Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? As you can see from my lack of posting on Tuesday, the Twinsie's are taking a little break for the month of August so we can all enjoy the rest of our summer and re-group. I'll have an update about the group in another post today. This post is going to be dedicated to the nails!
Today I am sharing a manicure I did using Orly Cake Pop from the Sugar Rush collection. I wasn't sure about this polish when I first saw it and passed it by. After seeing some swatches and base for nail art, I decided it was time to purchase it. I snagged one of the last bottles at Sally and it got lost in my collection and almost forgotten about.
I decided to use it as a base for some fun neon flowers! Let's take a look!
- China Glaze - Too Yacht to Handle
- China Glaze - Plur-ple
- China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy
- China Glaze - Glow With the Flow
- China Glaze - The Grass is Lime Greener
- Orly - Cake Pop
- Black Acrylic
Cake Pop is such a gorgeous nude pink polish. It applied kind of patchy, but by the third coat it evened out. I could have gotten away with two coats if I decided to do them a tad thicker. Maybe next time I use it I'll do one thin coat and a second thicker coat. Regardless, it was worth the three coats. It was so gorgeous and shiny. It dried fast too!
I followed my Retro Rose Nail Art Tutorial to create the design. I fist created the polka dot background, then went through and added all the roses. Fun fact, over the past few months, I stopped using my nail art brushes and went back to using toothpicks. I've found it to be a lot easier to work with when drawing the small details. The only brush I really use right now are my stripers. They never let me down....and I don't have to clean them after use!
What do you think? Fan of this look??

Until next time, <3.
