An Orly Dry Brush Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Happy Sunday polished world!  Hope you all have had a fabulous weekend!  I'm quite exhausted and am planning on using today to catch up on some sleep and rest.  Oh, and I wanted to go hit up the Sally Beauty OPI Buy Two Get One Free sale.  And maybe stop and buy some boots.  Okay, I won't be resting today.

That doesn't mean though that I don't have time for a blog post!  I'm sharing with you today a dry brush manicure that I was inspired to do after seeing a similar one by @nails_and_wax on Instagram.  Her's was done with a dark green polish, which I attempted to use but it just didn't look good on my hands.  It was actually a good thing the dark green didn't work for me because when I removed it after a whole 10 minutes of it being on, it had already stained my nails.  I could only imagine the damage it would have caused if I wore it for three days.

So I substituted the dark green for one of my favorite polishes, Orly Gumdrop.  Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Orly - Gumdrop
  • Orly - French Tip White
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
I think I'm obsessed with Orly lately.  That and China Glaze.  I swear those are the only two companies I have been using for the past few weeks.  I need to dig deep into my Melmer and re-visit all my OPI's, Sinfuls, and Sally Hansens.  So many pretties being neglected.  But how could you not neglect them when Orly makes gorgeous polishes like Gumdrop?!  And the world's most perfect white and black polishes?  I just love them.  Yes, Orly is a little more expensive, but I think it's worth it because the bottles are a little larger, they never dry up, and the caps are awesome with that squishy grip.

This manicure is super simple and eye catching.  That's what makes it so great.  You don't have to spend a ton of time on manicure to have some fun nail art!  Literally, I think this manicure took me a half hour to do on both hands.

What do you think?  Like this design?  Have you tried the dry brush technique?

Well I am off to enjoy my semi relaxing and semi busy Sunday!  Until next time, <3.
