Anyways............I completely forgot about this style of mani till I was at Fred Meyer's last week, and saw their Essence display with TONS (and I mean TONS) of new products. One being their Nail Art Multi Effect Brush. Its a teeny, tiny fan brush, and it works wonderfully!
(Doesn't look great in this natural light pic)
For this mani I used OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls as a base, then for the colors I used Orly Lollipop (one of my absolute favorite pastel pink!), and Zoya's Blu and Neely.
The only issues I found with this is that I would get too much polish on the sides of my nails, and the polish would pool at my cuticles. I was so quick to clean up, and it would drag the still wet polish at the sides of my nails. Next time I won't use as big of drops of polish.
I got so many compliments on this at work yesterday. Some of the girls I work with kept saying they thought I was wearing iridescent polish, and I just didn't get it and then I saw it at a certain angle and it totally reminded me of this. I just wish my camera picked up the colors of this, cause it really looked awesome!
I'm not sure why this style didn't take off like gradients and cling foil mani's, cause it's super easy for us non nail art girls!
