Manic(ure) Monday: Up in the sky


These two will play a major role in the following manicure...Curious? Read on!
A bit later than usual but here it is: the brand new Manic(ure) Monday post. My nails aren't even completely dry and you already get to see the pics. This time I tried to produce a nice effect with a old paint brush...Enjoy!

Nail hardener as a base.

 My new Kiko nail polish I bought in Portugal.

 To produce the following effect use a stiff-bristled paint brush.

 Dab the brush in a drop of nail polish and then use it like a stamp on your nails.

Et voilà!




In fact the nail polish is several nuances darker but I couldn't catch the right colour with my camera.


What I used:
Manhattan French Manicure Nailife nail hardener 52A
Kiko 336
Essie No Place like Chrome 213A
Manhattan Pro Mat Top Coat

Hope you liked it. Which colours would you combine if you tried this manciure?
