I did this mani one lazy Saturday afternoon while in cottage country. I had spent the prior lazy Saturday afternoon in cottage country making a bunch of jelly polishes and was anxious to see how they worked! Not too shabby if I do say so myself!
Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. The black stamping polish was Milani black (and poor clean up I see!). The plates used were Infinity 68 (index, middle and ring) and Infinity 40 (thumb and pinky).
Filled in using both a dotting tool and a brush using lots of different jelly polishes; some of the polishes were the ones I made, others were store bought that were in my stash.
While I really like the sheers with glitter in them, they weren't my favourite when used in this mani. I liked these three nails best!
Top coated to finish.
How about a creepy macro of the parrot? (Can you tell he was my favourite nail?)
I was glad to test run some of my homemade jellies on this mani; it gave me a good idea of which polishes worked well for leadlighting and some that aren't as good as well as a good idea of clear to creme ratio. One things for sure; I will be checking out my stash for polishes to use to make a few more! The empty bottles I ordered just arrived....I see another lazy Saturday afternoon in cottage country making jelly polishes in my future!
Thanks for looking!
