Hey everyone! I hope the weekend treated you well and you’re ready for the work week. Ours was a busy one and the week is shaping up to be crazy too. Today I have a fun mani to show you with ILNP Spring Bouquet, CrowsToes Nail Color Damned If You Do, nail gems from Crystal Parade, and using Polished Vino decals.
I started off with ILNP Spring Bouquet. This is a silvery holographic polish that has a greenish hue, and a purply shift.
Applying this was tricky. It had more of a clear base than I was expecting, to be honest. So I applied 1 coat, then sponged some on, then applied another coat, then top coat. Which it still ended up feeling rough.
So then I decided to pull out CrowsToes Damned If You Do which OMGosh is amazing. Like…go buy it right now.
Anyway, for application, I applied this over black because on my test thumb (shout out for my thumb doing hard work!), it wasn’t showing up well enough over Spring Bouquet on its own.
This has so many color shifts: blue, teal blue, teal green, green (had so much trouble getting the brilliant green to show up!), reddish, purple, tinge of orange.
I also used straight edge vinyls (not sure where from), and I believe starburst nail vinyls from Polished Vino. I finished off with AB Jelly crystal nail gems from Crystal Parade.
This came out so well and I loved it! Isn’t it nice when a mani just works?
