You've always been....Mysterious.
This week's challenge, we were asked to create a "mysterious" nail design that is similar to Entity's latest campaign.

I started off this design with sparkling peek-a-boos using mixed glitter and a dark navy blue gel polish as base. Then I added some lace, rhinestones and feathers to compliment the mask!
Hope you like it!

This kind of creates a stain glass effect. The glitters underneath will catch the light at different angles. Leaving every glance a surprise.\n\nCure once this step is completed.\n
