I accidentally made fairy nails!
I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired, so I just grabbed a few polishes from my ‘untried’ basket, thinking that maybe I could make a wintry, blizzard type thing? I grabbed Pure Ice “Don’t You Wish” and…a nameless Style Essentials polish from a Beauty Box 5 almost 5 years ago!
I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat (one of my faves, but almost empty). I then did two coats of “Don’t You Wish”. My nails are fairly unstained, if a bit yellowed, so I decided I could handle a sheer polish. For fun, I used the nameless polish on my thumb and ring finger. I finished with Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat and was astonished at the result! The matte made the iridescence of “Don’t You Wish” turn blue, except only visible with a light shining on it. I wasn’t able to capture the effect in a picture very well, but they were amazing. I couldn’t stop looking at them.
I don’t know exactly why I decided they were fairy nails – probably because they were white and gauzy and shimmery. The reminded me of Galadriel in Lord of the Rings.
