Stormy Cement

This manicure was inspired by a beautiful polish from Girly Bits, Stormy Skies.

Sally Hansen Wet Cement + Finger Paints Motley + Pure Ice Heartbreaker

I think the blue/green & purple flecks in Motley and the green shimmer in Heartbreaker contrast really nicely against the pale grey, and give the look of an overcast and stormy blue-grey sky. The shimmer in Girly Bits Stormy Skies is actually much brighter and denser though, and I really love the almost jelly-like look the polish has, which has more blue in it as well. So while I think this manicure is similar in color, well, that's really it. :P

I was actually incredibly lucky enough to win a giveaway of Pam's including Hippity Hop and a polish of my choice, so of course I chose the amazing Shift Happens, a spectacular color changing topcoat. Honestly I wasn't as excited about Hippity Hop until I saw it in person-- wow! Such a gorgeous and delightfully springtime-y assortment of glitters. Here it is over Models Own Indian Ocean; love this combo!
