Good morning polished world!! I apologize for not posting more, but I have had quite the busy week. I wanted to have this post up yesterday, but I went to a gala on Wednesday and never got around to editing the photos. I really need to edit my photos ahead of time. Maybe this weekend I can sit down and just do them.
Today is round 35, yes 35 of Bestie Twin Nails with Fashion Footing. Amanda is taking a little break from her blog, but she is still posting on Instagram. Then there's me, who hasn't even updated her Instagram in a week. Where has my motivation gone?! I"m still painting, still buying polish, but forgetting to post to social media. Speaking of which, I really need to update the Facebook too. Sigh, there aren't enough hours in the day!
Today, we are re-creating a splatter manicure originally done by Young Wild and Polished.
Let's take a look!
- OPI - You're Such a Budapest
- OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
- Sinful Colors - Taupe is Dope!
- ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
Love this manicure so much. I never would have thought of this color combination on my own. I really need to start looking at my Colors board on Pinterest for different color combinations. I'm in love with the taupe nail, which is Taupe is Dope! by Sinful Colors. I picked this up a few weeks ago and honestly didn't even pay attention to which display it came off of. I think I also purchased a blurple color which I need to go locate. Anyways, this taupe applies perfectly in two coats and dries very fast. Works wonderfully for the splatter.
I wasn't sure if You're Such a Budapest was going to splatter because it's a bit sheer. It's a light purple cream with a shimmer. I think the shimmer is what makes it thinner than your typical cream. Regardless, it takes three coats to get full coverage, so that's why I didn't think that the splatter would work. Luckily it did and it's just gorgeous mixed with the taupe and black.
What do you think? Fan of this look? Something different!
Until next time, <3.
