Tractor Beams

Do you ever find yourself with the desire to swatch to try out some of your untrieds?  Yeah.  Me too.  So, that was my little dilemma!  But then I happened to see part of The Fourth Kind on HBO last night.  So, problem solved!


I started by using two coats on Cult Nails Get It On base coat, since I would be using glitters.  (This makes glitter removal a little easier!)  Then, I grabbed my LA Splash Golden Seahorse - a gorgeous light teal with gold glitter in square and hexagon shapes.  It's a great formula that is opaque in just one coat!!  Isn't it gorgeous? 


I followed with one quick coat of SV.  Next, I taped a section covering half of my nail and added two coats of Zoya Julieanne, a beautiful deep purple with an amazing sparkling purple finish.  And, of course, follow with another coat of SV.  (Notice the pattern yet?)


Next, I taped off again for the side swipe and used Barielle Falling Stars - possibly the thickest polish I have ever had my hands on.  It is a beautiful blue with orange glitter.  And, yep, another coat of SV.


Finally, I taped off yet again and used Nina Pro Purple-xing, an awesome array of silver micro glitter and holographic glitter in a shimmery purple base.  I finished the whole thing off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.


So there you have it!  Four untried polishes in one fun mani!  I hope you enjoy it ladies!!!  Happy Painting!

Colors: LA Splash Golden Seahorse, Zoya Julieanne, Barielle Falling Stars, Nina Pro Purple X-ing
