Today is the rare and elusive "girly" day. Every now and then one sneaks up on me and I actually reach for pink. Shiny, sparkly, glittery pink. The fact that it is a Wednesday just solidified in my mind that today was meant to be pink and there would be no argument about it. I entertained the idea of all kinds of fancy stamping or freehand nail art but then I remembered the packing I stopped halfway through to paint these. I didn't want to be extra sad when I inevitably chipped them horribly, especially if I had just done a lot of work on them. So it is a nice minimalist girly day around here. Don't be sad though, there's still sparkle!
And a few in the fleeting moment of sunlight I managed to catch in time.
- Seche Rebuild base coat / Seche Vite top coat
- Sally Hansen Salon Manicure I Pink I Can
- Pure Ice Pink Ice
- Claire's Cosmetics Candy Shop
I actually really like how simple and clean this came out but with still enough sparkle and shimmer to satisfy my glitter craving. I started out with two coats of I Pink I Can on all fingers, the ring finger got a healthy coat of Candy Shop white the rest got a thin layer of the sheer but super shimmery Pink Ice. This was a nice quick mani that I think would look great with any kind of colors/glitters. Something about a subtle shimmer with an accent nail always feels right to me. Ever since my very first accent nail I've just been in love. Do you guys have a favorite style that just never lets you down?
