Sky Blue Mani - For Eli

Today's mani is, once again, in support of a friend in memory of her son, Eli, who tragically passed away during his infancy. Her sweet boy would have been six months old today and several of her friends and I are showing our love and respect by doing sky blue manis. For my mani, I began with two coats of OPI What's With the Cattitude.
I followed up with a topcoat made by a fellow member of several of my polish groups on Facebook, Lori. Her friends have dubbed it the gLORIous topcoat and she made it by mixing SpectraFlair powder with a Wet n Wild clear topcoat to make a stunning holo topcoat. Here it is indoors:
and outdoors:
This goes out to baby Eli and his mama, with love. xoxo

Thanks, Georgey. I'm so happy to have gotten to honor Eli today. I'm really quite in love with both the OPI color and the amazing topcoat.

Gorgeous! Reminds me of Nfu oh 65. I'm sure Eli would have been entranced with your nails.

Kari said...

Thanks so much, ladies. Poetic, that's so amazing that you said that. Nfu oh 65 is a maaaaaajor lemming of mine. I hope it would have made little man smile. <3
