SNAAARKM Challenge Day 5: My Favorite Effect

Hey guys! Time for the latest SNAAARKM Challenge!

Today's Challenge is "My Favorite Effect" and I just realized after applying this polish, photographing, and drafting this that I thought it said "my Favorite Technique" so I'm really dumb. ANYWAY, it's too late and oh well :-)

Since my favorite technique is glitter and that's not really a technique (or an effect, whoops), I chose to do a 'cocktail mani.' The cocktail mani is when you paint the first 3 fingers of your cocktail hand (in my case, my right hand) a sparkly color, and the rest of your fingers are a different color.

Let me show you!

I used 2 coats of Finger Paints 15 Minutes Of Frame on my left hand and on my ring and pinky fingers of my right hand, and FP's Movie In The Park on the first 3 fingers of my right hand.

I know technically this isn't a technique and it's not really an effect either, but I think it's a really cool trend right now and it's obviously super easy. And I did this about 5 minutes before I had to post this, haha!

Oh and this is not even remotely color accurate :-/ 15 Minutes Of Frame is a neon minty/kelly green. It's a really cool color, I don't have anything like it in my stash. There is no top coat on these pictures, either. 

Left Hand...

Right Hand! 

Enjoy the sideways picture! Ack, today I am just... aack! LOL!!
