And…more purples! Normally, I wouldn’t really use bow decals because they’re a little too cute for my taste, but I got these in a big grab-bag and thought I’d give it a go.
This medium lavender is made of equal parts red, blue and white shimmer. I’m afraid all the colors involved were Japanese dollar store brands, but give it a try at home- just mix 1/3 red, 1/3 blue (try medium blue or lighter- darker blue will yield a purple rather than lavender) and 1/3 silver shimmer, white shimmer, etc. to lighten it up. The shimmer can be a polish, or even shimmery pigment, such as from old eyeshadows.
I dented my nails fiddling around with the dishes, which is where the decals came in. I wasn’t in the mood to mix up more polish, so I stuck on a bow to cover the smudge. Decals and rhinestones are not only fun, they can disguise a manicure mistake!
