Oh Mon Dieu Part Deux - Shimmer & Tri Polish Tuesday - July - Stripes

Hi all!

During the month of July the Oh Mon Dieu Part Deux (OMD2) Nail Art Challenge is hosted by Brijit from Brijits Digits, Jacqui from Craftynail, Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish! and Lindsay from Nail That Accent!. There are awesome prizes to be won just for joining up, no judging or voting involved! For more information how to enter read this page.

Today's mani is a double one once again, because it is Tri Polish Tuesday! So I used a green, pink and purple shimmer polishes *winks*. Totally met both challenges' prompts *nods*.

From left to right:
  • Essence - LE Beauty Beats - 02 I'm Backstage
  • Essence - LE Beauty Beats - 04 Groupie At Heart
  • Essence - LE Beauty Beats - 01 Baby, Baby, Ooh!
  • China Glaze - 551 Fairy Dust

I did this design once already, go see it here. And it was inspired by Hey, Darling Polish!

Base: 3 coats of the mint green, followed by freehanded stripes with pink and purple. Because you couldn't see the shimmers (I swear they're there!) anyway and my stripes were a bit wonky I added one coat of Fairy Dust. Because: Fairy Dust. Yes that is totally an argument, go read here on the Mercurial Magpie why.

See how Fairy Dust masks all the imperfections? Because you should know by now I am not about doing perfect manis, although this makes it just looks near perfect *coughs*. Just nod.

Must use more Fairy Dust. That is all.

Shimmy your way to the others through the Inlinkz below!


  1. This is super cute! It reminds me of wavelengths!

  2. I think it looks amazing after the fairy dust. I might be biased, though.......

    1. *chuckles* it is basically your fault (and Marisa's) that I finally caved and bought a bottle...
