Shatters + Bottles by Shadow

I wanted to play with my new shatters so  I  did a quick mani I applied Revlon Royal then took out my Turquoise shatter and then thought to do some accent nails but i was pretty tired so I ended just using silver shatter for accent nails. It didn't feel complete so I added some glitter! I did one coat of Cover girl boundless color city lights and a coat of seche vite to smooth it out.

So I recently arranged a swap with Rebecca from rebecca likes nails and one of the the polishes in the swap was her beautiful fraken that she later named Rebecca likes cupcake. I had made an order from Transdesign.com and with that order I had got some empty bottles for Rebecca and to try to do a franken. As I was packing her stuff I had an AHA moment I thought to myself I sometime buy polishes because I like the shape of the decoration of the bottle so why not decorate the bottle.. I already had an idea of what I was going to draw because Rebecca love hello kitty like I do and her fraken is called Rebecca likes cupcakes so why not make a Hello Kitty Cupcake. I decided I would draw the outline with a sharpie and then design the entire thing with nail polish. Here is the begin of the the process

Here is all the polishes I used.

Final Product

After the polishes dried I added a coat of Seche Vite to give it some protection.I love how it turned out I almost kept it for myself but It was Rebecca's fraken that inspired this creation so she deserves it. I will be making more of these.
