Hello Lacquer Luvers & Happy Pink Wednesday to you all! I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day yesterday & if you didn't I hope today is a much better one for you =) I got the best gift ever from my husband, Ty. He did so good! Below is a picture of part 1 of my gift. He got me a dozen polishes!
|(L-R: (Top) Finger Paints Art You Wondering?, SC Oasis, SC Cinderella, OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI?, OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam, ORLY Purple Crush, (Bottom) WNW I Need A Refresh-Mint, CG Pool Party, CG Naked, CG Gothic Lolita, CG Turned Up Turquoise, & WNW Club Havana)|
I thought that was it (and totally more than I thought he would get me) but he came home with a part 2 which was lilac roses and chocolates. It really was a special day for me! Since today is Pink Wednesday, I used two of the pretties he got me yesterday for today's manicure. Let's get to it, shall we?
My mani today began with a base of Essie's Grow Faster followed by 3 coats of China Glaze Naked. Naked is a rosy pink that has pink and silver micro-shimmer in it. This shade was not as opaque as I would have liked so it took 3 coats to reach full opacity. However, application and formula was very smooth & dry time was average.
See the micro-shimmer, pretty isn't it? For nail art I wanted to do a water marble & thought that Sinful Colors Oasis would be a great choice since it was a darker shade of pink than Naked is. It also shares the same shimmer quality that Naked contains in that it has purple iridescent shimmer throughout it. I used Jordana's Barely Pink so that Naked would still peep through the sheerness of Barely Pink. This manicure was topped off with Essie's Good To Go topcoat.
I love how this came out! I think the two pinks work really nicely together. What do you think Lacquer Luvers? I would also like to know which of the new polishes I got you want to see on my blog next so please leave a comment below letting me know which one's you would like to see. As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
