The Nail Files: Creative Confetti


The Nail Files Link Up



Here's what I used this week:




And here's the mani:


Two coats of 15 Minutes of Frame and Creative Fantasy, followed up with one coat of Collage Overlay and Whirled Away


I love Creative Fantasy and Collage Overlay but the combo of 15 Minutes of Frame and Whirled Away has left me with much less time on my hands (ha) because all I do is stare at the beauty. The black and white confetti really POPS against the green, and it really is confetti, as the bits don't have any shine. Yeah, I'm just as surprised as you are that I'm in love with a non-sparkly mani (well, two non-sparkly fingers, anyway). ;)


And here's a tip if you're using a polish with larger chunks: Wait until your base coat is completely dry so you can move the confetti bits into place with a toothpick as they don't want to cover evenly. If your base coat isn't totally dry, then it'll smudge and leave streaky lines (grrrrr). 


Thanks to Tara and Vicki for hosting!


And Happy Friday, everyone!

As always, yours nails look fab-u-lous!

I recently bought Whirled Away and mine is pretty thick, so I need to thin it out to make it a bit more manageable. I paired it with CG Flip Flop Fantasy and loved it! I love the green combo with it too!

Seriously, I cannot stop looking at your nails. They're so lovely! Best color combo I've seen in a while.

Thanks for the tip! As you know, I used Revlon's nail art which had chunky glitter that I'm not used to. I hope it comes off easy :/
