I'm going to take some creative liberties and share these nails based upon nails that I did here back on July 19, 2016 (but the mani had been in archives for a year so it actually dates back to 2015) versus one of my very first blog posts. I love how this turned out and I've been topping all the mani's with holographic glitter topcoat since! Here's what I came up with!
Here's my inspiration mani. Hmm, I'm not sure which one I like better; I think they both look pretty cool! While these nails are from 2015, I still do those metal stud accent nails on a fairly regular basis; it never goes out of style to me! But I rarely wear my nails this long now; they don't even look like my nails to me!
Started with a base of Orly TX and Orly Frolic, then did a sponged gradient on Orly Frolic using Orly TX. Top coated with Seche Diamond Dust. Sorry for wonky middle finger; it is so awkward in pix for months now but it is at the homestretch of growing out!
Here's the other ladies day 3 mani's!
Thanks for looking!
