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
Cute idea! I like the star addition!
I love them both :)
The final product looks amazing. You are really good at sponging!
I was going to say I like the taper of the nails, and then I read that you did that by hand. They look great! The manis' look lovely.
Both are so pretty very nice sponging!
The sponging is great... but the tiny star at the bottom makes it just perfect!!! I love the whole look!!
I love sponging! Nice manicure! :)
