Today I've got a drippy, slimy manicure to share with you. Inspired by the green Glam Polish shade which is part of the upcoming COVEN collection based on our favorite TV and film witches. Slime just seems to fit the witchy theme, does it not? I had a lot of fun with this manicure and it would be perfect for Halloween. Can't believe that it's almost around the corner again. It will sneak up on us before we know it...
For the manicure I started out with a base of Glam Polish Zelena. With the help of nail vinyls and a bit of adjusting with a detail brush, it was really easy to add black along the tips to form the drips. The black that I used is my go to Wet 'n Wild Black Creme...
The dripping vinyls that I used come from Whats Up Nails and are high quality and super easy to use. My only issue with these vinyls is one of design and it is that the drips either start or end (depending which half of the vinyl you use) in a straight line. If you look at the white portion in the image below, you can see how all the drips end at the same level. Or if you flip it and look at the red portion, they will all start to drip at the same level. This isn't a big deal at all, but somehow it bugged me enough that I chose to slightly adjust the drips on my nails.
I realized while working on this post, that this isn't the first drippy manicure that I've done with Glam Polish shades, but it is now my favorite. The first one I created freehand with a detail brush. Using the vinyls this time, made it a much quicker and cleaner endeavor. I'll definitely be using these vinyls again some day...
Glam Polish Zelena
A green jelly loaded with holographic glass fleck shimmer. I can never seem to pick up the holo with my camera because I don't use flash, but the shimmer is so beautiful. You can see little bits of it in the bottle of these shots. Two coats provides good coverage. The formula is nice, it does not drag and is easy to apply. Swatches are with a top coat...
Zelena is part of the Limited Edition “COVEN” Collection
