Alphabet Challenge: C is for...

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the third installation of the Alphabet Challenge! For those of you who know your letters and can count, you'll have worked out that today is the letter C! I was going away for the week at the time, so I wanted something relatively simple and (hopefully) durable. Here is what I ended up with:

These were so blingy and disco-ball-ish :D

They didn't wear as well as I'd hoped they would, but they were quite pretty! I used Essence Colour & Go in Choose Me! for the base. Oh my goodness, these photos do not do it justice. It's an absolutely beautiful shimmery glassflecky turquoise polish that is not as visibly thin near the tips as it appears here in these close-up shots.

The glitters are the clear large loose hex glitters from Born Pretty Store (can be found here; it's part of a set of 12 colours). Yes, clear. Because 'clear' starts with C. *nods* They look silver in this photo, and in some lighting situations they were, but mostly they were that translucent pretty clear-ish type. I used an orange stick to pick them up and place them on the nail while the base polish was still wet. Finally, sealed in with two coats of Orly Sec 'N Dry topcoat.

With flash, you can see the clear-ness of the glitters better, as well as that beautiful shimmer of Choose Me! The primary colour is turquoise/teal, but there are kelly-green and gold flashes at times also! Just stunning.

Excuse the tipwear here :) this was after a few days, but I still loved the pic so I wanted to post it as well.

Hope you enjoyed this simple but blingy look. See you next time. You want the D? I'll give you the D ;)  xoxo
