So, as you know, I've been swatching my meager little stash. I've recently acquired two Icing colors. I'll leave the reviews on those to the swatch post, but I was noticing how the green sparklies in Witch's Brew were similar to the sparklies in Evergreen. I thought they may make an interesting spongicure, so I went with it. Now, this was my first time sponging, so be kind. HOWEVER, I had a stroke of genius...at least to me!
I have read dozens and dozens of posts about sponging. All of them said they use make-up sponges and even cut up kitchen sponges. Well, I didn't have any make-up sponges as I don't wear foundation very often and when I do, it's just a sheer powder. And I really wasn't up for cutting up a kitchen sponge. So I had to figure out another option, when it dawned on me that I have a whole package of tiny little eyeshadow applicators. I figured they should do the trick AND be less messy due to their compact size. As I said, I've never done this before, so I cannot attest to whether or not this method is easier. But I can say that it seemed quite easy to me, even as a newbie, and the mess was minimal.
On to the mani! I started with two coats of Icing's Evergreen, followed by SH Insta-Dri. Then I sponged on Icing's Witch's Brew using the eyeshadow applicator, followed by another coat of SH Insta-Dri. What do you think? I'm thinking not too bad for my first time.
UPDATE: Have gotten tons of compliments on this today! And someone over at MUA provided me with a reference for this mani that I love...Wicked! And this links right into my Oz kick lately! Happy Dance!
