Blogger Spotlight: Tina From Light Of The Moon Nails

Hello friends! Today I have another lovely lady participating in my Blogger Spotlight series: Tina from Light Of The Moon Nails. I hope you enjoy reading about the fun mani she planned for us.

 

The moment I saw Nails Inc. Noho, their leather finish, I knew it would be mine….MINE.  I am bonkers for textured polish…matte…liquid sand…concrete.  You name it, I love it.  So when Cynthia asked me to guest post, I knew that I would do something with this edgy, cool and awesome polish.  But what to do with it?  Why not include one of the (many) polishes that I purchased from Cynthia’s blog sale?   And pay homage to Cynthia’s mani that she did with the same polish. So here goes.

I started with Orly Surreal Satin.  I absolutely LOVE this polish.  Love the coral color….love the finish….love the way it seems to glow from within.  Good luck finding this polish.  It was originally released in 1997.  I think that makes it an antique in the polish world, don’t you?

Next I sponged Ninja Polish The Midas Touch.  This clear polish is filled with actual gold leaf flakes, but unlike a lot of the other gold flake polish out there, is half the price.  You can purchase this polish HERE They also have a silver leaf polish too, if you’re more attracted to silver.

Next I did a half moon with Nails Inc. Noho.  I used hole reinforcers for the half moons, but I think next time I will try to freehand them.  I have such a hard time eyeing where the moons should start, especially on my pinky.

I decided it needed a bit more, so I added some gold heart crystals to a couple of tips.  Look at that awesome finish on Noho.  It has just enough texture, not to much, not too little, and really does remind me of a black leather couch (tee hee).

Finally, because of the crystals, I decided to find out what would happen if I added a top coat.  I used one THIN coat of  OPI Top Coat.  The texture was still there!  Don’t use Seche Vite though.  No texture if you use one of the thicker top coats.  I do, however, like this polish better without a top coat.  One more pic and then Im done.  Thanks again Cynthia!
