3-D Shadow Nails (my version)

Hello :)  Today I will show you my version of the 3-D shadow manicure which I spotted in the September 2012 issue of Glamour magazine.  The original mani (inspired by Phillip Lim) was in white, grey and black with thinner stripes which was very pretty but I had to recreate using my own colors - Dior Silver Lake, Electric Blue & Ultra Violet, these colors could only be purchased on dior.com in the U.S.

This was my first attempt :)  Started a stripe of Silver Lake, then another stripe of Electric Blue & the rest Ultra Violet.  I'm going to need to have better control of the polish brush next time to make it more crescent-moon effect :)
I wonder if I will get in trouble for recreating this mani?!?!  I will make thinner stripes next time !!  What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by :)

Love this combo - living in Switzerland I can admire those polishes only from afar - BIG relief for my wallet ;-)
