Blue Opal Manicure
Howdy, everyone! Check me out, 3 posts in 3 days! Woot, woot! I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. Before I get to my manicure for the day, I wanted to remind you all to enter my giveaway. I'm accepting entries until 1/16, so make sure to get yours in!
Now, for the nails! Today's mani is a simple, but gorgeous, combo. Take a look:
I started with 2 coats of Essence Colour & Go in Let's Get Lost, a lovely turquoise blue creme. LGL is one of my favorite blues ever; a perfect, bright, summer-y color. On top of that gorgeous blue, I layered 2 coats of Zoya's Opal Flake Effect Top Coat, a blue to green flakie in a clear green base. Wow! This combo was knock-your-socks-off lovely! I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to get a great shot of the color, which is much more green than these photos show. There really is nothing like a flakie for wow factor. I wanted to do a matte top coat on this but, unfortunately, I got a few chips after one day of wear and didn't want to redo the whole thing...maybe next time.
Here's another view:
You can see the flakie a bit better in this one I think.
I've got some great manicures planned over the next few weeks, so I hope you'll stop back in to check them out. Thanks so much for reading!
