Well, I feel like I finally busted out of my mani rut. At least a bit. This isn’t complex, and it is yet another blue mani, but I am happy with it.
Here’s what I used:
From left to right: NYC New York Minute, Essie Grow Stronger, HK Girl, Pueen Buffet 61, piCture pOlish Freya’s Cats, Mundo de Unas Silver, and, of course, my Messy Mansion Marshmallow head.
**Warning**Tangent** On Saturday, I received my second order from MdU, including the Silver I used in this mani. I’m hoping to get some swatches up this week, but if the Silver is any indication, I am going to be very very happy. Also – last week I received the full pro set of stamper heads from Messy Mansion. I had initially only purchased the marshmallow because the pro set was sold out, but snapped it up when they restocked. I want to get some shots of that up this week too. It is going to be a busy week…work had better not get in the way!
ANYWHO…I threw down a coat of Essie Grow Stronger followed by one coat of Freya’s Cats (no top coat):
I had initially planned to take this mani in a different direction, but, as usual, I changed direction mid-mani and threw down a second coat (again, no top coat):
So pretty, right? Here’s a close-up:
I have had this polish for a bit, but had not used it. Off the cuff, it reminds me of Zoya Dream. If anyone is interested, I can swatch for comparison, but I was mid-mani and so did not do it tonight. Either way, it is a freaking gorgeous color. SO PRETTY!
I threw a coat of NYC In a New York Minute over the top to help the polish dry before I stamped. Then I headed in with some stars.
Overall, I am very happy with this mani. But tomorrow, I really need to do something other than blue!
Thanks for stopping by, and stick around — there is so much more fun stuff coming!
