Tonight, I was originally planning on entering the Cult Nail's contest but decided my creative juices (and my energy levels) weren't flowing. I started out with Illamasqua 'Purity' and placed different sized polka dots using various Cult Nail's shades that include 'Iconic', 'Hypnotize Me', 'Feel Me Up', 'Awakening', and 'My Kind of Cool Aid'. I'm not gonna lie, it looked horribly ugly and I'm still a bit 'iffy' as to how I feel about it. I then thought of Deborah Lippmann's 'Glitter in the Air' and Revlon's 'Whimsical' and thought to put a sheer wash over it to make the colors seem less garish. I think it helped, it's definitely interesting. I used French Tip Dip's 'B 1001' which is the sheer nude shade that comes with these kits.
I used two coats of Illamasqua's 'Purity' which was one of the most difficult polishes to use. It's VERY thick and gloppy. It easily creates streaks and doesn't blend very well. I had a really hard time with it as much as I love the color, I'm definitely going to add some thinner to this polish.
And the photos...
So, maybe I had an artsy fartsy night. It's all just in good fun anyway. I'm still waiting on my brush set from Hong Kong (it's been over a month) and I think I'll wait for them before I try any other 'nail art'. What do you guys think? ;oD
