A Storm is Brewing

Hi everyone!!  I've gotten some amazing indies lately, and the names have been so inspiring for such fun mani ideas!!!!


I started off with two coats of Sally Hansen Wet Cement, a light grey creme, followed by one coat of SV.


Next, I used Barry M Silver Foil with Bundle Monster plate BM-305 for the lightning design.  I covered it with one coat of SV to protect it from the next step.


I was worried that Silver Foil might be a bit too light to show properly against Wet Cement, but I was dead wrong!  I love the combo of these two together.  Part of me wanted to stop here since I liked it so much!


I then applied one coat of F4 Polish Stormy Night, a clear coat loaded with matte purple, black, white and blue glitters in various shapes and sizes.


I'm crazy about these glitters!  They were a little bit reluctant to come out of the bottle, especially the white ones for some reason.  But, honestly, I was kind of glad, since I wasn't going for a glitter bomb look.  I finished with one last coat of SV.


I had a lot of fun with this one!  I hope you enjoy!

Happy Painting!!

  4. The silver lightning bolts are my favorite part of this mani. Even though it's gray-on-gray, they just really pop!
