Blue Nail Art Sponging Step by Step w/Konad M41


I did this before Chris's Challenge Tag and I didn't get to post it yet since I wanted to get the challenge post up. I did this on top of the Nubar Baby Blue and I was keeping in the Blue theme for Autism Awareness.  I did this with a make-up sponge and yes it got everywhere but that's part of the fun and you can always go back and clean up. I gotta say the glitter was not easy to clean up took a little bit of time, but hey after i washed my hands a couple of times it was fine. Also you'll notice my stamping was not the best. I was in a rush putting this design together and i think i did it all in less than 45 mins and that was for both hands including the clean up, which took a while! I had a biking date with a friend and i wanted to make sure my nails were more interesting than just the nubar baby blue. hah yes i was sorta late but she was as well so it all worked out.

okay enough chatter here's the nails and what i did....

Sunlight
Blazing blue, unknown, Pure Energy, Sapphire, and Disco Blue Glitter
I took Pure Energy and stamped it on

Then I took my Darker Blue and stamped in the opposite corners
Then I stamped on the Glitters. I put Disco Blue Glitter over the darker blue and the Sapphire glitter over pure energy 
I finished it off by stamping on a butterfly off konad plate m41 with Blazing Blue. Clean up was tough hah the glitter was very stubborn!! 
Shade, here the glitter comes alive! 
Here's  a little magic trick! From Blue to Green! How did that happen?? 
Answer: 1 coat of Celtic Sun! I think i like this better than the Blue!

  5. Thank you guys! I liked the blue too, but i just felt like i had been wearing blue forever with this mani and the last several manicures that when i put that on and it changed it to something besides blue it was like woah, something different!! Plus it's great to know that adding a sheer color on top gave me such a different result. I never thought of doing that. Great for when you're getting tired of a manicure and you want something newish feeling!

    It's pretty green, but I prefer the blue. But blue is my favorite color so I'm biased in the matter. Both ways are awesome. :)
