Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Each week, I find myself trying to do something more creative with my nails so I have something to show on this post.
Zoya August: After a week of sparkly Valentine's manis, I was ready for a palette cleanser. Zoya August is a cement gray one coat creme polish. Grey is a modern twist on a neutral mani - I bet this would be allowed in fairly conservative dress environments, and it looks grey-t (ha!) on every skin tone.
Zoya August, Gabrielle Nail Lacquer Pastel Aqua, China Glaze White on White, Salon Perfect Corpses Bride, Salon Perfect Flamingo Flair: I have time to do something fun to my nails on Mondays when I am enjoying my guilty pleasure, WWE wrestling, LOL. I used stripey nail tape to make one vertical and two half randomly placed horizontal lines, all over a base of Zoya August from the day before.
OPI Infinite Shine You Can Count On It: Another need for a palette cleanser after that color block mani! This is the perfect warmed up my skin but better tone with a hint of bright for a fresh and clean look. I used three thin coats of polish - the polish itself is thin and a smidge runny. Wipe off the brush or risk some pooling.
China Glaze Shocking Pink (Neon): Cell phone cameras do not treat neons well. I think that is pretty much the case across the board for bloggers. Here is another pic:
Same polish, I swear! Honestly, neither shot is that color accurate, but I refuse to doctor my photos... #sorrynotsorry. This is more of a bubblegum pastel pink color. Because it is both pastel and neon, it applies very streaky. Even with three coats, it could have used another, but three is my limit. I can see imperfections in the application even with two layers of topcoat.
That's it for this week! What was your favorite polish from this week?
Can we talk? My nails are in rough shape right now. Peeling, splitting, practically tearing instead of breaking. I - we - need a break. ...
