The saying is something along the lines of “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” – right?
Well, I hope it is – because I just copied another manicure (and by copy, I mean attempted – definitely not exact copy). And I hope the original artists consider it flattering, and not just forgery! (can nail art be forged?)
I always try my best to add the link and artists name/blog, so you guys can check them out and also, give them credit for the original idea/design. (good blog etiquette if you aren’t doing this already)
This one, is from a blogger I follow daily – she always has something creative and beautiful on her nails 🙂 Polish Acolholic.
With my attempt – I used Nfu Of Jelly JS01 and my own frankenpolish, which is a mix of spectraflair polish and holographic glitter dust.
First was 2 layers of the glitter polish and a thick layer of Seche Vite top coat to smooth the bumps. After that had dried, I taped triangle pieces of tape, and painted the Nfu of black jelly. And once that was dry, I removed the triangles and added two more layers of Seche Vite top coat, to give it an extra smooth glossy look.
So strange, here in the daylight photo, you can see the grooves where the tape was – you would never know there was a ton of top coat filling that area.
