Copper and Rust

This is a pretty simple mani, just lines and dots! Then again, most things are just lines and dots in some form…

I started with two coats of Vertigris (another of the new formulation Mentality polishes…I’m fairly sure they don’t even make this polish anymore. But I have it so I’m using it). It was the only new edition to the earth tone mattes when Mentality re-sent the new formulation polishes. Its a nice shade of medium-green with a hint of blue. This is two coats.

I top coated Vertigris before adding tape and adding a pale mint green. When that was dry, I added more tape and a copper-with-green-glitter. I decided the copper glitter was too glittery for my dots, so the dots were done with a true copper metallic polish that didn’t quite match…but it works I think.

In the end, not a super complicated mani, but it looks alright! I think my nails look like rusted copper.
