To do these I started with two coats of Loaded Lacquer Coconut and then, on all but the accent nails, sponged/brushed on Sally Hansen Blizzard Blue. I picked that blue because it's very sheer but still shiny. It's pretty useless to wear on it's own but it worked for this. On top of that I sponged on some Cirque Magic Hour and then added a coat of Glam Polish Glimmer to give it the iridescent glitter look.
Then I went to town with the crystals that I bought from Artbeads.com. I used Crystal AB crystals here with the sizes of SS5 7 and 9. They look a bit less dramatic in my photos than they did in real life. In real life they were diamond-y sparkly goodness! So much so that I bought even more Swarovskis after doing these. I should now be set for bling for ages so you should expect me to be using more of these sometime soon.
After wearing this, all I can say is thank goodness there's peel off base coat - that thankfully didn't work too good since I wanted to get my money's worth out of this mani and wear it for a couple of days!
'Til next time...
