Today I have to show you a mani featuring one of my new KBShimmers: Sugar Plum Faerie ^^ This is of course not a new polish, but it's been sitting untried for a loooooong time and took a mammoth two months to reach me, so this is a BIG DEAL!
Firstly, let me show you my attempted art for this week - a drip mani (oh yeaaaaah, crossed another technique off my list). Check it:

I loved this mani but found it really hard to capture on camera :/ It sorta looked like a quirky Xmas pudding to me, what with the glitter base and shimmery drips (Rimmel Black Cherries) :-) Om nom nom nom nom.
WOOHOO! Short post today (I'm getting better - see!) ^^ Finally, I will of course show you the base colour - the gorgeous Sugar Plum Faerie:

I think this may be my new favourite polish. The glitter colour combo is wicked and the polish applied like a total dream; it's the first KBShimmer I've owned with a formula that can only be described as utter perfection - and my others really have a great formula, so that's saying something! Christy got this one bang on!
|*prideful parting shot* (sorry about the colour distortion!)|
What do you think of this mani? I always thought that it would be difficult to do a drip mani but it was surprisingly simple - all it took was a marker pen lid (aka my dotting tool) and a steady-ish hand to join the dots up :-) I will DEFINITELY be trying this again!
What colours would you choose for a drip mani? Have you ever done an adventurous polka dot/striped drip mani? Those still look hella scary to me!
Thanks for reading and 'til next time, curlettes ^^
