New Blogs & St Patty's Day Sponge ( again )

Sponge Mani using Claire's Evergreen, Emerald City and Finger Paints Tough Art To Follow

Here is another quick sponge mani I have worn all weekend.... I desperately wanted to copy THIS rainbow nails mani that Polish Infatuated posted a few days ago, but my base was too dark and the colours I chose didn't show up...... Here is the Original post and tutorial=

More photos below, but first NEW BLOGS!














♥♥♥ Thank-you everyone for adding your blog ♥♥♥

For this mani, I started with 2 coats of Claire's Evergreen, then sponged on Claire's Emerald City diagonally across the center of my nails, then sponged on Finger Paints Tough Art to Follow diagonally across the tips of my nails, I went over this area twice with the sponging, and even filled in some sparse areas with polish straight from the brush to smooth out any lumpy/bumpy spots.

The base polish I used is visible in some areas, I half-*ssed this mani when I could not get the 'rainbow-sponge' to work out like I planned - it still looked cool though and I wore it all weekend♥
