NOTD: PHD Vampire Challenge (Zoya Pinta + Rihana)

So, this week's Polish Hoarder Disorder Challenge was vampire nails.  Not like, vampires on your nails, but what kind of manicure would a vampire have?  You can check out the Challenge Gallery HERE:

Something dark & chic I thought, but with a hit of something sharp ... I was going to do a tutorial, but the colors were just too dark to show up on video.  I started with a base of 2 coats of Zoya Pinta, gorgeous vampy purple creme, and I let that dry completely.  I cut painter's tape into a chevron shape, covered the tip of my finger, and then sponged the base with Zoya Rihana.  I am in LOVE:



Even being in love, I'm still only 90% happy LOL.  I had some bubbling, I'm not sure if from the uneven texture of the sponged area, I'm actually thinking my Seche is the more likely culprit.  I also wish I'd made Rihana just a little intense, sponged it a bit further down.  But that's OK, because I'm going to do this in another color combination so I can do a tutorial, so I can hopefully make the adjustment then =)

Thanks for reading.

  1. Wow, now that I understand how you did it I see all the different purple. What a great color theme, it's gorgeous! That's one of those things that for me would not turn out looking good, but yours fades in a really interesting way to make it look really awesome.

  4. That is really beautiful. You are so creative and I really like seeing your nail art.

    I have been having trouble with Seche bubbling this summer, too. I thought it was just me and my application. Maybe I am not altogether to blame. lol

  15. I looove Rihana over this, it's so gorgeous. I would've left out the chevron tip though so we could see more Rihana.
