As you might have seen, Marta from ChitChat Nails is holding a contest, where she's looking for a mani to go with her pretty and oh so festive dress. Now I like contests and seeing all the entries, but I've never actually entered one myself, because I'm sometimes a bit insecure and I often get way too many ideas as well! This time was no exception, and I ended up with my placemat covered in black, silver and glitters. There were a few options that I liked, but I started late and lacked time, so I went for a simple sponged mani. Sponging isn't something I do often, and black and silver aren't my usual kinda colors either, so this contest made me try out a different kind of mani. And I'm glad I gave it a go, because I like the outcome and it reminded me that I should sponge more often!
I used Essence Black Is Back (2 coats) and very gently sponged with a silver foil (China Glaze Cheers To You), then added some rhinestones and top coat.
And here it is without the rhinestones. Tomorrow Marta will post all the entries, I'm sure she received a lot of sparkly, glittery and festive manis and I can't wait to see them all together! Thanks for holding this fun contest Marta :)
Thanks for stopping by and take care!
