Today it's time for the next installment of Llama Nails alphabet challenge; we're up to 'K'. I know what you're thinking--wait, what do you mean you're not doing 'K is for Kitten'?? Hey, I can't go with the expected, I'm not gonna let expectations hold me down! That's just how I roll--if you zig left, I'm gonna zag right! HA!
Sorry, I got a little silly there. I'm better now.
Honestly, I had planned on doing 'kitten', but I did want to try something a bit different, and had been playing around with some new red polishes, so I decided to go with 'K is for Kiss'. :)
I started out with this base of China Glaze Igniting Love, from the Cirque Du Soleil collection:
The bottom picture shows more accurately what this looks like to the naked eye, but it's hard to get the complexity of Tolly-diggle on camera. Add to that the red glitter peeking out on the main nails, and the metallic glitters poking out on the accent nail, and my camera nearly threw its hands up and quit on me, lol. The final picture below actually shows the overall layered glitter effect best.
When I saw this combination, I knew I had to do something cool with it, but I wasn't sure what. And then I thought...red and pretty metallic colors...perfect for a bunch of pouty smoochie kisses! Here is the final SWAK product:
|Ack! Dog hair on mah nail!|
In this bottom picture, despite the stamping, you can see the layered glitter effect better than in the pictures without the stamping. I think maybe because the stamping gives the camera something to latch on to? I don't know...but I'm glad that it came out and shows you the true effect, because I personally think this layering combination is really nice. :)
For the stamping, I used Pure Ice Silver Mercedes. For the accent nail, I used the new Red Angel plates...I'll review these soon after I do more testing with them. The other lips on the other nails are from Bundle Monster plate BM-02.
Thanks for taking a look! Please check out the other 'K' manicures, linked below. :)
