ICE DIPPED FINGER TIPS

Or maybe sugared plums would be a good name too! This is my NOTD using Diamond Cosmetics #332 Plum Pie In The Sky for the base color and PA #Q9 for the ice covered tips. I love the contrast of the dark base and the sparkle of the silver tips. I was going for a gradient type look, or sort of like it was sliding down the rest of the nails from the tips. My tips are completely smooth after just one coat of Seche! That was after a nice thick coat or two of the PA on the tips. PA nail polish is right up there with my TiNS. It looks like I have been digging through a barrel of diamonds :) I did have a little tip pullage, but I blame that on the thickness of polish that I applied to the tips. With the ice covered tips though it isn't noticeable, at least not if you don't have a macro setting camera trained on them they don't.


I tried to get several different pics of this polish to show off the many different colors that PPITS has, but I don't know if I was able to accurately do that or not. Either way - go get Plum Pie in the Sky - you won't be disappointed ladies :)

It looks super on you! PA is kind of a weird brand- sort of like the Wet 'n' Wild of Japan. It's one of the cheaper ones here with some great polishes and some duds. I think this looks great- it reminds me of an dark fairy tale queen.
