Creative musings in bright colors

Guiding Star

This was a quick mani I did just to see how well my new pinkish red matte contrasted with a beautiful deep holiday pink I got last year! Given that I free-handed all the lines in this, I’m actually pretty happy with it. It honestly would have taken less time if I just used tape…but I was in a house in the Pocono Mountains with a bunch of friends and a bunch of food and NO TAPE. So this is what we get!

This was just fast and easy. Two coats of Cute Little Vixen by OPI (why don’t I use this polish more often? It’s so pretty!), and then tried to make rectangles using Beautiful by Mentality.

Beautiful is a pretty reddish pink matte polish that has a satin-like finish. I just used it again today (whee!) so I can say for sure that it covers in two thin coats and dries quickly. I was hoping for a true red matte (which this is not) but it is a pretty mature-yet-girlish color all the same! You can find Beautiful at the Mentality website for $6.75 with free US shipping!

I finished the mani off with some free-handed stars. Sorta. Maybe bows like the top of a gift? Anyway, the gold is Penny Talk by Essie. I need to get my hands on another real gold soon (Penny Talk is more of a copper gold).

Hope you enjoyed! Up next…jelly goodness 🙂
