I Love Nail Polish Cygnus Loop meets Pixie Dust

I haven’t used any I Love Nail Polish brand nail polish in ages and it kinda seems like a crime since the name of the brand pretty much describes my entire life. I grabbed two of my favorites – ILNP Cygnus Loop and ILNP Pixie Dust for this mani. Oh, and I grabbed hot pink rhinestones. Because pink. Because rhinestones. Need I say more?

I started off with two coats of I Love Nail Polish Pixie Dust. This is a light pink linear holo. If I could only wear one finish for the rest of my life, it would be holo, no contest.

Then, I used my striping tape to tape off criss-cross. Then, I painted a generous coat of I Love Nail Polish Cygnus Loop over it, then removed the tape. While it was still wet, I used my tweezers to drop hot pink rhinestones under the criss-cross. Then, I added a healthy dose of top coat to seal it all in.

 

ILNP Cygnus Loop is a duochrome wonder. It shifts from dark purple to greenish brown. It’s really quite mesmerizing.
