Wishing Well manicure

 I'm terribly sorry everyone for vanishing off of the face of the earth. I've been completely scatterbrained and while I've been doing nail art on the regular I have not had the focus to create art blog post for you lovely readers. I had quite a bit of fun with this sponged look, I tested out the technique of soaking your makeup sponge in water, wringing it out and then using it for sponging and found it did help with the sponge eating all the lacquer! I layered my polishes in a flame like pattern on the sponge starting from base to tip with: (my first non glittery polish I've bought since becoming a lacquerista) Liquid Leather by China Glaze, Watch It Glitter By ORLY (love this color, found a similar color by Essie but this was 1.50 less and had more polish!), finally Lux (not only my first ORLY color but my first gold polish) by ORLY. It took several coats of sponging to get an opaque look but I really love how it turned out. I then did a coat of my new favorite color that I plan to NEVER run out of (even though I hate the chosen name) Love Each Other by ORLY it looks like a bottle of rainbow moonstone!  Btw I apologize for the blur in the camera but at the time of the manicure I didn't have a working card reader for my normal camera so I used my cell and honestly, the cell caught the colors better in my opinion!

Also a side-note, I will be re-running my contest and revamping it a bit next week since I was unable to reach the winner. So stay tuned so you can have a chance to win and current entries will be allowed to be modified to be entered in this contest.
