which I swatched the other day) needed four coats, so I assumed it’s sheerness would be a good topper for Ali to allow the hot pink to shine through, yet still add a touch of holo sparkle to it. I didn’t apply that holo to my middle or thumb fingers, just because. And on my middle finger I painted a bow just like on Madonna’s and Marilyn’s dresses. I used a white and a black striper along with thatleanne’s tutorial to do my bow nail art. And the funny thing is, I just realized she used Zoya Ali in her tutorial post too! What are the chances of that? Such a strange coincidence!
Lastly, I added some diamond-looking bling on a couple of my fingers. I love this manicure!
