Hey there! Nail It! Magazine has posted their latest submission prompts on their site and I have been thinking up ideas and working on manis. Obviously, today’s mani is the result of their matte prompt! I decided to tackle it by using some untried polishes!
This week for #mommysmanimonday we took orders from another member. I got my orders from @amyjeannenails who assigned me to do a glitter gradient. Other than that, I had no specific requirements so I decided to go with black and red since Nail It! magazine was looking for submissions. I absolutely adore the result!
I was so busy doing my swatching posts that I completely forgot to update with my manicures along the way! The prompt for my #mommysmanimonday group a couple of weeks ago was Matte & Shiny. I had big plans for this mani. Huge!
One of my recent finds at 5 Below were some new Fresh Paint polishes labeled as Semi-Matte. I, of course, bought all 4 just to try them out. I’ve really admired some of the matte stamping I have seen by @ineedamani and decided to try the technique out myself!
Last year, I did a green and black manicure using a green duochrome polish. One of the nails had green duochrom dots on a black background and I absolutely loved how the duochrom polish popped against the back. I’d been toying with the idea of hand-painting with colorshifters for a while and went ahead and tried it today!
I posted this mani in my review of the Lucky Lacquer polishes, but wanted to give it its’ own post as well, because I absolutely love how it came out!
