Hey everyone!!! Totally spaced on it being Mardi Gras today, having yesterday off threw off my schedule... I was convinced yesterday was a Sunday, so my apologies, no Mardi Gras nails... :-/ However, I was lucky enough to find a Sally Beauty that was selling the ORLY Foil FX collection, even though I'm thinking they weren't supposed to have them out, since it wasn't in their system, and I can't find anywhere selling it online yet. These colors are amazing. Like AMAZING. I wanted to do a design that would let the colors I chose shine.. literally. I bought all three, Rage, Luxe, and Shine, but only employed 2 in this design. When these polishes are for sale online, I will change the polish names to links like I usually have.
UPDATE: Head2toeBeauty is selling these polishes online, so click on the name of the polish below the pic to take you to the site where they are available for purchase- thanks Mood Puppet for the heads up! :)
I used Orly Rage as a base, which is a gorgeous Rose Gold foil, then sponged a little bit of Orly Luxe (the gold foil) on the tips, and then applied Zoya Raven with Konad Plate m70. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.
When stubborn glitter/shimmer wont leave your cuticles, use a nail cleaning brush to remove after polish is dry and you've cleaned up the cuticles with remover and a brush.
