Swirling Vine Glittery Manicure

Hello there, and Happy Easter!  Sorry for my inactivity lately.  I’ve spent the past week frantically trying to get my taxes done, so I had to put everything on hold.  I did have enough time to make this pretty manicure, inspired by my feeling of being trapped by a deadline.

I started by painting all my nails white.

b.m.c. nail lacquer in Angelic White provides excellent coverage in just 2 coats.

I used a glitter powder from Born Pretty Store to turn my nails into a sparkly teal color.  I applied Born Pretty Soak Off Gel Top Coat over the fully dried white nail polish, cured it for about 15 seconds, then used a sponge applicator to apply the glitter to the tacky surface.

Born Pretty Holographic Blue Laser Powder is beautifully shimmery and fully covers up the white base color.

After dusting off the excess powder with a fan brush, I applied another layer of gel top coat to seal in the sparkle.

I love the color and the holographic shine in this powder.

Because I didn’t have a lot of time to do my nails, I stamped a vine design from the plate below onto my nails with Ya Qin An stamping polish in White.

Born Pretty Store BPX-L018 plate has lots of leaves. I opted to use the design in the middle row, 3rd from the right.

The finished look is quite elegant, and I love the white and teal color combination.

Swirling vines in colors perfect for Easter.

I’m hoping to get back on track with the blog soon, so stay tuned for more nail art and reviews!  Happy polishing!
