Greetings, lovely people! Today, as probably quite a few of you know, is another Polish Days event, organised by the wonderful Hannah of Polly Polish. This month's theme is a festive one, and that is 'Bling'! This is inspired by holiday-season parties and all things sparkly, so naturally it's pretty much perfect for me!
The design I have done is one I had in mind as soon as I heard the theme, and it was probably the most time-consuming mani I have ever done. I love it though! I'm sure most of you are aware of the recent craze for glequins - glitter sequins - so I thought it was time to give mine an airing. I went for a simple honeycomb look because the hexagons tessellate nicely. Warning: if you have some sunglasses to hand, you might want to put them on now... SPARKLES AHEAD.
I used a base coat of Rimmel London 60 Seconds - Black Out for all of my nails, and then on my left hand I applied silver glequins using a toothpick and some cheap clear polish. On my right hand I used gold glequins (apologies for the quality of these pictures, I can't hold my non-dominant hand steady enough to get a good picture with my crappy little camera >_>):
The glequins I used are from Born Pretty Store - they come in little pots with absolutely loads inside, no need to worry about using them up quickly. Even with this mani which used hundreds of the things, I barely made a dent in my current stock!
I think I managed to fulfil the 'bling' theme pretty well, and it was worth spending all the time on these just to see people's reactions, which were very positive and quite disbelieving =P
What do you guys think of these? Are you involved in Polish Days too? Anyone can take part and I highly recommend it, just click here to sign up.
