Sponging has been on my list of things to try for a long while now, as has playing with the black glitter polish that mrsrexy kindly sent me in a swap because she knows I'm working on my black glitter avoidance issues. When a friend of mine did a mani that combined sponging and black glitter, that inspired me to finally give both things a go. (I would link to her version, but if she has a blog, she's hiding from me.)
For this, I used two coats of Orly Mirror Mirror as my base color, then used a makeup wedge sponge to add Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy and Studio M Slated, then finally added two coats of Nubar Black Polka Dot. I should have added top coat, too, but I was too excited to get to the picture taking stage to stop for that.
I see there's room for improvement in my sponging, though for a first try I think it's pretty good, if I do say so myself. I want to work on getting a smoother transition between the shades next time.
As for the black glitter, I like it in this mani. I'm not ready to start sprinkling it on everything, but I can see a place for it in my stash.
Do you have any sponging tips for me for next time? Where do you fall on the black glitter issue?
