Hello, Fireflies! Oh, wait. That's my blog. I'm Nidia, and I'm guest posting, B#$ches! I picked up a couple polishes from this new-to-me Indie, Liquidus. This is Arsenic, a grey creme with a *very* subtle gold shimmer. As in, I can't see it on the nail at all. Very thick formula, could be a one-coater if you were careful. The ding on my middle finger is actually from my attempt at a teabag patch. Yeah, it was bad.
The nail art I did was inspired by this Pinterest pin by Kelsie's Nail Files. I couldn't find the original blog post - the pin takes you to a collection someone else did of her manis. I hope someone with better Google-fu than I have can point me to her original post.
The first set of stripes I did with a nail art brush and Liquidus Blue Diamond Turquoise. I love these deep, rich, blue jellies. I love the depth and shine they have!
SpaRitual Ripple Effect is a dusty lilac with enough grey tone to go with Arsenic. I love these colors together. I touched up a little bit with Arsenic, too, which is why it's looking a bit of a hot mess.
Manis like this *need* topcoat to smooth out all the different textures and make it glossy.
I can't help but be bummed that I couldn't get that gold shimmer to show up. I like the combination of colors, though!
Thanks, Julie, for the opportunity to guest post! If you like this mani, and want to see more from me, please like my Facebook page for blog updates, and/or follow me on my blog.
I always adore Nidia's nail art. It always looks great, and her instructions are perfect for even the most novice of nail artists (like myself!). Don't forget to go check her out over at Lit from Within! Thanks for sharing, Nidia!
