31 Day Challenge - Metallic Nails

Hi all, I am on day 8 of the 31 Day Challenge, and still going strong!  Check out my wonderful pals who are also participating, Raine and Jonochi at Lacquer Lily and Just Add Polish.


Day 8 is metallic nails. I had a really difficult time with this challenge. At first I had envisioned a magnetic polish gradient, but I'm too noob at magnetic polish and it looked awful. Next I tried a splatter manicure and I couldn't get that to work without looking like a lumpy mess. I finally settled on painting two foil polishes over black for this metallic look. I'm not super happy with it, but I'd rather not skip a day of the challenge so here it is!

This is Orly Lux and Venique Spike It! over one coat of A England Camelot. Two stamping designs were used for this manicure, and they can both be found on BM-316. I like the predominantly black nails of this manicure better, but it didn't look very "metallic" with such a small amount of metallic polish. As I was looking through my collection, I noticed that it is lacking in foil/metallic shades. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good blue foil? Or a green foil (if that even exists)?


Thanks for reading, and I hope tomorrow's rainbow nails will be more aesthetically pleasing!
