Lilac Berry!

Hey lovesssssss! I am pretty exhausted, I worked from 9am to 7pm, but I wanna update before going to bed. Bear with me if I haven’t visited your blogs and returned comments, I feel like I don’t have enough time whenever I work for 10 hours. I’ll try to finish and reciprocate tonight thou ♡ Anyway, I wanna share another nail art I made just now. I just bought this new color today by Sinful Colors, got inspired and thought of playing with it. I’m calling this Lilac Berry because the one from ELF is called Lilac & one from Sinful Colors is Winterberry, cute names right? Love em! This is sorta like a gradient effect nail art I guess, but I really think that it could also be a galaxy-ish look. Don’t you? Oh well, this one is very easy to do as well! and of course a lot of fun! The pictures are not too good, I have pretty bad lighting at night. I hope you guys like it! :kiss:

Things I used ♡

★ Base Coat
★ ELF’s Lilac (You can use any light purple)
★ Sinful Colors Winterberry (Any dark purple will do)
★ Etude House’s Glitter (Grab any glitter you can find)
★ Sponge
★ Small bowl/container
★ Top Coat/ Nail Hardener
★ Q-Tips & Nail Polish Remover

How to? ♡

♥ Apply your base coat.
♥ Then apply two coats of the light purple. Let it dry.
♥ Pour a little bit of the dark purple nail polish into a small container.
♥ Take your sponge and dip it in.
♥ Pat the sponge onto your nails. Keep on going til you get the desired color. Let it dry.
♥ Now, take the glitter and paint the tips of your nails.
♥ Lastly, apply your top coat!

And you’re done! ♡

Sinful Colors is one of my favorite brands as well! They cost $2 each bottle just like ELF and has a great quality. I don’t think it’s available in the Philippines, but I really wish it does because this brand is pretty amazing. Let me know what you guys think about this nail art. Also if you decide to try it, definitely show me the outcome. I would love to see it! Xoxo
