Samurai Glow

A little bit ago I decided to try a bit of nail art. I saw a fantastic look done by Marta of ChitChatNails and attempted to replicate it with a little twist!

Sinful Colors Zeus, Diamond Cosmetics Oh Tiff!, and Sonnetarium Samurai Princess & Never Glow Up

Marta's nails look completely flawless, but I was pretty pleased with how mine turned out as well! The beautiful dusty lavender is Sinful Colors Zeus and I used Diamond Cosmetics Oh Tiff! as a base on my accent nail and for the dots, and Sonnetarium Never Glow Up over my ring finger and Samurai Princess (similar to CtD) on the rest. Samurai Princess was very easy to apply, no fishing for glitters! And it behaved pretty well for bar glitter. Never Glow Up had a strong and lovely bluish glow. It is not very opaque which is why I decided to layer it over another aqua.

It took a while for me to want to try the black & white glitter combo, but it is such a fun and different look-- I really enjoyed it!

Sonnetarium's polishes are for sale in her shop.
