Deconstructed Mani

I got an e-mail a few weeks back from a 12-year-old girl from California. Jessa (that's her name) sent me instructions on how to do a deconstructed look. This is how it goes:

* basecoat
* a coat of black nail polish; wait for it to dry
* a coat of silver nail polish + dab it with a sponge while it's still wet
* topcoat

Why not. Let's give it a try. =) I used ManGlaze Matte is Murder + one coat of China Glaze Millenium. And a sponge, of course.

I like it! =)



Thank you for your suggestion, Jessa! =)

Thanks for looking!

  33. Brilliant idea! Looks fantastic. Does look like antique silver or a mirror that the silver is coming off the back. I believe it's called foxed.
