Nail It Magazine posted on Instagram asking for people to submit a funky French design. I wasn't going to do one but I saw a rack of Essie Polishes at my Beauty Supply Store today and they called to me. It was a unique combination of colors that were all placed on the same rack and I thought they went well together.
I don't generally buy Essie Polishes because they don't dry well on me but I figured I would give the formula another try. I do love the bottle shape and the brushes. The base polish here is two coats of Essie using My Maiden Name. This is gorgeous. I am so glad that I captured the pinkish shimmer in these pictures.
The tips are done with a combination of Essie Polishes, The More The Merrier, Go Ginza, Full Steam Ahead and DJ Play That Song. I took a photo with the base coat and then with The More The Merrier because I like how the two bottles brought out different aspects of color in the design.
The first picture has the base more color accurate. The second was taken with different lighting and turns a tad more blue than in real life.
Wow this effect is so cool! I originally thought it was foil on the tips of your nails! <3ReplyDelete
