I love a good neutral every now and then, even though brights are more my style! If I'm being honest, I've been wanting to neutrals a bit more often since the release of KBShimmers's Office Space Collection....which makes no sense as I have no office polish restrictions! But I guess the collection brought neutrals to the forefront a little, at least in my mind! This mani is inspired by nails my daughter was wearing not too long ago; she goes to the salon and usually gets a neutral nail with a sparkle accent as she does have a neutral polish policy at her work. These nails mimicked the ones she came home with that night although the stamping doesn't make them all that neutral looking! Here's what I came up with!
Started with a base of two coats of DND 487 Fairy Dream with accent of KBShimmer A Hint of Manila. I picked up the DND set that is a polish with matching gel polish; this is the nail polish. (I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the matching gel polish as I don't do gel polish....but that's another story!)
Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.
Stamped using an image from XY-B01 (acrylic plate) using FunkyFingers Dark Knight.
I painted metal studs metal to match the stamping, then added to accent. Thanks so much to Pretty Pittie who had commented on a prior post for the tip to put the metal studs on the lint roller sheet to secure and then paint them. I did this here and it worked perfectly! Look for more matchy studs to polish mani's in the future now that I can easily paint them!
Applied final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.
I have another request! I'm in love with the mix of glitter/holo in this KBShimmer polish; can anyone recommend something similar but in a charcoal/dark grey finish? Thanks so much!
Thanks for looking!
