Fireworks Nails

The theme for today's Nail Art Sunday is "Travel" and this manicure is inspired by a journey I did quite a few years ago to Loire in France. It was a company thing and the weekend was amazing!

One of the things we did was to have a medieval party with costumes, jugglers, magicians etc at an old castle. It was great fun and the evening was ended with a huge firework at midnight.

I will not lie and say this manicure was an easy ride ;) It took me a about two hours actually but it was so worth it and this was actually my new years eve manicure :D

The base is Illamasqua Scorn and then I've stamped a pattern from Bundle Monster BM-202 with a silver polish from Depend, #223. After that I've carefully filled in the middle of the silver patches with three different textured glitter polishes, Isadora Love Crush (red), Isadora Turquoise Crush and Barry M Majesty (gold). To finish the whole thing off I've added a thin coat of INM Northern Lights Holo Top Coat Silver for that extra sparkle.

Here's what it looks like without a holo top coat.

I was very pleased with the result :)
How do you like it?
Do you like it best with or without the holo top coat?

  4. Jättesnyggt, och vilket arbete du lagt ned! Men som du säger så kan vi konstatera att det var värt det. Kan dock inte bestämma mig vilken av dem jag gillar bäst. Den utan känns som en abstrakt tavla medan holot tar fram stjärnhimlen och verkligen framhäver fyrverkeriet. Oavsett så var det kul att se båda. :)

  9. Underbar! Och håller med Gelic, för att få fram känslan av att det är fyrverkerier så är det den med holo topcoat som gäller.
