I used two Pretty & Polished colors as my base; Olgite, a shimmering, duochromey blue with pale purpley-pink at certain angles, and Concoction, a deep purple jelly with holo glitter and iridescent flakies and small glitter (I KNOW, IT'S AMAZING).
Here, I have 2 coats of Olgite:
Next, I put 2 coats of Concoction on half of each nail:
This polish is sheerer than Olgite, but two coats still provided good coverage (at least of the color of Olgite). This polish is pretty darn gorgeous, these pictures don't do it justice. It's got a great depth, and the smidgeon of flakies in the polish give it a special twist! I'll do lone swatches of Concoction soon, so you can really see how it pops!
Finally, paint a wiggly line down the center of your nail. You can do this a few ways; add strips using the brush of the polish, add strips using a nail art brush, add a wavy line with a nail art brush, add zig-zags. As long as it kind of looks like a seismograph, you've done your job!
I'm really honored to be able to participate in Artsy Wednesday, and you should all DEFINITELY check out these other, very talented Artsy Wednesday participants.
