Moonstone And Black Rubber ~ Pigment Manicure

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? I hope your having a fantastic weekend! I was a little pampered this weekend, being treated by my Partner. Greek food, so delicious! My weekend has been filled with nail polish, wine and reruns of Desperate Housewives. Deary me! Unfortunately my nail polish adventures where a little lack-luster which is why the post was delayed. I knew just how I wanted something to look so I wouldn't stop until I got there!
For this manicure I started with two luscious coats of Barry M's Gelly 'Prickly Pear' and added various pigments by Pure Luxe on top with the intent of creating a colour shift similar to a moonstone/opal (When I move my hand in the light I can see it!) I then added very slim French tips in W7's Black and added Model's Own Pro matte topcoat on top.

I really wanted a a strong contrast between the shimmery pigments and I think I achieved that with the slightly out of place tips! Only one thing bothered me a little.. You can still see a tiny bit of shine on the black but I could get so picky.

What do you think of this manicure? Do you like the contrast between the nail polish and the black tips?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Love
Ithi

  3. Ah, and your header is changed! Didn't see that at first. How long have you had it? Ie. have I been blind or did you just change it?
