The One With the Tribal Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!!!  How are you all doing today?  It's Thursday but it feels like it should be a Friday.  It's been a long week so far but I have gotten a lot accomplished.  I have edited photos, pre-published some posts, and got all my Christmas lights up on the house before the winter storm this weekend.  Yeah, you are reading that right, we are expecting a winter storm before Thanksgiving.  It's been such a weird Fall, especially since all the leaves are still on the trees, but it's almost the end of November.

Today's manicure is a cute tribal design.  I've done this exact tribal look before, just on a different base.  I should start switching up my free-hand designs, but the evening I did this manicure it was late, I was tired, and not really feeling too creative.  Regardless, I'm in love with how it turned out.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy
  • China Glaze - Big Hair and Bubbly
  • Color Club - Blue Ming
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
Isn't that gradient amazing??  I used the original formula of Flip Flop Fantasy for this design.  You know, the one that is more pink than coral.  I hate when polish companies change their formulas and you are forced to sparingly use your favorite until the bitter end.  I probably couldn't get a coat of my original Flip Flop Fantasy on my nail if I tried, therefore it's a gradient only polish.  I love how it looks mixed with Blue-Ming.

Big Hair and Bubbly is my new favorite gold glitter.  This polish is from China Glaze's new holiday collection.  The girl's at my local Sally Beauty let me have a sneak peek of the collection at the beginning of November and I picked out my four favorites - all being glitters.  Kind of shocking since I never wear glitter polishes, but I did this in hopes I start using my glitters again.  After using this one, I for sure will.  It applied wonderfully over a base of gold polish.  No need for dabbing or placing any of the large pieces.  Happy to have this because all of my gold glitter are either dried up, or have holo pieces.  

What do you think?  Like this tribal design?  Fan of the gold glitter?

Until next time, <3.
