Nails of the Week #33: Vegas Round 293758 Nails!

This week I'm featuring an ill conceived manicure idea that was born from the notion to merge two different designs that I've done previously. I took the paint dripping effect that I did for my NYE manicure and slapped a glitter ombre on top of it. Sometimes I look at it and I like it, other times I'm like what was I thinking. Overall it was a very Vegas appropriate look and I matched the colors to match the two dresses I ended up wearing for the nights out. Will I do this again? Probably not because as I'm looking at it now I'm thinking this was a horrible idea, but you be the judge.

For the stripes I used Zoya Anais and Essie Shearling Darling. The Zoya is a dark dark grey, basically a black with a subtle shimmer to it. I actually want to try this color as a stand alone because when I first got it I just thought it was a black but after looking at it that's when I realized there was so much more to it. Shearling Darling is one of my many burgundy wine polishes and it was selected because it was the closet match for my dress. The glitter ombre was done with Color Club Sugarplum Fairy which is actually a really awesome opaque glitter. I have another glitter from Color Club but I definitely want to look into picking up more because it's really awesome and can easily cover an entire nail in glitter with just two coats.
