Today I have another installment of #HePicksMyPolish! Going in to this mani, I had no idea what I was planning to do. I ended up deciding to do a simple chevron design using nail vinyls from Nails Redesigned.
The colors he chose are:
Pure Ice Celestial (blue)
Pure Ice Home Run (mint)
Urban Decay Naked Smog (brown)
I started with a base of Home Run, the applied my nail vinyls and painted Celestial on the bottom half of the nail, and Smog on the top half. This is the first time I have used any of the Urban Decay Naked minis I won in a giveaway earlier this year. I will really need to use them more often!
For whatever reason when I applied my topcoat (Seche Vite) a foggy look appeared over Smog on some nails. I'm not entirely sure why this happened and it wasn't noticeable in real life. Even though I took these pictures only a few hours after doing this mani, unfortunately you can already see the shrinkage on my tips and the base color showing through.
Overall, I really did like this mani. I love that he constantly picks colors that I wouldn't necessarily put together, but end up looking great together. I even got compliments at work - which I always love. Happy Hump Day!
