Fishbowl Friday *004*

by - 11/14/2014

Happy, Happy Friday... Happy Friday to you! I don't know about you, but I'm really glad that the weekend is finally here! This week's prompt is another obtuse one, and quite honestly left me wondering... why did I make that a prompt?!? But it is what it is, and this week's nails are FUN...

Glitter Gradient

Teal and Gray Glitter Gradient

Glitter Gradient

Teal and Gray Glitter Gradient

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Sinful Colors Smokin'
3 Coats Sinful Colors Blue Crushin'
China Glaze Tarnished Gold
Essence Choose Me!
Essence Miss Universe
Hard Candy Beetle
Hard Candy Mr. Wrong
Pure Ice Oh Baby! 
SOPI The Golden Age
Franken Gray Jelly
2 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat
1 Coat Essie Good to Go

The base of this manicure started out simply enough. Sinful Colors Smokin' for the base on my left pinky, ring, pointer, thumb, and right thumb, middle, and ring fingers. Then, my left ring, right pointer and pinky got a base of Blue Crushin', also from Sinful Colors.

I pulled out a couple of glitters and metallics and just started sponging and painting. I didn't really have a particular pattern in mind. For me, nothing says fun like glitter and sparkles, so I just sort of dabbed here and there until I was happy with the way each nail looked. Then I added 2 clear coats for extra shine, and finished it all off with a coat of Good To Go to set everything in place.

As much as I like this prompt and the manicure that came from it, I'm hoping for something a little more direct next week! Also, I'm going to try and keep my duochromes out of the mix next time. I really tried this week, but my mani needed that extra bit of sparkle and flash. Doesn't it always?!?
