This mani was designed around a purple polish I had never used, and honestly dislike. However, I realized there is less than a week between now and Valentines day, so I should do a Vday mani (so..lots of hearts)!
I ended up with a pink/purple/silver palette. I also immediately went for my striping tape, because I’m addicted to it. Pink base on all the fingers but my ring finger, with purple over every finger but my thumb (which got a silver gradient).
I should have left my thumb with just the gradient, but otherwise, I rather like the designs. I do NOT like the purple…and as you’ll see in two days, I simply painted over it (by hand, so messily) with a red polish that honestly looks much better).
The colors I used:
- Pink: Sinful Colors – Pink Forever
- Purple: Chameleon – Cyclone
- Silver: Revlon (fast dry) – Metallic
The purple got darker as I put on my layers, but it just isn’t a pretty color. It has a nice blue duochrome flash, so I might try to layer it over black and see if I like it better. But on its own, over silver, and over pink, it just doesn’t work for me!
And finally, my friend made me a scarf…so as long as I remember (which is seldom) I’m going to try and take photos with the scarf and my nails! Its beautiful and black and gold, and frames the bright colors wonderfully.
Stay tuned for the prettier red version! But at least the design is pretty
