I have a broken gold eye shadow that I’ve been waiting to use. I saw this awesome idea on Pinterest where you place the eye shadow powder on your finger above the cuticle bed and blow it on to wet nail polish. Needless to say, when I tried this it didn’t work 😦 I think it’s because my powder was quite clumpy and moist, it didn’t move at all when I blew it. Fail.
So plan B: dry nail art brush. I just dabbed the powder starting from the top and working down toward the tip. I think it looked quite pretty, despite my initial hiccup 🙂
I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “Flirt”, a crushed Aritaum gold eye shadow and OPI top coat. Here’s how it turned out 🙂 (There is still quite a bit of glittery eye shadow around my hands that I just couldn’t clean off – one shower and it’ll be gone. Just excuse the glittery hands 🙂 )
