I chose to do a mani of Sinful Colors Cross My Heart (yea, guess who hauled 13 new Sinfuls at the $.99 sale...oopsy) and just do a glitter mosaic accent nail. I used my Mash nail art tweezers to pick up and place the glitters (which are translucent yellow iridescent hexes) onto a wet coat of Gelous. My placement is no where near as awesome and precise as Ms. PolishAlltheNails' is, of course...After I placed each glitter, I applied another coat of Gelous to smooth everything out.
Cross My Heart is a red-orange jelly polish and it is just so bright and saturated and juicy looking. Because I have some pretty nasty blue staining on my nails, I started with a base coat of white polish (Wet N Wild French White Cream), followed by 2 coats of Cross My Heart. The white base minimized the jelly squishiness but amped up the brightness of this polish, so I guess it was an even trade.
Expect to see more glitter mosaic madness from me soon!
