Marta from ChitChat nails is holding a competition to create a manicure to go with her dress, when she accompanies her husband to his works Christmas night.
You can view the details by clicking here.
This was my entry I emailed to Marta yesterday.
Close up of nail:
These are the following polishes I used for the manicure, in order used from left to right; Sinful Colors - Secret Admirer, Boots 17 - matte topcoat, Chanel - Peridot, China Glaze - Jitterbug, ELF - Black and Revlon - Belle:
I started off with 2 thin layers of Secret Admirer to represent the main black material of the dress, but decided to put 2 thin layers of matte topcoat over to tone down the sparkle and so as not to compete with the dress.
Then came a little sponging of Chanel Peridot to add a hint of colour, about 3/4 of the way from tip of nail upwards.
On top of this I sponged some Jitterbug to represent the darker sequins on the dress, which covered about half of the Peridot.
At the tips french manicure style I put some glossy ELF Black to match the silky belt of the dress.
Last but not least over the bottom half of nail and the ELF did a thin layer of Revlon Belle to copy the light sequins at the bottom of the dress.
Marta will be doing a post on Sunday to open up comments and a voting system to see who will win! I shall leave it up to you as to whether you would like to vote for me or not, I'm sure there will be some amazing entries!
I'll leave you with a pretty bottle spam photo: BLING!!!
