Today’s #PYMNov2014 Challenge was flannel nails. Here is what I came up with:
I kind of love them, and am going to be super sad to take them off to swatch tomorrow (assuming my new order arrives tomorrow).
Here is what I used:
From left to right: Essie Grow Stronger, Konad Black, Zoya Dove, Zoya London, OPI Monsooner or Later, Moyou London Pro XL 1, OPI Glitter Off, OPI Matte Top Coat, HK Girl, NYC In a New York Minute, Poshe Quick Dry.
I started off with Glitter Off on my ring finger and Grow Stronger on the rest, followed by one coat of Dove topped with Poshe:
You cann see that the Glitter Off on my ring finger hasn’t completely dried yet. I am not a patient person, so I was doing other things while that dried, like my gradient! I used a wet make-up sponge with Dove and Monsooner or Later dabbed, in two passes, so that it looked like this:
And, as you can see, my mucked up my glue base while I was doing my gradient. And I totally didn’t fix it. I was putting a pixie dust on top of it, so a slight muck wouldn’t really matter.
Once this was dry, I added the stamping and, on my ring finger, one coat of Grow Stronger and two coats of London:
These are topped with HK Girl. But, I’ve seen so many beautiful matted flannel manis, I decided to matte mine as well:
I kind of figured I was going to matte, which is why I added London as an accent. I need a touch of sparkle tonight!
Thanks for stopping by!
