31 Day Challenge: Day 8 - Metallic

I used to love metallic colours, until I discovered they looked funny on my nails and against my skin. So today I've tried to make this mani look less metallic than it should be. It's a bit of a cop out but I did this late in the day after I realised I hadn't yet done it and I had no idea what I wanted to do. I went for the cling wrap design, however I used a cut up freezer bag. I'm not sure if it was because of the colours or the freezer bag, but this turned out a bit different to what I imagined it would be. 

It's not my best work and I'm not massively proud of it, but it does look much cooler in person than in the photos, I think that was due to the fact that I photographed this late in the afternoon when there wasn't a whole lot of light left. 


 
The pink base is Cosmic and the silver is Silver Cloud Martini both by Savvy by DB.

Also, I realised while editing that these aren't the best photos. Today was just such an off day, so I apologise, but hopefully tomorrow is better! I have an idea in my head for the rainbow theme so if it works out it'll be pretty cool.
