Monkey See Monkey Do Mondays: China Glaze Pelican Gray and Spectraflair Top Coat

Monkey See Monkey Do Mondays are where we re-create manis from different blogs or pictures we have "pinned" on Pinterest, and link back to the original blogger!

Did you know it's been over a month since I did my last Monkey See Monkey Do! Wow, time sure does fly. Well while reading my Bloglovin' feed I came across this beautiful post and found out that I could totally replicate the mani! Yes!

The blog is: Sweet Tips Nails and here is her mani!

She used China Glaze Pelican Gray and topped it off with a Spectraflair top coat she had created. Isn't it stunning! (Please click on the image to be taken to the full post) She goes on and adds some awesome stamping! But I also loved this mani just like this. Simple? Yes, but gorgeous!

So, I started out with China Glaze Pelican Gray. And let me tell you, this was the worst China Glaze polish I have ever worked with! It was super runny and flooded like crazy! But at least it was easy to clean up. This is two coats as it is a bit sheer. Sorry for the bit blurry pic, lighting didn't want to work all that great! :)

I then added a coat of Holo Top Coat 14 which I got from Copious from the seller: Andrea Osvath. She makes some awesome Spectraflair Holo Top Coats!

Just another picture of the holo goodness! :) But I didn't stop there!

I also added one coat of Holo Top Coat 20 for some extra holo goodness! I love this! Super simple but very complex! :)

Thank you Jen from Sweet Tips Nails for such an awesome mani! :)
