13 Days of January - Day 12 - Recreate one of your own old manis

Hi everyone! It's the second to last day of the 13 Days of January Challenge already! Today's prompt is Recreate one of your own old manis

I hesitated a little bit about which mani to recreate and decided to go with one which had something I would like to improve slightly. I really liked the concept of this negative space/studded mani I did back in April. The one thing I didn't like about it is that my topcoat made some of the gold colour from the studs bleed a bit. I decided to recreate it with a change of colours and using something else instead of the gold studs.

I started out with two coats of Elevation Polish Just like Night Time from January's Journey Told Through Music collection. Lulu describes this one as a 'rich navy with blue, teal and aqua shimmer, medium density holographic'. The sparkle in this one is just phenomenal. I had no issues with the formula or application. 

For the two negative space nails, I simply painted leaving a triangular space at the cuticles. I then used topcoat and an orange stick to apply some small crystals and finished off with a coat of topcoat.

This is a really simple manicure to do but it is not the type of mani I wear regularly so it makes a nice change. I don't often use crystals or studs and when I do, it's usually more sparingly but this is fun every once in a while. What do you think of it? 

Elevation polishes can be purchased from the Elevation Polish store and Llarowe and you can like the Elevation Facebook page here
