NOTD: Seaweed Sparkles

Happy Sunday, dear readers!  I have another nail polish post for you today!  I’m sorry they’ve gotten so rare… sometimes this hardly seems like a polish blog at all.
And!  According to my picture-labeling system, this is my 150th manicure to be photographed and blogged! It’s not a  very impressive design for a big landmark number, but I’m pretty impressed that I’ve managed to keep painting and photographing and posting this long.


Sorry about the slightly messy application… I painted my nails in the morning before going off to work on scraping paint all day, so they were mostly there for nail armor and not so much for aesthetics.  I think they were chipped by lunchtime…

For this design, I used two coats of Sinful Colors Seaweed, a dupe for OPI Stranger Tides.  I’ve been really liking the glitter gradients from the cuticle lately, so I cut a cosmetic sponge into a pointy/rounded shape to avoid getting glitter all over my fingers and used it to make a gradient (albeit a rather messy one) with China Glaze Ray-Diant.  I was having trouble finding my preferred topcoat, so I used a coat of ORLY Sec ‘n Dry instead… I am not a fan.  Fortunately, I found my good topcoat yesterday, so I won’t have to use the ORLY one when I paint my nails today.

psst… are any of you lovely people on Twitter? Follow me: @PolkaPolish … or you can like Polka Polish on Facebook.  Then maybe I’ll post things there… heh.
