My Tribal/Aztec Nails Attempt

Sunday, February 5, 2012

Hey guys! I've tried to do tribal nails so many times but they always came out...less than desirable. These are probably the best I've ever done even though they could use some improvement. I used my one of my favorite color combinations besides blue and green. Yellow, blue, and purple!

Colors used were China Glaze 'Solar Power', Zoya 'Perrie', and China Glaze 'For Audrey'. And black and white. These pictures remind me of summer. Have a nice day!

Milani Rad Purple with Flakie Goodness

Saturday, February 4, 2012

I've had this manicure on for so long. I love it. We got 2 coats on Milani 'Rad Purple', which is supposed to be a neon but it more of a red toned purple jelly in my eyes. Hence the tip shrinkage. Then, I layered two coats of Essie 'Shine of the Times' on top and I love the effect. It almost reminds me of a flakie version of Clarins 230. I tried to capture the color shift as much as I could. I was originally going to make a jelly sandwich out of the flakies and this polish, but the Milani dulled the flakes a lot and ruined the sparkly goodness.
The way the polish sometimes looks like a purpley-orange and then flashes that strong green is gorgeous. One of my favorite manicures in a while.
