FingerFood's Theme Weeks - Cute

Polishes used: Glam Polish Twister, Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Razzle-Berry and Sally Hansen Ion

This week the FingerFood challenge is all about cuteness. Now, I can't draw puppies, or kittens, or cupcakes - but I can draw googly eyes like a pro. So, I present to you my cute manicure:

FingerFood's Cute challenge - rainbows and googly eyes all around
I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Ion - a wonderful neutral crème that I love using as a base for nail art. On my accent finger, I opted for two coats of Sally Hansen Razzle-Berry - a deep saturated blue texture. I snagged both of these polishes for £1 at Poundland, along with other Sally Hansen finds. I then added a coat of Glam Polish Twister on my remaining fingers. I love that neon topper to bits.

It's staring right into your soul :D
To finish the look off, I topped the glitter with Orly Matte Top coat, and dotted the eyes with OPI Alpine Snow. The pupils and smile were added with a black Sharpie. I really love using Sharpies for nail art - much better than nail art pens, and they come in metallic colours as well!

I loved wearing this manicure, and I got a lot of compliments for it. I really need to use Twister more often - it's such a happy polish :)

Polishes I used:
  • Glam Polish Twister - A mix of neon matte pink, yellow, blue and green hexes in three sizes in a clear base. The glitter payoff is amazing, each nail was done with a single coat - although some dabbing may be needed to achieve even coverage. The glitters lay flat, the base takes a while to fully dry, and the removal is as one would expect with a dense glitter polish.
  • Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Razzle-Berry - an intense, saturated blue texture polish without any glitter. Easy to apply and opaque in two medium coats. I wasn't convinced about crème textures, but decided to give it a go for a pound. I have to say I enjoyed wearing this a lot - I love the blue, the texture is interesting, and removal fairly easy. I heard that it stains, so I used a double base coat layer and had no issues after 2 days of wear. I did find it dried fairly slowly, but this may be because of the extra base coat.
  • Sally Hansen Ion - a cool neutral crème, ideal as a nail art base. The brush is wide and perfect for my nails, the polish was very easy to apply and opaque in two coats (although if I was wearing it alone I'd have gone for three), and it dried fairly fast. I'm a fan of all Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes.
Thanks for looking!
