Cellairis and Pomegranate Argyle Glitter Nail Art PLUS giveaway!

Hi everyone :)

You may remember the cell phone case/nail polish collaboration I posted here, a few weeks ago with  Pomegranate Nail Lacquer and Cellairis .
I have another look to show you! PLUS Cellairis and Pomegranate Lacquer have been so generous as to provide a new iPhone 5 case and Pomegranate Lacquer for a lucky winner! Yippee! You will find the Rafflecopter to enter the giveaway at the end of this post.

The case I'm showing you today, https://www.cellairis.com/product/debari-argyle-americana-case-for-apple-iphone-5, in my opinion is a showstopper. Not an everyday case. I absolutely love it!  I'm surprisingly finding it more durable than I thought it would be. I haven't lost a crystal off it yet. You will see though, from the photos, that it doesn't stick out enough in the front to protect the screen for me to use this one everyday.

 Here's my inspiration and my supplies! A beautiful case made by DeBari for Cellairis and provided by Cellairis, Pomegranate Nail Lacquer in Cardigan (provided by Pomegranate NL) and red and silver loose glitter from Michael's craft stores (purchased).

 To create this, I applied 2 coats of Pomegranate Cardigan. That would have been fine, except I fell asleep on them and got marks ;) SO I added a third coat. When I was ready to apply the glitter, I needed to use a top coat (not a fast dry) to "wet" the nail so the glitter would stick. I did this one nail at a time. I applied each glitter....ONE BY ONE. Yep. I might be nuts. Top coated with Seche Vite.
 In real life (without the super bright lights, and macro camera setting) the nail polish color matches the case nearly perfectly..and the glitter... I'm gonna have to toot my own horn and say it is nearly perfect as well. I'm pretty impressed with myself! This is one of my favorite looks I've ever done, and photos don't do it justice because you can't see the amazing way the glitters catch the light with every move. And without the macro setting...any minor imperfections of glitter placement are invisible.

 Some views of the front of the case. There's not much "shock absorption" in this case if you drop it, and like I mentioned it doesn't jut out much to protect the screen. But it is easy to get on and off and fits snugly on the phone. Did I mention I love it?









 I've been wearing this mani for three days now, and will be sad to take it off. It's really amazing :D
*THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL WIN!!!!*
