Purple with a French Crackle

This started out to be a really pretty mani, but I'm not sure about the end result...

I started out with 2 coats of Avon's Loving Lavender (this is fast becoming my favorite go-to purple polish) It is such a nice smooth creamy purple!  I then added 2 coats of Pure Ice - Busted.  It looks kind of like a holo in the bottle, but it goes on more of a fine shimmer.  I still like it. :)  I then added NYC Starry Silver Glitter to the ring finger.  This turned out so pretty!  I should have stopped there.

But I didn't... I taped them off and added some white crackle to the tips.

Let me know what you think!

A Little Touch of Spring!

It has turned so pretty outside and everything is green and gorgeous!  I would be completely happy with this temperature all year long! 75 is perfect!

So here is my spring mani :)

I used mostly Avon's colors because they compliment each other so well
Aqua Fantasy (on my thumb and tip of the ring finger)
Sweet Mint (kind of a lime green)
Cotton Candy
Loving Lavender
The yellow I used was a little no name I have had forever

After I painted each nail a different color, I taped off the tips and added the same colors in a different order.

I wasn't thinking when I took the picture so I don't have a picture of my thumb nail. Sorry.  It is painted with Aqua Fantasy and tipped with Sweet Mint!

Here is a nice pretty spring/Easter mani. I started out with Avon's new Blue Escape. This is a really nice bright blue polish. 2 coats covered nicely. I taped off my tips and added Avon aqua fantasy to all but my ring finger which I taped off on a zig zag pattern to start with. While this was drying I added two different color dot daisys with acrylic paint to all bit the ring finger. I finished off the egg by taping off and adding Avon cotton candy and then a light no name yellow I have had forever. Last, I added dots and lines in white :)

I will try to post one more before Sunday, but if i don't, Happy Easter!
