The One With the Tic Tac Toe and FingerPaints A-Cry-Lic a Girl

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  A few more days and I don't have to deal with any more Valentine's Day manicures!  Woot!  Seriously, today I'm planning on taking the manicure that will be up on the blog Sunday and doing something totally non-pink/red.  

So years ago when I started blogging, I did a tic-tac-toe design.  I just tried to find it to link it but I cannot.  I know I did one.  I know it's on my nail art wheel I did a few years ago for Valentine's Day.  Well anyways, regardless, I thought it was time to re-create it.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • FingerPaints - A-Cry-Lic a Girl
  • FingerPaints- Paper Mache
  • Zoya - Cosmo

Kind of cute, right?  I think it is.  The pink is a new color from FingerPaints this year.  It is a neon pink polish with a subtle shimmer to it.  I used two coats for my manicure and I think it was the perfect shade.  Not too bright, not too dull.  Now FingerPaints does have a special neon base coat with their new line of polishes this year, but I decided to not use it with this pink because I didn't want a whoa in your face bright pink for this manicure.  I'll swatch it with the white next time I wear it.  Honestly though, the pink was so opaque I'm not sure what a white undie would do for it anyways.  I guess we will see at a later date.

Paired next to Zoya Cosmo, it's quite gorgeous.  Cosmo is one of the only Ultra Pixies that I enjoy.  Probably because it's silver and it has even application.  My others don't really apply well.  I should revisit them all this year and see if they do or maybe I had one evil one and I chalked off the rest because of it.

What do you think?  Fan of the tic-tac-toe?  Liking the pink polish?

Until next time, <3.
