Tis the season of cheerful insanity! When I saw this VIDEO from Professional DQ for her Pop Art Christmas Nails yesterday, I knew I wanted to try them!
The line up: L.A. Colors Energy Source, Essie Pure Pearlfection, Klean Color Metallic Green & Metallic Red, L.A. Colors Electricity.
I normally have a swatch of the base color between the line up & the finished mani pics, but my phone decided to go to bed early. So it was a choice of not finishing my nails last night so I could get that shot or finishing them & skipping that pic. I opted for the later & will just tell you what I did. I started with 2 coats of Energy Souce & it really needs 3 for full opacity. I then added 2 coats of Pure Pearlfection. PP is a sheer top coat so the white undies were needed. I then used the large ball of my dotting tool to add the holly berries & my detail brush to add the word using Metallic Red. Next I used the same detail brush with the Metallic green to add the holly leaves. The small ball of my dotting tool & the Electricity were used for the lil polka dots. After everything was dry to the touch, I finished with a coat of Seche Vite & noticed that while the Klean Color polishes didn't exactly bleed, they do seem to have lil halos around some of the elements in those colors.
Thanks for stopping by!
