Hello beauties & happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s week is off to a lovely start. I feel like January weeks are just so blah. It’s cold…. uneventful… the days seem to drag. So I’m once again breaking up the January blahs with another fun purple design.
We all know that I’ve been having a purple moment lately, & I thought I would keep it going with the purple-y design I wore this past weekend. Originally, this was supposed be a drag marble, & that was the technique I used to create the blending between shades. & then obviously I added some gold glitter shards, for an extra little bit of sparkle.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Late Night Lilac
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pep-plum
- Essence Cosmetics Steeling the Scene
- Dotting tool (I always use mine from NailStuff.ca — Dotting Tool Trio)
So honestly, I’m not 100% sure if I love these or if they kind of turned out as a fail. They definitely did end up the way I had intended. I actually wanted to create something more like this design, but the polishes were not agreeing with me so this is how it ended up. Sally Hansen XW Late Night Lilac is actually a super runny jelly glitter–which is beautiful–but not the most ideal for drag marble designs I guess. Maybe if I had used Pep-plum as my base instead of Late Night Lilac it would have worked out better.
& then obviously I added some gold glitter just for a little something extra… because I feel like it needed some sparkle. The two shades were beautiful together, just missing something.
What do you think about this drag marble fail? Do you like these colours together? Let me know what you think of this design down below, & what colours you think I should try next time for a better result.
Have a fantastic day loves!
