Good morning polished world! How are you all doing on this fine Saturday? I meant to get a post up yesterday but it completely slipped my mind. I'm kicking myself too because I have so many posts I need to share. I have to get back into the blogging groove. I feel like I've been saying that for 8 months now and keep failing at it.
Today I am sharing a manicure I did in mid-August. See, I told you that I have a back log of manicures. Anyways, in August we had a monarch butterfly release at work. This year we got a new butterfly garden which attracts monarchs and is supposed to give them a safe place to reproduce since they are almost close to becoming endangered. I love butterflies so when we got the garden I was rather excited. It attracts so many neat looking butterflies, but the monarchs have to be my favorite.
Let's take a look at my manicure!
- FingerPaints - Paper Mache
- FingerPaints - Tie Dye Tangerine
- FingerPaints - Yellow Out Man
I love how these turned out! I never wear orange or yellow polishes so I always forget how much I love how these colors look. Tie Dye Tangerine and Yellow Out Man are a part of the FingerPaints Tie Dye Revolution collection that came out earlier in the summer. It was a collection which consisted of five bright cream polishes and re-introduction of their awesome white polish. I absolutely loved the colors in this collection because they were perfect colors which any nail artist could use.
For this manicure, I started off with a base coat of Paper Mache. Once it was dried, I used Tie Dye Tangerine and Yellow Out Man and created a gradient. These polishes are PERFECT for gradients! They are so opaque that I literally only had to dab the sponge a few times. Typically I have to paint the sponge twice and do two rounds of dabbing. This time, only once! Total plus!
What do you think? Fan of this look? Should I do more orange and yellow manicures??
I highly recommend getting over to your Sally Beauty and picking up these polishes if they still have them! Two of the stores I went to last week still had a display!!
Until next time, <3.
