Good morning all! I hope that you are having a good Memorial Day weekend if you are in the USA, and a good Monday regardless. Every Memorial Day, my children and I go to lay flowers at my uncle’s grave. His remains were recovered from the Vietnam War and came home a few years ago. It has always been my honor to go visit every year and lay flowers at his grave and pay my respects. At any rate, I do have some nail art to show you today with Girly Bits Cosmetics In One Year and Out the Other, Girly Bits Steely Resolution, Dreamland Lacquer Dragonberry II [Hella Holo Customs polish], and nail gems from Crystal Parade.
I started off with In One Year and Out the Other. This is a pale pink with hot pink specks, golden shimmer, and pink to green UCC flakes. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
I then created a gradient with Steely Resolution and IOYaOtO.
Steely Resolution is a taupe grey holographic polish with pink shimmer and pink/gold/violet UCC flakes.
Using the Delicate Dahlia nail vinyls from Polished Vino, I placed them on each nail then painted over with Dreamland Lacquer Dragonberry II [Hella Holo Customs polish].
It didn’t quite look finished, so I added a nail gem from Crystal Parade’s Mixed Sized AB Jelly pack.
Surprisingly to me, top coat changed how Dragonberry II looked! It went from a deeper violet to a brighter pink. I talked it over with the maker and we think that it’s because it was used over a different brand’s polishes. I’m not worried, I love the polish!
Anyway, I know this is a longer post but I really loved how this turned out. It was definitely eye-catching and I wore it for days! Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
