Arsty Wednesday: Frame nails

The theme this week is frame nails. There are a couple of different ways to achieve this look from what I've seen. I tried using couple of different polish from the spring OPI Spiderman collection for this week's manicure.

I don't think metallics were the best choice here. The blue was sheer and didn't cover well.  It showed every imperfection on my nail and each brush stroke. The base is Into the Night and the green is Just Spotted a Lizard.   I used loose gold hex glitter to frame it in. 

Have you tried frame nails? How did it turn out?

Here's the list off all the Artsy Wednesday participants: 

Michelle - Lab Muffin
Melanie - Nail & Polish 
Jessica - Beauty Gnome
Catrine - Unnaked Nails
Kamen - KAKA Beauty Blog
Emily - Anaccentnail

Thanks for reading!
