CND Effects Teal Sparkle Over Wet n Wild Night Prowl - Finger Paints Be A Pal-ette & Nail Art Sticker (two jewels "set" in silver) on Index Finger
I must say that despite my horrible cuticles and dry skin, this photo does NOT do justice to the beauty of this manicure! I tried and tried to get a good photo but this was the best I could do... Hopefully you can use your imagination a bit. :) It was truly stunning and if you have the products (or similar - the must-haves are CND Effects Teal Sparkle and a very deep glass flecky-y purple), give it a try and let me know what YOU think of it!!!
Here are the products I used:
- Wet n Wild Shine Night Prowl - 2-3 coats
- CND Effects Teal Sparkle #568 - 2 coats
- Finger Paints Be A Pal-ette - 3 coats (index)
- Nail art sticker - Two "jewels" in silver "setting" (index)
- Poshé Super-Fast Drying Topcoat - 2 coats
IRL you could see little flashes of purple coming through the Teal Sparkle CND Effects as I moved my hands, which was awesome! The Teal Sparkle over WnW Night Prowl (which, I must say, is GORGEOUS on it's own! WnW really rocks it with a LOT of their products these days and for the past couple/few years!!!) creates nearly and emerald green color with very intense shimmer and sparkle! It's really kind of magical looking! :D
Can you tell I'm kinda in lurve with Teal Sparkle?? Yeah, I'm already almost 50% through my bottle and I've only had it for 6 weeks! Hehe! :D
What are your thoughts on this mani (all opinions encouraged and respected, have no fear! :))? Have you played with any of the CND Effects? So far I have 5 of the Effects, Teal, Red, Silver, and Gold Sparkle, and Perfectly Bare Shimmer. Silver and Gold don't do much for me China Glaze Fairy Dust and Golden Enchantment are way better, for example), Red Sparkle is nice, Perfectly Bare Shimmer is very pretty and quite versatile, and Teal Shimmer is a must-have in my opinion.
