I received this Sally Hansen Gem Crush polish in a grab bag from facebook, which was excellent timing as I had recently finished my bottle of Barry M Red Glitter, so I needed another full coverage red glitter before Christmas anyway. I do wish I'd waited a little bit longer to do this mani though, as I picked up Shimmer Polish - Lucie a few days later which is mostly silver glitter with a few bits of red in it. Missed opportunity for some reverse colour accent nails which would have been pretty cool! Oh well, you live, you learn!
I used 1 coat of Rimmel Lycra Pro - Heart on Fire (click for swatches), and 2 coats of Sally Hansen Gem Crush - Cha-Ching, then just freehanded the chevrons with some silver acrylic paint. That's why they're a bit wonky : D
This is also the last mani I have done in advance for the challenge. Work has totally ruined the skin under my fingers, and I had to chop my nails right down so I could try and help them heal. : ( So the next photos will be of short nails again, and my thumb will be absent as it's still looking gross!
Don't forget to have a look at what the other, more talented ladies have done for this prompt at the bottom : D
