China Glaze: Liquid Leather & Zoya: Jules

I’ve been bed ridden the past 48 hours. I feel quite awful, so this post will be on the shorter side.

I’ve tried sponging in the past, and it didn’t really turn out in my favor. You definitely have to be patient and go slow. I used a make up applicator (the little wedge sponges) and applied just a small swipe at a time of Jules to the sponge. I started at the tip and moved my way down to be able to see how far down the nail I wanted to go. After a few dabs, each nail is done.

I started out with two coats of Liquid Leather and made sure it was completely dry before I moved on to sponging. As mentioned, I dabbed a small amount of Jules onto the make up sponge and carefully applied the polish from the tip down. What I like about this method of sponging, is that it’s very easy to add more or less and really get the look that you want. More or less of what you want. And this manicure has worn like iron, which never happens for me.

I’m looking forward to mastering this a bit more and coming up with more unique combinations to wear.

Have you tried sponging? Was your first attempted horrible like mine was? Is it something you do regularly to mix up your manicures? Or is this a bit much for your everyday looks?

    I find the coverage when using a make-up sponge is too heavy. Kitchen and bathroom sponges give great effects and the variety of types mean your sponging doesn’t always look the same.
