Frosted Fairy Fingertips......as my daughter called them.

These sparkly beauties elicited smiles & pure excitement from Alex (6). She said they were fairy nails, kind of like tinkerbell! I used a holographic glitter polish from Sally Hansen to bluff the smile line and add a touch of "sweetness" to this Konadicure. So you don't have to have a steady hand for this mani, or flat brush to clean your tips to a beautiful sharp smile line....just fake it & glitter it!!!
Not bad for a drug store find. Both the green and the holo sparkle are from Sally Hansen line found @CVS drugstore. I show it in a blurred picture above so you can see just how enchanting all that sparkle is! Oh and see the fairy on the thumb.
You will need image plate m35, a sheer blush, lime lights (opalescent green) & strobe light (sparkle) both from Salley Hansen, and finally a silver for the design.
How to:
1. Paint sheer blush over entire nail
2. paint your tips with 2 coats of green Lime Lights
3. Paint the sparkles horizontally over the smile line, this will fog the line and make the colors look like one graduates into the other.
4. stamp petal clusters on fingers 2-5 and stamp the fairy on your thumb.
OOOOOH just frosted fairy precious
AND FINALLY I FOUND THE SITE WHERE I COPIED THE BASE NAIL....HERES MY INSPIRATION
