Sponging with Golden Flormar CW105 and Golden Rose 304
This mani is something I’ve been wanting to try for quite a while now – sponging. I can actually hear you think: “Sponging? I’ve seen her sponge before, so what is the big deal?” I’ll tell you what the big deal is: This time is different, just you wait and see!
I’m going to use a Flormar and a Golden Rose polish, that my friend Aylin from Posh Nail Art sent me, namely Flormar CW105, which is from their Wild Nails series, and Golden Rose #304, which is a Golden Rose Paris polish.
CW105 is a light purple with a metallic finish. It’s a one coater, and very easy to work with. It tends to get a little bit brush stroky, but I don’t mind that so much.
Here is a pic of one coat of CW105:
It’s pretty, I like it, and I love that it’s a one coater.
Moving on to the sponging. After having waited for the base colour dry completely, I applied one coat of Golden Rose #304, which is a deep purple packed with shimmer. I applied it over the entire nail, and then I pressed a sponge lightly into it while it was still wet, to remove some of the polish and let the underneath polish shine through. It’s like the saran wrap method, just less messy, but just as pretty – if not prettier! ;D
I repeated that step on all my nails, applied one coat of NYC top coat, and my mani was done! I took a picture of the sponge too, so you can see which kind it is. I believe it’s a make up remover sponger. It’s bought for nail art purposes though and it works.
That’s it for today! I didn’t do more than this – sometimes it’s nice to keep it relatively simple, and I only did this mani to test the method.
Do you like the effect? Have you tried it yourself? If not, would you like to?
