Candy Land

I did this mani a while back with V-day in mind... but it didn't quite turn out that way, lol.  It actually reminds me more of easter.  But then it also reminds me of candy.  Like cotton candy or peeps or something.  Which brings me back to feeling like it's easter.

Wow, I look tan!  LMAO!  Anyway, this is 3 coats of American Apparel Coney Island topped with Nubar Hyacinth Sparkle.  I did the sparkle in a gradient so it would be thicker towards the tip.  I think it looks like I dipped my nails in sugar!

SOOOOOO pretty!!  I got a lot of compliments on this too.  I think because it's so shiny, lol.  The American Apparel went on fairly well.  I needed the 3 coats for full coverage.  The Nubar is PACKED with glitter so I had to essentially use a dry brush to get the sparse glitter near the base.

It happened to be crazy sunny the day I did this one, so I took a full sun photo.  It actually kinda makes the glitter NOT as good.  Is that possible?  Oh well.  Anyway, it worked better indoors, lol.
