Hello hello! I fell off the wagon again. It happens! I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t had a whole lot of time to paint my nails. Good news is, these pictures were taken some time ago, and my nails have gotten quite long again since. So there’s that! 😀
First I have Essie Naughty Nautical, a teal creme with a very subtle silver shimmer. This has an amazing formula, and was opaque in two coats! It’s a little on the dark side, but I still like this for spring.
This mani is super springy! My base color is two coats of Julie G Gelato In Venice—two coats! This is a much cheaper, better formulated near-dupe for OPI’s Gargantuan Green Grape (the old, greener formula). Suffice to say, I was very impressed.
For the “abstract roses,” (they’re totally “abstract” and not just poorly done… I promise! :P) I used an opaque, nameless baby pink by Cosmetic Arts, Rainbow Honey Lei Day for the shading, and Color Club Blank canvas for the highlights. For the leaves, I used Revlon Posh, OPI Jade Is The New Black for the shading, and Blank Canvas for the highlights again. I should have used acrylic paint for these, but I didn’t have any on hand. Next time… maybe.
I still really liked wearing this mani, though. It looked nice from a distance, haha. And that’s it for now! Thanks for swingin’ by. ❤
