The One With the Pink Smoosh Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this fine Monday?  That's right, we are back to another Monday.  Where did the weekend go?  Actually I got a lot accomplished despite the fact I slept most of my Saturday and Sunday away.  I'm feeling positive and re-energized ready to take this week on.  Watch, my post later this week will be like "oh my goodness, this week is HORRIBLE."  Let's hope it doesn't turn out that way.

Today's design is one of my favorites....a smoosh manicure!!! I haven't done one in awhile because A. they're messy, B. my fingernail was broken, C. did I mention they're messy?  They're actually super easy to do, but they do take some time, patience, and a whole heck of a lot of painters tape.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Put the Top Down
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl

Despite the pain in the butt they are to do, they end result is so well worth it!  First, I start off with a base coat of white polish.  While that's drying, I take some painters tape and tape off my edge of my nails.  I have tried that peel off base coat, Elmer's glue, and liquid latex, but honestly, I feel like those are more of a pain and a mess than using the tape.  After the nails were taped, it was time to get to work.

I then take my squishy Morgan Taylor clear stamper and drip polish onto it.  Usually I do two drips of each color, so for this design I did two drips of white, two pink, and two black.  I don't pile the drips on top of each other, I usually do them all side by side where they are overlapping a tad.  Then I smoosh the stamper on a paper plate where it marbles it on the stamper.  Then I immediately smoosh the stamper onto the white nail.  Remove the tape, clean the edges, slap on some top coat, and got yourself a smoosh manicure!

What do you think?  Like this look?  Fan of the pink/black/white combo?  I wasn't too sure of it at first, but really did love it!

Until next time, <3.
