ABC Challenge: M is for Magnetic Moons
Howdy, everyone! We've all made it to Wednesday and that means it's time for another Challenge post! This week's ABC Challenge letter is "M" and, for once, I had no trouble deciding what to do. I'm not sure why, but moons popped into my head. Here's what I came up with:
I had a heck of a time photographing this manicure, so bear with me please. I promise it looks really cute in real life! I started with 2 coats of Moon Walk by Love & Beauty (thanks, Liz!), an opalescent polish with holographic glitter. This polish has a lot more of a pink hue than I was able to capture here and the sparkly bits are just wonderful! After Moon Walk dried, I pulled out my trusty paper reinforcement stickers and applied them randomly on my nails. Using China Glaze's Magnetix in Pull Me Close, I filled in the holes and pulled off the stickers, leaving little "moons" of polish. While PMC was still wet, I used a magnet to create a pattern sort of like moon craters. I let everything dry and then, with a small art brush, I painted on clouds with MAC's Vestral White and Cover Girl's NailSlicks in Midnight.
I'm hoping between Magnetix, moons, Moon Walk, MAC, and Midnight that I got enough "M"s in!
