If there’s one thing I like almost as much as glittery nail polish, it’s big chunky rings. I have small hands, so they tend to look somewhat ridiculous, but that has never stopped me before!
Mr. NTMG bought me a pretty Labradorite and silver cocktail ring. It’s a hard color to describe- a murky yellowed-green with flashes of blue and muted yellow in certain lights. The edges of the stone are very dark, and there are dark, thin veins running diagonally across the stone. Sort of reminds me of the House Of The Dead arcade game, actually.
As those of you who have been blog readers for a while know, I got my start in the nail world by mixing up weird colors. So today, I’m back to my roots! I wanted to make a Labradorite-inspired nail polish color, since I don’t have anything in that exact shade. I mixed half China Glaze Holly-Day (medium dark neutral green creme) and half China Glaze Cosmic Dust (dark gunmetal holo) then added a few drops of Barielle Gelt Me To The Party (bronzed metallic deep copper) to add the warm yellowy flash.
Here’s what I got:
I’ll be onto some holiday nail art and DIY tutorials next, but I thought this would be fun to share!
