Today I'm wearing a black and silver skittle manicure that is almost completely copied from a french blog called Vernis en folie (about 2/3 down the page).
|indoors, no flash|
Google Translate did something awful to the post, but I did manage to figure out the black that is used by Bé is Il était un vernis Paint It Black. I don't have that one, so I used OPI Lady in Black (aka Black Onyx) instead. Also I didn't have the image she stamped (would love to know what plate that is on btw) so I used a floral image on a MoYou plate. Oh, and I didn't have black studs either so I made dots using polish.
This is what I did: I started out by painting my thumb, index and pinky with two coats of OPI Lady in Black. My middle finger and ring finger are coated in three thin layers of Il était un vernis Juggling Glass Balls. After that I grabbed a large dotting tool and made a dot with Juggling Glass Balls on my pinky and one in Lady in Black on my middle finger. I took a deep breath, wiped almost all the polish from my brush and added the thinnest of coats of Juggling Glass Balls on my index (I actually had to redo this nail three times until I was happy, each time wiping the brush even more). Last thing I did was stamp my ring finger with Lady in Black and MoYou Pro XL 22 and add a coat of Seche Vite on all nails.
Juggling Glass Balls is a dream! It's sheer enough to be a topper (as you can see on my index) but three thin coats make it completely opaque. Combined with a thin-to-medium brush, a rubbery cap that was very comfortable to hold, and of course a formula that almost applies itself I can't think of anything that needs improvement for this polish and I can't wait to see what 2015 will bring for the brand (and what damage it will do to my bank account ;)
There are the polishes I used:

Last but not least... this is the first manicure I did for the SBBNailChallenge and I think I can scratch out two challenges at the same time: 29 - recreate someone else's manicure and 37 - skittle.
I can't stop looking at my nails, I love how this turned out! Hope you like it too :)
Il était un vernis Juggling Glass Balls was bought from The Nailista Shop.
