Musical Mani Monday, week 8: Timbaland ~ The Way I Are



I’ve been giving this week’s challenge a lot of thought. I think that’s one thing challenges are really good at: They make you think about your manis instead of just doing them heedlessly.

Let me show you the result of this challenge. This is The Way I Are:


How did I end up with that result, you might ask yourself?
  
If you have been around for a little while, then you’ll know that I love glitter. The sparklier and shinier the better, which is also why holos have taken up so much space on my blog lately. I love blingy things so much that my boyfriend often says that I must have been a peacock in a previous life. Oooo, I like peacocks, they’re beautiful! I would love to have been one!

Here’s the picture that inspired me:


I considered making this a dotting mani, but I changed my mind at the last minute.


I made this by cutting the pattern with craft scissors and then taping onto my nails.


I thought it was appropriate to make this an all holo mani. I did consider glitter too, but ended up with peacock green glitter, and that wouldn’t have matched any of these colours.


Here are the polishes I used:

Cupcake Polish: Los Angeles, Ellagee: Living Just As Free As My Hair, Colors by Llarowe: Young Turks

And that’s the way I are. 


This was the eighth challenge in my Music Mani Monday. Stay tuned next week to see how I interpret Set Fire To The Rain with Adele. I promise you it won’t be boring!  

Check out what the other girls made on their nails:
