Today I'm bringing to you a play on texture. I wasn't so sure about this look to begin with, but the finishing touches really brought it all together. Check it out!
I almost didn't like this look, until I added the glitter on top. Everything's better with a dash of glitter!
Here's the lineup...
-OPI Ridge Filler Base Coat
-Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City
-Maybelline Color Show in Impeccable Greys
-Maybelline Color Show in Onyx Rush
-Orly Lacquer in Atomic Splash
-Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat
I achieved the streaked look by layering the silver, the grey, and then the black. Once it dried, I took Q-tips soaked in nail polish remover to streak away at the top layers to reveal the colours underneath.
Here's what it looked like without the glitter. It was nice, but it was definitely missing something. After taking the pictures, I was about to take it off and try something else, but then I thought of adding the glitter, and presto! It saved the manicure.
Here are a couple more shots in different lighting...
I've grown to really love this look, and I hope you do to! Did you like it more before I added glitter, or after? I think it added a little something-something. Let me know what you think in the comments, or come chat with me on Twitter!
Thanks much for tuning in to my first nail post on this blog, be sure to stay tuned for what I have in store for the future!
Until next time, stay polished!
