The One With the Random Mauve Manicure


Good morning polished world and Happy Friday!  How are you all doing today?  It's been weird weather here.  Warm, cold, warm, cold.  It needs to make up it's mind on what season it really is.  I doubt it will though.  I'll be stuck here in random weather limbo with my sinuses killing me.

With the worst holiday in the world, Valentine's Day, right around the corner, it only seems appropriate that I start sharing with you some pink manicures.  I rarely wear pink, yet it's the part of my collection which I think has the most polishes.  Regardless, this awful time of year gives me an opportunity to use polishes I don't ever get to use.

Today's manicure is just something I made up with OPI Just Lanai-ing Around.  I bought this polish because I didn't own anything like it.  I debated on getting it because I figured I would never use it.  Sure enough, the dumb thing sits in my melmer rarely being used or touched.

So here it is, in all it's mauve-y goodness.




Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Vampire is Buff
  • OPI - Just Lanai-ing Around
  • FingerPaints - Wrapped in Ribbon
Gold, pink, and nude.  Yeah, that sounds totally Alaina.  NOT.  I honestly don't know where I came up with this color combo but I'm kind of happy I did.  Something very different for my nails.  It's kind of nice mixing it up a tad.



Just Lanai-ing Around is actually quite pretty.  It's a dark mauve cream with a very very subtle shimmer.  Two coats and you have full coverage.  I can see myself using this as a pedicure color during that summer/fall transition time where it's not too cold to be wearing shoes.  You know, when you're still holding on to summer in hopes that maybe Fall will never show up.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Something different?  Very simple for me.

Until next time, <3.
