I painted three coats of China Glaze Frostbite then added a layer of loose glitter from Yofi in Blue Angel and used clear polish and a thin brush to apply Cina Glitter Metallic Jewels . I sealed with a clear coat of polish Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Flawless and a top coat of Seche Vite.

I coated three times with China Glaze Ingrid. I then painted the arches of the feathers with Free Love and Ulta Angel Baby. I added the feather lines with China Glaze Evening Seduction and coated with two coats of Seche Vite.

For the manicure, I first painted two coats of Zoya Sarah on my nail. I then marbled Sarah and Ulta Black Diamond. After that marble dried and the water was dry off the nail bed, I marbled with China Glaze OMG (silver holo) and Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Flawless (clear) over the previous marble. I used one coat of Seche Vite to seal the manicure and add lots of shine!

First I painted two coats of China Glaze Lemon Fizz. I then marbled (again, without swirling, just letting the concentric circles create lines) with Twenty-Four K and Foxy. The Deathly Hallow symbol was painted on with Ulta Black Diamond. I coated once with Seche Vite.

1) I started this manicure with a different idea in mind (it snowed here and I was thinking about doing a manicure regarding that, but my idea didn't quite pan out). I even started the painting and designing of that manicure, but it was a fail I didn't want to live with so I started over.
2) Once the idea was put into motion (a striped-type water marble over black polish), I didn't really like the look, so I had to change it by double marbling over the initial spaced stripes for the look you see now.
3) I'm not sure I even really like the result.
I really do like the double marbling look/idea and I have had awesome results before as evidence here (the first pic). These polishes are also really pretty and the dark black that peeks through and gives these two bright chrome polishes a greater dimension is also nice. But since I'm still undecided, I guess you can cast your vote and I'll see if this is a winner or not....
The look was made by first painting each nail with three coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Midnight In NY. I then made a striped marble (by not swirling the colors in the water) with China Glaze Cheers To You, Zoya Cyrstal and Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Flawless alternating between color and clear to make thin stripes--or so I hoped. I then just used Crystal and Cheers To You in a traditional marble and dunked my nails again. After I was all cleaned up from all the excess polish, I sealed the manicure with one coat of Seche Vite.

I needed a quick manicure for my newly chopped, short nails. Konad is always the answer!
