Beige and brown are not my favourite colours when it comes to nail polish, but I really like the very simple design I applied today. And because I have some serious cleaning coming up, I removed the single (yay!) silk wrap I had on and cut all nails down.
This is what I used for this manicure:
- OPI Nail Envy
- OPI You’re A Doll! (swatches and review)
- essence multi dimension 39 spicy (swatched here)
- N.Y.C. in a New Your Color Minute 220B Canal Street (reviewed in the same post as You’re A Doll!)
- Seche Vite
First I applied a basic manicure of Nail Envy (two coats), You’re A Doll! (three coats) and Seche Vite.
Then I added two overlapping diagonal segments using spicy.
And lastly, I used a striping brush and Canal Street on the very edge of the brown part and sealed the polish with Seche Vite.
The design kind of reminded me of a wrap top. Weird.
Also, I seem to have a genetic predisposition for developing hangnails. Is there anyone else out there who can moisturise till the cows come home and whatnot and still gets those pesky buggers all the time?
