Kinda Reminds Me of Cupcakes...
For this mani I started with Sinful Colors Snow Me White, sponged on Sinful Colors Sugar and Spice, and then topped it off with a gorgeous, glittery helping of Too Cute-icle's Pretty, Pretty Princess!
What I was hoping to achieve here was for the pinks to compliment each other more than they did, but I think my pink I chose for the gradient was too dark for this. However, it does sort of remind me of cupcakes... or ice cream... I'm not sure why! :D (Forgive the mess, I saved the super clean up for after the glitter was applied.)
While the pinks didn't do what I wanted, the glitter is just beautiful in itself, isn't it? I love Too Cute-icle's combo of pinks and blues with the tiny holographic pieces scattered in it. It's pretty remarkable outside.
This is the mani I was wearing last night when a nice lady at Wal-Mart (who had her bare foot up on a shelf next to the Sinful Colors display comparing reds!) couldn't believe that my nails are my own and wanted to know EXACTLY how I achieved this look! It really made me think that I should have some cards to pass out or something for my blog... what do you all think? Do you promote your blog like that or in a similar way? Anyway, so this lady was just a doll and she was looking at a red that would have NEVER matched what was on her toes in the way she wanted, so C and I helped her out. She asked how I knew so much about the colors and I proudly told her, because I can now!, that I'm a blogger and I have almost 300 beautiful colors! I can't help but wonder how things worked out for her and her red toenails.... ;)
Don't forget you can find Pretty, Pretty Princess at Jess's Etsy shop, Too Cute-icle! :)
Before I forget - I didn't get to post the mani yesterday because C has been soooo good in school for the whole month -- she has an excessive talking problem... I can't IMAGINE where she gets it!!! ;) -- and so R and I took her to the local PetsMart after school to pick out a new guinea pig! Previously we had a wonderful piggy, MOMO, who lived a very long, happy life with us until she passed of old age. This is our new little buddy, Clover, who C named after the rabbit friend on Princess Sophia. ;) ISN'T HE JUST FLIPPIN' PRECIOUS!? I love guinea pigs!!!!
