Tis the season for Prom. I’m long past my prom years, but my old neighbour I used to babysit is attending her grade 9 grad this year, which is pretty much a mini prom for those graduating to high school. It’s also a very big deal to them, almost as much as prom is to high school seniors. So when she asked me to do her nails for the big dance, I was more than honored. Her dress was lime green with sparkles, so I went with that theme.
I did a glitter gradient at the bottom of her nails, with an accent nail of pure sparkle. (I also did her toes to match with a glitter gradient.) Her dress has a whole lot of glitter and sparkle going on, so we wanted to do something that would match. These are going to look awesome when the lights at the dance hit them! Just like a disco ball!
The polishes I used for her nails were:
- Pure Ice Wild Thing
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Ice Pop
- NOPI Inner Sparkle.
- Color Club Platinum Record.
- OPI I Snow You Love Me.
- Essie Good to Go Top Coat.
I also did my nails in a similar style beforehand to show her what I was going to do (easier to show in person). So we had matching nails (although I used China Glaze Pink Plumeria as my base color) =).
So what’s your favorite special occasion nail art look?
