Today, the 21st of September, is World Alzheimers Day and the color for that is purple. I’ve worked with people who suffer from this disease for quite a few years and so I couldn’t let this day pass by without doing something to honor the people I’ve met when I still worked as an Occupational Therapist. Of course the color of choice was purple, but what else could I do to make this manicure just a bit more special?
I’d like to show you this very subdued tape manicure. Even though I’ve used a holograpic color that normally pops, it only attracts attention in full sunlight now because it matches the basecolor so well.
And because I chose not to outline the holographic ‘shards’ as I like to call them it’s not as intense as my usual manicures. I’ve picked this technique because the memories of an Alzheimer patient shatter over time and I found a crackle polish just a bit too obvious for this quiet statement manicure.
The polishes I used are:
- Not your hum drum plum by Diamond Cosmetics bought at Boozyshop.nl
- 506 by Ozotic Holographic, bought at piCture pOlish
If you’d like me to do a tutorial on tape manicures or anything else, just let me know! I’ll see what I can do *winks*
