This manicure was a result of having a new pastel pink and wanting to make it pop. I don't know why pink and gray make me think punk rock, but it does (and hence the name play). I like the new color and I like this manicure.
I painted three coats of OPI Mod About You adding LA Splash Cosmetic nail glitter in Red Heart Spangle (not adding any of the large hearts). I sealed with a coat of Seche Vite, then added China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Cracked Concrete and sealed with one more coat of Seche Vite.

I haven't water marbled in a while and it was clear with the results of this manicure. It's not that I didn't like the color combo, but I kept nicking my manicure, smudging my nails. It was a hot mess but every manicure deserves to be seen.

Tip Two: Adding an iridescent glitter makes purple glow
Tip Three: Don't expect purple polish to love you as much as you love it. I don't know if it's just me, but I find my purples have the least wear of any of my colors. They chip faster than most. I guess it's just a lesson that you can't always hold onto beauty.
For this manicure I painted two coats of Zoya Mira on my tips. I cleaned the edges with a soaked Q-tip in acetone remover and then added a layer of LA Splash Cosmetics nail glitter in Dry Ice. I painted two coats of CND Super Shiney over the entire nail to finish.
I painted two coats of China Glaze Flyin' High and on all fingers but my left pointer, I added my own blend of glitters--so many randoms I can't even say what they are, but I do know that the larger sparkles are from a kit I recently purchased from Esther's Nail Center. I used CND Super Shiney for the top coat.

I painted three coats of China Glaze Poetic, added Konad image from disc m 60 with China Glaze Millennium and glitter on my ring and thumb fingers with LA Splash Cosmetics in Pot O' Gold. I finished the manicure with one coat of CND Super Shiney.
