What I used:
Sally Hansen double duty base and top coat
Sally Hansen Insta Dri (not necessary but an excellent quick dry topcoat which adds an amazing gel like shine)
Revlon black lingerie
Revlon blue lagoon
China Glaze towel boy toy
Color Club neon purple
Color Club neon pink
Models Own Ibiza mix
Paul and Joe 014
2 x cut up pieces of make up sponges
After protecting my nails with a base of double duty I painted two coats of black lingerie.
When this dried I sponged on a small amount of blue lagoon (light blue) to about 1/2 of the nail.
Next, a small amount of towel boy toy (frosted mid blue) was smudged around that.
I then used very small amounts of the Color Club neons on the sponge.
The look was finished off with one coat of Ibiza mix (mixed glitter) and two coats of the Paul and Joe glitter (silver blue glitter)
I set the look with double duty and a coat of Insta Dri for extra shine.
The trick is to add a minimal amount of polish on the sponge which is where I went wrong last time. Anyway. I'm a nail art amature. For best results there are lots of really great tutorials on youtube such as this one which I would advise following instead.
Oh, and does anybody have tips for sorting out nasty dry cuticles? My chewed ones are pretty embarrassing!
