Hey guys!!! It's Cinderella's turn! You can see my nails I did last year when I ran the Princess Half here. This year I wanted to do something different. To me Cinderella is very ethereal, fluffy, sparkly, and dainty. I knew I wanted to do a variation on a french manicure for her, but I was doubtful because I am in the process of growing out a broken corner on my middle finger. I waited a week, filed them down as short as I could, and hoped for the best. Here is proof, that, even with super nubs you can rock a french!
I took pics as I did this for a tutorial, but forgot to take a pic of the last step, then decided it was unnecessary because I can just talk you through it :)
When it's dry, I added a shiny topcoat. I felt like Glistening Snow dried a little dull for me. Then, I took the brush from OPI Solitare (a textured sparkly white, you could always use a white creme for this as well) and just coated the tips. I did not use tape, just free hand. Only allow half the brush to cover your nail and go sideways, does that make sense?
Then, when that's dry, use a black striper to make a thin line as shown. This represents her collar necklace-y thing.
And that's it! Simple, delicate, whimsical. Love.
Oh. And SPARKELEH.

Here's a quick video I took with my phone indoors to show all the holographic wonder that is Glistening Snow. It just doesn't translate in pictures. Boo!
