A few weeks ago (1? 2? I don't know...) I bought some awesome new polish from Noodles Nails. It's a pretty cream crelly with purple and pink glitters, called Berries and Cream.
I love the color combinations and I think it will be a perfect winter
polish. Getting somewhat ahead of the seasons, I made a (sort of)
Nutcracker-themed design. Since there are some purple glitters in the
polish, I thought I'd try and paint the Sugar Plum Fairy.
I loosely based my design off of some images of the ballet costume, and
added some fairy-wings on the other two nails. I had high hopes for
this design, but I think it needs a bit of tweaking before Christmastime
used mainly pinks and purples for the design. For the wings, I started
by painting the basic shape with white paint. I went over the white with
thinned out Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Don't Be Leotardy on
the wing ends, fading into Nina Ultra Pro Plum of the Earth. The dark
purple stripes were made with OPI Vant to Bite My Neck.
The ballerina was made by (again) painting the basic shape with acrylic
paint. I used Don't Be Leotardy and Plum of the Earth again for the
Sugar Plum Fairy's leotard and tutu. Her skin color was made with an
extremely thinned out L'Oreal Doutzen's Nude, and her hair with a
thinned out Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Branch Out.
I hope you all have a fantastic week!
