Monday Mani: Sparkles Always Makes Things Better

My favorite nail polishes are the dark vampy type: it can be a deep dark green, a oxblood burgundy or the new classic black.  This week I decided to mix my favorite forest green by cosmetic arts that I bought at Ross for only $1.99.   It’s amazing I love that it’s really smooth and barely needs a second coat and  I also used Revlon’s Nail Art in ulterior motif.  I normally would have done the green on it’s own but it’s Halloween this week and my birthday is the day after  so I wanted something a little more fun and what better way than with sparkles!  Below are the steps to my mani.

What I used:

Revlon Ulterior Motif

Wet n Wild Clear Polish

Cosmetic Art #34

1. I applied one thick coat of clear polish.

2. Two coats of the green (only half the nail on the ring fingers) and let dry.

3. Apply 3 coats of the sparkle end of Ulterior Motif to the ring fingers.

4. After all the nails are dry lights brush the sparkle along the sides of nails.  I formed a v to create a pattern but it’s also very pretty if you apply sporadically.
