So yeah, this is a few months late as well. But whatever.
This year I did a lot of glitter for the Sharks Playoffs season. The first manicure (above) was completely inspired by Leah Light, which is one of my favorite nail artists on Instagram. She’s amazing! And she does a lot of graphic and geometric manicures in her salon down in New Zealand.
The first manicure is:
- OPI Black Onyx with a matte top coat
- Nubar Teal Glitter
- White striper
I painted each nail with the polishes listed above, then used the white striper and glitter to create a little accent on my index finger.
My second manicure, below, was definitely much more girly. This was inspired by a Pretty Little Liars manicure on the character Hannah. She had a leopard and coral red alternating manicure and I took that concept and made it teal and glittery instead.
Here’s what I used:
- Orly Luxe (gold foil base)
- Konad leopard print plate to stamp
- Zoya Charla (teal glittery base)
- Lynnderella I Don’t Mean Rhinestones (glittery teal accent on middle finger)
- Lynnderella Chocolotta Love as brown glitter accents
Each of the polishes I used are readily available. Lynns are available on eBay and retail for $23 each. Zoya is available at Ulta and on their website and are $8 each. Orly Luxe you can find on etailers online. And then Konad is easily available online as well.
I had each of these manicures on through each of the rounds of playoffs, which is why I had only 2 manicures this year 😦 But nonetheless, I loved each of the manicures I did this year!
