Nail Art of the Week - Gunmetal and Purple

Once again I have drawn inspiration from ChalkboardNails blog.  I swear that blog is like crack for nail addicts!!! LOL.  Truly a great place to get inspiration from and get great reviews and swatches of the latest nail polish on the market.  Here is my take on one of her recent designs.  She used a true silver polish with a holographic bar glitter in it.  Here is the link for her Original Post.  When I looked thru my nail polish collection I was struck by how nice this Gunmetal grey looked next to the purple so I decided to go with that color combo.  I painted my nails first with a coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Cure as a base coat and followed with one coat of Sally Hansen XTreme Wear in Gunmetal.

Next I applied a stripe down the middle of each nail with Wet n Wild -Wild Shine polish in Eggplant Frost.

I then painted a glitter polish - NYX Nail Polish in Dynamic Glitter over the Eggplant Frost. 

Finally I followed with my favorite top Coat - Sally Hansen Dries Instantly Top Coat.

Simple yet stunning results and I love the way the colors look together!  Thanks so much for reading!
