lol - that fluff!
Today, after my blog hiatus, I have two purple sponge mani's. First I frankened Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost with China Glaze Grape Juice. Even though I darkened the China Glaze polish, the glass flecks were still very prominent, so that's a good thing.
I started with a base of older discontinued artificial nails from Nail Fetish that I found at the dollar store. I mixed up WnW Eggplant Frost with China Glaze Grape Juice on a piece of tin foil and sponged it on the last 3/4 of my nail....when it was sorta dry I added a coat of Nailene TC.
ChG Grape Juice, a pretty pale purple glass fleck polish that I don't use enough.
stuff I used; WnW Eggplant Frost, China Glaze Grape Juice Nailene TC
While I do like China Glaze Grape Juice, I think it is a tad too light, so I frankened a small amount with Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost and did a graduated sponge on a lilac base.
this is the base of the above and below manicures,
These are old discontinued Nail Fetish artificial nails that I found at the dollar store, they are a light lilac and have subtle shimmer. I had to cut them down and re-shape them, they were a weird almond shape.... also I glued the wrong one on my index nail, it is waaaaay to big! Whoops.
..... and another purple sponge mani~
stuff I used, XW Purple Potion, Purple stars from Michelas Craft stores, Nailene TC
I did a graduated sponge, then brushed on the Sally Hansen Purple Potion on the last 1/4 of my nail then added the star & a coat of TC
this is an older Sally Hansen X-treme Wear polish I found at a Garage sale for .10 cents
