To create this manicure, I started with the nude base of Zoya Avery. I stamped the flower pattern from Pueen plate Pueen25 using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Quick Brick. I absolutely love the images in this set, but they are too short for my nails, so I must be creative. Oh Pueen, why do you torture me so? A few millimeters longer (or just minus the pesky curve) and I would be using this set all the time. As it is, I just glance at it and sigh! Okay, sorry, I digress...
To make up for the short images, I decided to try the latest cutout trend. Using a small brush and and acetone, I cleared the polish from the half-moon of each nail. Then with a detail brush, I lined the half-moon and the tips with Zoya Neve before adding the glitter...
The glitter bled as soon as I added a top coat! I didn't even think to test it first... so sad! FYI, this is glitter from the Nail Art mini bottles found at the Dollar Tree. Beware, they can bleed!
Ugh! Just look at that bleeding glitter! I cry and run to buy new loose glitter...
A few fresh swatches of the beautiful Zoya Avery because I'd like to think my swatches improved since I first swatched it here ;)
Avery is a full coverage nude cream. It is opaque in just two coats. Formula is very smooth and easy to apply. I used a top coat in these swatches...

This manicure reminds me of something, but I can quite place my finger on it... any ideas?
I'd love to know what you think!
Thanks for looking!
