I'm not very creative with my nails. Honestly, since nail polish is a hobby for me, I don't want to put a lot of effort into it. I get frustrated and lose patience easily when doing things like nail art or elaborated looks. It's not worth the bother for me, however when I saw the "Mood Ring" manicure on All Lacquered Up I had to give it a try. (I suggest you read her blog for more detailed instructions on how to recreate this look)
This is freaking spectacular. Yes, I'm thoroughly impressed and pleased with myself. This is an accomplishment in my eyes.
I used CND Effects Emerald Shimmer, Ice Blue Shimmer, & Violet Shimmer, and layered them over WnW Black Creme. I made a vertical line over the nail using each color. I sandwiched the Emerald Shimmer in the middle. I also overlapped them a bit. This really doesn't have to be perfect at all. You'll notice my lines are not perfect.
What do you get?
Gorgeous!!! This is a stunner. You know what this reminds me of? Mystic Topaz.
It has this pretty iridescent rainbow effect. I love this manicure. Trust me, if you stink at nail art you will find this a piece of cake. It's simple to do, and you'll love the effect. I had a ton of CND Effects on my wishlist for a while, and I'm glad I finally got them. I say they're even worth it just for this look!
