I'm always on the hunt for a way to make nails looks like opals (my favourite stones) and Glitterfingersss has a good tutorial here that I kind of followed. I started with Essie Marshmallow and then did a non-linear gradient (meaning I put blobs of different colored polish randomly on the sponge and applied it like a gradient). For the colors I used Lime Crime Parfait Day, Lavendairy, Once In A Blue Mousse, Pastelchio, Crema de Limon and Peaches & Cream. Then I started with the glitters and flakies. I used Color Club Snow-Flakes, China Glaze Luxe and Lush, Cirque Magic Hour then one coat Girly Bits January Morning and another coat Snow-Flakes. It was probably sparkle overkill but I didn't want to fuss with individually applying pieces like Lexa did.
Then I added my whimsical stamping starting with white stars from Born Pretty BP-06.
Then using Mundo de Unas Dark Grey I added Fairies and more stars from CZ08 and MoYou London Fairytale 01. Finally, I finished with HK Girl.
I took A LOT of photos of this mani so here's a couple more.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hopefully you can check out the rest of the Digit-al Dozen's Whimsy nails in the links below. Enjoy!
