31DC2013 Day 5; Matte and shiny layered in blue

Since today is blue according to the challenge I've got something blue to show you. I honestly first didn't have a clue what I wanted to do and then this just came during the process. I used a matte blue metallic polish and a shiny blue shimmer polish and just painted it in layers and let it dry between. I used no top coat for this because I wanted to keep the matte and shiny even though the difference probably would have shown since the shades aren't perfectly similar. I ended up feeling very content with this and I'll probably wear it more times and in more color combinations since it was very simple to do and still elegant in my eyes.







 Polishes used:
HM - Blue Metal
ZTIZ nail polish - mörkblå/94

    1. Tack! Ja, jag gillade också det. Matt och blankt är riktigt snyggt ihop helt enkelt. :D

    1. Thank you! Yea, I think so too, in first glance it might look just blue but looking closer there's both matte and shiny and I really liked that! :)

  3. Jättesnygg kombination, och den tekniken är ju himla trevlig, varierbar, enkel och snygg på samma gång.

    Jag sitter och funderar på hur min blå tolkning ska bli idag. har inte riktigt bestämt mig än. :)

    1. Tack! Ja, jag håller med, såna här typer av nail art's är ju speciellt trevliga när de går snabbt att göra men ändå ser arbetat ut för någon som inte har koll.

      Men jag håller med, inte lätt alltid att komma på vad man ska göra. Denna kom ju nästan av sig själv. De finns nog andra som har gjort den innan mig men jag kollade inte på något när jag gjorde den.

    1. Tack! Ja, som handen i handsken, eller nagellacket på nageln! ;) Tyckte det också passade min nagelform.

  5. As per usual this is GORGEOUS! I love the subtlety between the blues and I always love shiny/matte combos! I feel like I need that metallic blue! As for the comment you left me I understand what its like. I'd love to have a polish shelf or cabinet but sadly storage boxes will have to do until I have my own place! Painting your nails on a sofa still sounds a hell of a lot easier then me painting my nails on the bed with a cardboard box table, Haha! xx

    1. Thank you! :D Yes, I really liked the outcome, both the colors and matte n shiny :) HM actually got three of them, this blue, purple and silver and they're all awesome, I was just going to show them on the blog but then I started with this challenge!
      Haha, you really beat me with that cardboard box in the bed! Well, it's obvious it's possible to create nail art's no matter where it's done, however it would be so much more comfortable with a work space for it! ;D

  7. Åh, jag vill ha dom där matta H&M lacken. Men mitt H&M säljer inte smink. SÅ HIMLA IRRITERANDE! De ser ju så fina ut!

    1. Men jäkla hm! Hur kan ett hm inte ha en sminkavdelning, det är ju den som är bäst i hela butiken ^^ iaf om man älskar nagellack! :) Om de finns kvar på mitt hm så skulle jag kunna langa dem o skicka i brev om det känns som att du inte får tag dem på ett smidigare sätt. :)

    1. Tack! :D Ja, tyckte att det blev coolt med bara blått men att kontrasten gjordes mest av matte och blankt! :D
