Good morning, dear readers!
After several more layering attempts, I decided that OPI Do you think I’m Tex-y? is a great layering polish, and I can show you several more layering options for this polish, but it would be boring after a while – so I’d like to show you something that even somebody as untalented for miniture painting (what else is it what you do on your nails!) as I can easily achieve. Gee, that was a long sentence! In short: I’d like to show you my favourite nail art, sponging.
I started off with 2 coats of Do you think I’m Tex-y? , “my” challenge polish. You’ll want to wait until your base colour is dry, because you have to use a small bit of a make up sponge to dab the other colour(s) on your nail. If you dab at your nail and the base colour isn’t dry, you’ll have everything sticking to your sponge instead of the nail!
Here is the first layer I did; I used OPI Cozu-melted in the sun for the first gradient sponging.
After I let 2 coats of Cozu-melted in the sun dry, I used OPI Teenage Dream for some glitter at the tiops. I find it hard to sponge Teenage Dream, and next time I’ll use another glitter polish for the tipps (I have used sucessfully so far: SOPI What’s your Poison?, butter LONDON Rosie Lee and China Glaze Shooting Stars)!
Luckily I only made way too many pictures of this! I wanted to wear this much longer, but I had to come up with some more ways to wear Do you think I’m Tex-y?, so I had to remove this awesome manicure. I’ll wear this again soon, because I really loved it – it reminded me of sugar icing and winter on my finger tipps.
Do you like sponge nail art? Have you ever tried?
Have you seen how creative the other ladies are??
