I am way over high school (in age, that is) but tomorrow I am going to prom. I will be attending an all ages, special needs prom as an escort to some fun girls who are attending. So, of course, I had to do my nails accordingly. I'm rocking an updated 80's theme with a vintage dress and shoes and I matched my nails to suit. I am so excited about how they turned out (hence the crazy amount of pictures), but more excited about PROM!!!
I first painted my nails with China Glaze Frostbite. Then I sponged the following colors on top: China Glaze Liquid Leather, Heli-Yum, L8R G8R, Turned Up Turquoise and Essie Perky Purple. I added dimension by adding glitter. I used two coats of Seche Vite to finish it off!

I first painted about half of my nail with China Glaze In Awe Of Amber. I then added So Easy Stripe Rite in Black for the feathers. I painted over the black with China Glaze Sexy In The City and Coconut Kiss for the purple and blue iridescent look of feathers. I also added OPI Goldilocks Rocks towards the edge to make a more gradient gold look. I painted over everything with China Glaze Golden Enchantment for the light sparkle. I added sparse glitter to the end and then topped it all with a coat of Seche Vite.
