As I've said, my dad has been so supportive throughout the years for every random thing I've grown attached to. He was even supportive when I got a tattoo of all of the card suits since it was in his honor. He is a very frugal and reasonable guy, so he doesn't remotely understand the amount of money that I spend on nail polish. He worries about my finances and constantly keeps an eye out for my sisters and I in that regard. He's done so much for us and he continues to astound me everyday with how amazing he is at being a dad. He shares my nails with friends from work (hi friends!), he asks me to send him pictures of my nails almost every day, he asks to see them whenever he gets home; I just can't even explain how much all of his support means to me. Now that I'm done being all sappy, I'll get to the actual nail art!
I stuck with black, white, red, and green ($$$$) for this mani, so it's pretty simplistic.
For the thumb and pinky finger, I used two coats of Supernatural Lacquer "Prototype 3" as a base. This shade is not available anymore, but it is extremely close to "GED & A Give Em' Hell Attitude." On my thumb, it was covered in one coat of Supernatural Lacquer "We Kill the Sparkly Ones For Free." I've blurred it a bit in this picture so you can see all of the gorgeous holo glitter in it!
On my pinky finger, I used one coat of 365 Days of Color "Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit." I know, I know, I basically put this on everything. It's just one of those must-have, perfect glitter toppers!
On my pointer finger, I used one coat of A England "Camelot" topped with one coat of 365 Days of Color "Pulling. It. Off." Again, this is just one of my must-have glitters! I use it on everything.
On my middle finger, I did a gradient using Pretty Serious Cosmetics "Nightmaren" for the base. I did one easy coat of Nightmaren with a quick coat of NYC "Grand Central Station" to seal it in. After that dried, I sponged on a combination of Nightmaren and Camelot until it was blended enough for what I had in mind.
Lastly, my ring finger! For this, I started with one thick coat of OPI "Alpine Snow." After that had dried enough, I put on one coat of GCS and let that dry completely. I decided that I'd rather use polish for this than acrylics since I really wanted the shimmer in Nightmaren to show up on the accent nail. I honestly used the tip of a sharpened colored pencil and a dotting tool to do every suit on here!
I hope you all enjoyed what is my second-to-last family nail art!
