When it was time for the Indie Inlinkz FB group
to post their March manis,
only Jenne from Polished Pathology (our intrepid admin)
& I showed up for the party.
So we decided to swap blogs for a day!
Here's what Jenne did for our prompt of Layered Shots...
You might be asking what exactly is a layered shot. Well, it's an alcoholic shot made up of different colored liquors of different densities, so that they 'lay' on top of each other for a unique and fun look. The shot I chose to model my nails after is from a blog that created a shot to commemorate Quantum Leap, a really great (and cheesy) show from the late 80's, early 90's. It's called the Starbright:
Photo from Knuckle Salad Blog by Kristina Ackerman. Isn't it fun? I searched a TON of my indies and I couldn't find any that I liked that were thin enough to give me the look I wanted...so I went off the 'indie' part and used my trusty China Glaze polishes, cause I know those are thin--and cuticle flooders. BUT! I still used my favorite indie topcoat AND a shot glass for nail art from an indie...so it sort of counts! :) Polishes Used: China Glaze High Hopes, Glistening Snow, Sun Worshiper, License and Registration Pls, and New Birth Shot glass from Different Dimensions Top Coat: Darling Diva Pryzmatic PETC To get my look, I used two coats of New Birth, then let dry. I decided I didn't want to use striping tape, because the lines aren't entirely straight, they're a bit blurred. I chose not to use a sponge gradient either, because I knew I would mess it up and get mad and frustrated. I decided just to use the brush and cross my fingers (mentally) to get them straight enough. And it worked! Not too shabby, eh? I know the nail world darling is CG Fairy Dust, but I prefer Glistening Snow. I like that it's more dense.
Shots for everyone! What do you guys think? Think they turned out ok?
A HUGE thank you to Jenna for letting me blog hop to you today!
I think they turned out just dandy fine, Jenne!
See what a lil teamwork can accomplish?
Especially, when Jenne comes up with a great idea
& I get Mr Inky to help with the tech stuff.
Thank you Jenne for letting me play on your blog today!
Thanks for stopping by!
