Lit from Within

The day I did this mani it was a grey rainy day.  The kind of day I actually love. I realized it's been too long since I did my kind of dark vampy mani.  Way too many bright happy manis lately!  I return again to under the rock from whence I came.

We start with the silly bottle shot.


This is a jewelry box my mom painted.  Isn't it cool?  She'll probably be mad that I put it on here, but I think it's awesome!  This is Nails Inc Queensgate Mews, Max Factor Fantasy Fire and Nfu Oh #51.

I started with Queensgate.  This is a deep dark delicious raisin creme.  My favorite kind of polish to wear.  Yes you will think it looks black, but it isn't.  The sun was hiding for this part-because it was raining remember?

Please note my almost perfect cuticle line.  I strive to be like the big blogs and their perfection of application.  I think I did pretty good considering the dark colors are so hard to get right!  I am loving this color!

Next I added a layer of #51.  This is a flakie version of Fantasy Fire.  Here is that step.

Oh yeah I am loving this!  I then topped it off with my funky in the original Queensgate Mews.  Here are the awesome results.

Doesn't this look like it's lit from within?  That's what I see.  There is a stunning green shimmer in certain light but I took a billion pictures and couldn't capture it.  You'll have to trust me.  It's a stunning forest green.  It happened while I was driving going 75mph and I thought damn I wish I could take a picture of this right now! Good thing I didn't try right?

I am in love with this mani.  It is my kind of dark and vampy.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
