Playing around with 2 of my favorite indies ... Sugarpill and Cult Nails!

I'm still sick (what is going on?!) but the other day when I had a momentary period of time when I felt human again I decided to play around with products from two of my favorite indies--Sugarpill and Cult Nails. Now before you get too excited, no, Sugarpill hasn't released new polishes you haven't heard about! I actually used Sugarpill's amazing Goldilux loose shadow and tapped it in nice clumpy bits onto my nails (Cult Nails Scandalous). I didn't want a faint sprinkling, I wanted nice chunky splotches ;)

I think it worked really well. After I put several (3) coatings of Scandalous on my nails (you can do less but I wanted it super opaque) I did a nice thick coating of seche. Then I tapped Goldilux on my nails using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. After sech had a chance to dry I tapped my fingers off, coated it with another layer of seche, and tried to do a reasonable clean up around my nails. You can still see that there is some Goldilux around my nails. I didn't want to scrub my hands right after doing my mani, even with it dry, so it isn't the best clean up job, but later than night I did manage to remove the rest of the Goldilux around my cuticles without damaging my mani.

I really like the way it turned out! I actually shared these pics right after doing my mani on instagram. For those that prefer super uniform manis this is probably not for you, but if you don't mind something a bit more spontaneous give it a try!

I'm planning on trying stamping this weekend if I'm up to it. We'll see how it goes ;)

My left hand (also the first one I did)

My right hand. I think my application of Goldilux was a tad better on this side once I got the hand of it a bit more ;)
