Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!
It’s a big week at emsypickle – not only was it the final instalment of The London Blog Project on Tuesday, but this is also the last of the #NailArtWeeklyProject posts too wahhhhhhhh! Lovely Danni set a great theme for the final post, to ensure it goes out with a bang (and a sparkle…) – Glitz and Glam! To me, nothing is more glitzy and glamorous than a big sparkling diamond, so I decided this would be my inspiration for this week’s Midweek Manicure.
To create the look of a diamond I decided to do gradient nails with an icy blue ombre-ing into silver hologram. I then layered several silver glitters of varying density and size, to mirror the different cuts in a diamond and the way the light reflects off of them.
|Sadly I don’t have a real diamond ring!|
Here are the nail polishes I used, in the order they were layered on:
- Illamasqua – Caress
- GOSH – 549 Holographic Hero (special edition)
- Models Own – Juicy Jules
- Models Own – Southern Lights
- Models Own – Blizzard
I’m really pleased with this mani! I think it looks really pretty, and fits the theme of Glitz and Glam well. I really like glitter tip nails, and this cool blue colour means that it’s not too jazzy for work either.
