Dragonfly nails inspired by @lieve91 (glow in the dark!)

Okay, so there's this lady on Instagram who I REALLY admire, @lieve91. She's like my nail art crush, if you will. Her nail art designs are always so flawlessly executed that I have recreation anxiety, meaning I'm scared to recreate any of her designs because it will never live up to the original. Butttt.... she posted a few of her 'fails' a loooong while back, and one of them just really jumped out at me. It's been with me ever since and here is my version of the design! Click to see the glow pic!

I used a LOT of polishes for this design. The white background is Serum No. 5 Pure Glow Getter and the gradient is China Glaze Sunday Funday, OPI What's With The Cattitude, OPI Mermaid's Tears and Gosh Early Green.

The dots were actually a lot of work, haha! For those, I used Picture Polish Sea Jewel, China Glaze Fade into Hue, Philly Loves Lacquer Absecon, Color Club Over The Moon, Zoya Giovanna, OPI Greenwich Village, A-England St. George and OPI Teal The Cows Come Home. Phew! That was a whole bunch!
And ofcourse it glows in the dark too, thanks to Pure Glow Getter!!! It's really weird how the bottle has a different color than the nails. I saw this outside of the camera as well and I shook the bottle for a long while, but it didn't change. I wonder what caused it!
Surprise surprise! My Cinderella hand makes an appearance! Yes, despite always only showing one hand, I do actually have two. But my Cindy is an actual Cinderella. I keep the nails short (and weirdly enough, my nail beds are shorter on the right hand!), most of the time unpolished and they have to work HARD. But here they are!

I hope you like this, please visit Anja's profile on Instagram (@lieve91) and show her some love! You'll be amazed by her incredible designs!!!
