Today, we are celebrating Digit-al Dozen birthdays for April; this month, Uma at Uma's Nail Art and Katherine Marie at ProcrastiNails both celebrated birthdays; this is the mani I did based on the photo they picked for inspiration. Happy Birthday, Uma an Katherine Marie!
Started with a base of one coat of Enchanted Polish Opals & Cream.
I thought the iridescent glitters in the Enchanted Opals would give that oil slick kinda look in the bubbles so used them for a radial gradient. Used Enchanted Opals & Cream, Opal Lagoon, Opal Nectar and Candied Opal. In hindsight, I wish I had have done the base a little darker but these polishes are fairly goopy and not that opaque so I had had enough with doing sponging even to get them to this opacity.
They didn't quite give enough of the iridescent look I was going for so added two coats of Colorama Blazes of Crystal. I probably should have sponged on the flakies but didn't think of it at the time.
Stamped using an image from Creative Shop 02 using FunkyFingers Gesso.
Topped with KBShimmer to finish.
The next morning, I took these pix outside; they show the flakies a little better.
Then added a coat of OPI matte, again, hoping to show the magic of the flakies.
Uma and Katherine Marie, hope your birthday's were fabulous!
Here's the other ladies mani's!
Thanks for looking!
