The GOT Polish Challenge must include a polish you have owned for at least one year. So far, I have tried to include either a nail polish or nail art accessories I have owned for 12 months. This time, though, everything featured here has been in my stash for more than a year.
This week's theme is "bling". I have pretty much thrown every bit of shine and bling I could at my nails, literally plastering them in glitter. The result, which you will see below in a minute, is not very pretty. But aesthetic appeal was sacrificed in favour of going way too over the top. But I have made up my mind to share my nail art fails as well as the ones that look decent - and I get it wrong quite a lot.
My base colour for this manicure is the gorgeous O.P.I. Ink nail polish, which I have swatched by itself.
Now for the mess I made with glitter and stones. I dipped my nails - as soon as I applied a layer of topcoat - in a pot of loose round glitter for the thumb and index finger. This was the ugliest part of the mani. Ugh! I followed suit with smaller glitter for the middle finger and pinky. This was the part I liked about this mani - the small glitter gives a nice texture to the nails. The remnants of larger glitter on the middle finger are because I had experimented with a design before giving it up. Finally, I placed stones in a haphazard pattern on the ring finger. Overkill!
This is my entry to the GOT Polish Challenge for the theme "bling". I certainly have stuck to the theme, haven't I? I cannot wait for next week's challenge! I picked up an idea from a nail polish group and hope to replicate it.
