Hi everyone!  I'm sorry I've been MIA for the past few days!  I've been super busy with the new Elixir collection, as well as a super fun weekend camping trip with our oldest son and some friends.
I came home on Sunday evening to find a particularly awesome piece of nail mail, and I knew I had to share a bit of it with you!

I started off with three coats of OPI Moon Over Mumbai, a sheer off white shimmer with some blue/grey undertones.  I followed it with one coat of SV.

Next, I added one coat of Candeo Colors Joker, a clear coat loaded with silver, blue, light purple, dark purple, and periwinkle multi-sized hexes.  (That's right, I said periwinkle. *faints*)

It's a complete glitterbomb!  Like I said, this is only one coat!  
I left my ring finger blank to create and accent nail.

I used my small dotting tool with Zoya Monica, Zoya Carly, Essie No More Film, and Color Club Pucci-licious to create a dotted gradient on my ring fingers.  I finished with one coat of Poshé.

I adore the look of the dotted gradient paired with Joker.  Joker is a seriously amazing glitter, but I could have done with a little less glitterbombage.  It's just a teeny bit much, but it's still gorgeous.

I hope you all enjoy today's mani!

Happy Painting!

  5. I don't know which I love more...the glitter or the accent nail?
