The Tin Man On The Blue Highway
Today I have a blue and silver mani to show you.
As base color I used Catrice Blue Highway (Hip Trip Limited Edition), a navy blue polish with a subtle cobalt shimmer. Formula was good, I used two medium coats for opacity.
On top of Blue Highway I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness The Tin Man, a clear base with bits of crumpled silver foil. It's like the silver brother of OPI's The Man With The Golden Gun and other gold leaf topcoats. I dabbed the polish on the nail to get the foil pieces to spread a little better.
For a smooth finish, I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. Please excuse the massive bubbling, my bottle of Glitter Food is almost empty and tends to get pretty thick and stringy towards the end, I forgot to add some polish thinner before this mani...
Nail Pattern Boldness polishes are available on Etsy and at Llarowe.
