Oh man, I remember this mani! Not just because it was so striking but also because I’ve been growing my nails out since this mani – I had three really bad (down to the quick!) breaks on my swatching hand and my fingers just hurt. :/

This mani is one of those that I curse my apparent inability to take a good picture of a multichrome polish, in this case BootylishSlick. In real life, this mani was so damn gorgeous, but I could only capture a fraction of that beauty on camera. Continue reading

Anyway…I’ve shown you swatches of the newest P.O.P Polishes and yesterday you saw two nail art manicures with a few of those new polishes. I really wanted to do something interesting with the blacklight reactive top coat from P.O.P Polish besides using it for its intended purpose. I decided to created swirled decals. I looked around and found some polishes that looked nice together, which included a magnetic and a mainstream blacklight reactive polish.

First up is this dry brush/gradient with FrankenSlick and Jack O Lantern. Doesn’t this look like copper that has a patina?

For this mani, I started with a base of Scared Slick and created a sponged gradient with it and Eye of Newt. It turned out incredible!

I have one more mani to show you but you will have to wait until tomorrow! πŸ˜€ It will be worth it, I promise. πŸ˜› Hint: it has to do with the Radioactive Glass that is blacklight reactive.

I’d just give away my brushes when they got dirty and buy new ones. Wasteful, yes. But my goodness do I hate to wash my brushes!
