On to the delicious nails! I started a base of Essie Peach Daiquiri (which also sounds delicious!), and then using an unnamed white polish I free-handed the orange shapes on to each nail. Once that dried, I applied a coat of LA Colors Shock, which is a slightly neon mustard color. Fortunately, it looks more like a true yellow in all these pictures.
In my mind I was thinking oranges when I did this mani, but the end result looks more like lemons. I had hoped that Shock would be opaque enough to look orange when layered over the pink, but it was barely visible (you can see in the macro where Shock went over Peach Daiquiri just a little. I then went back and added dots using the small end of my dotting tool. Again, Shock was too shear to use directly over Peach Daiquiri, so the yellow was layered over white for the yellow dots.
I am actually really liking these false nails, and it’s going to be tough to go back to my real nails since these have such a beautiful shape that my natural nails will never have. The length is perfect, though my nail beds are longer on some nails than others, so there is some unevenness, but all the nails are the same length.
I have some exciting things planned for the end of the month. Nothing too exciting, but it involves posting a little bit more! More than just once a week anyway. ;) I will be participating in the Lacquer Legion linkup – this month’s theme is GLAM! I missed out on March – I completely forgot with my new work schedule, but am excited to be back this month. I am also participating in the Twin Nails challenge again! My twinsie and I have already planned our manis!
Have a great weekend!
