Nail Art: Color Club Revealed and Milani Gems



Color Club Revealed (2 coats) Milani Gems (1 coat) 1 more coat of Revealed

You guys know I'm not that into nail art. It's not that I don't like it, I'm just really lazy and bad at it. While this isn't technically nail art, I think it is much more artsy than a normal polish. I can't take credit for this creation since I saw something similar posted on the Nail Board on MUA. The base is made of 2 coats of Color Club's Revealed. It's best to have a sheerer polish so you can actually see the glitter through it. After the 2 coats of Revealed is a single layer of Milani Gems (the one without the pink glitter). To create the Funfetti-like appearance, you put one thin layer of Revealed over the glitter to create this fun combination. I'm loving this so much! I think this would work with other colors, but you have to make sure it is sheer. I liked the pink because it reminds of a cupcake! What do you think?

Thanks for the comments! I'm glad you're enjoying it as much as I am! Aaminah, I wanted to like that Lippmann polish, but it was just too sheer for my liking (especially for $18!).

I love how you layered this! It actually looked like you used a dotting pen when I first looked at it, so it is very nail art-y :)

I'm following you :)

I do one similar to this with either Deb. Lippmann Naked or Essie Sand Tropez and my overlay is done with Deb Lippmann Up In the Air. It's such a fresh look and not too over the top if you need to be in a professional environment that frowns on chartreuse green polishes!
