Twinsie Tuesday: Accent Nail

Inspired by Morie's Nail Art manicure, I decided to replicate her use of Sinful Colors Super Star over a navy with my Twinsie Tuesday accent nail post.

I began with China Glaze Queen B, a deep blurple creme from last year's fall collection.  I must say I was super disappointed with this; while the color is divine, the brush was so thin that application was a horrible mess.  Just look at how uneven my cuticle line is!  And the more I tried to clean it up, the worse it got.  Such a shame.

To accent it, I used the Sinful Colors glitter, a blue jelly with blue and lavender flake-like glitter.  While Queen B was a disappointing horror, Super Star was an absolute gem of a polish, applying super smoothly and evenly and didn't even need top coat for a smooth glossy finish!  It also worked so well with the blurple creme that it didn't really look like much of an accent when I first applied it.  I tried two more coats to see if it would pop more, but as you see, it's still a very subtle accent.
