A2Z Challenge: D is for Dark part II



A2Z Challenge: D is for Dark part II

Alright, let me show you another mani I did for the challenge. As I mentioned in my post earlier today, I struggled with the Dark theme.

This is actually the first mani I made for the challenge:

 
The base colour is Lilypad Lacquer’s Angel of the Night, which is a Norway Nails exclusive I bought a while ago.


The paint drips is made with Color Club’s Eternal Beauty – a gorgeous purple linear holo that I love a lot!


I really like the effect of this.


Here are the two purples I used.


There are several reasons I didn’t use this mani for the challenge. The first reason is that I had huge trouble with it. I originally wanted to make a tape mani. I painted two layers of the Lilypad on my nails. I waited for a long time between the coats and when it was completely dry I painted a layer of Poshé topcoat over it. Then I waited some more. But the tape still pulled the base colour off! Grrrr!!! After two attempts I decided to not do a tape mani – and instead make the paint dripping mani in this post.

I wanted something a little more challenging for this challenge, so I decided to make the eclipse mani instead of this one.

Do you like this?

Here are what the other girls did:
