Seashell? Whaaaaa? Today's theme in the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge is 'seashell'. I just got my tiny, adorable, precious bottle of GG White Gold Sparkle in the mail this week and omg - it is beautiful! I really love it; it makes me feel all sparkly and pretty. This is just one coat of GG White Gold Sparkle over a quick coat of Wet n Wild Private Viewing, a sheer nude. Using a quick coat of Private Viewing spared me from needing to paint multiple coats of White Gold Sparkle and makes it extra glamourous by leaving a teeny hint of VNL. First photo is indirect natural light, second photo is flash, third photo is flash. I used Seche Vite to top this; you need a thick-ish top coat because the holo particles are really gritty on their own.
I got my new Bundle Monster plates in the mail this week, too! I thought I would try out a new design to make an accent 'seashell' nail from the first plate - BM 301. My boyfriend bought them for me and so he opened the package when it came, only to be surprised that something addressed to him wasn't for him - baww :(
Earlier today I tried doing a Friday the 13th mani and it was less than stellar, so I did this seashell mani instead. It's so pretty though, I can't bear to take it off and work on anything else right now! I'll have to take it off soon so that I can do my girly nails for tomorrow's BFF challenge. Tomorrow is also my blog's technical birthday!!! So weird how time flies! I wouldn't really consider my blog to have been in full swing until maybe October, and that's being gentle. I think I really started getting into things a little in December and then a lot in January - so it doesn't feel like a year yet at all.
Final thought: OMG, this is so darned pretty! I feel like this is the most amazing 'conservative' holo-y color I have O_O *drools*
