Festive Candy Cane-ish ManicureFriday, December 16, 2011
Good evening, dear readers.
First off I wanted to thank you for your kind comments regarding my last post. They really help me to feel better, and I appreciate that so much!! :D
Second, here is the manicure that I promised to post. Messy, but oh well! Hopefully my next manicure will be better. :)
For the white I used Orly Au Champagne, and for the red stripes I used China Glaze Winter Berry. For the green stripes I used China Glaze Holly Day. For the red background I used China Glaze Ring in the Red and Poinsettia on top of that. I used China Glaze Champagne Bubbles for the gold, then topped that off with loose gold glitter. It is odd for me to wear such yellow golds, but I thought they went well with this look. I then added some Sephora by O.P.I Only Gold for Me for the added sparkle, and after some top coat I was done!
Phew! I was pretty tired when I did this mani. Then again, I've been tired most of the time lately.
On a different note, I keep seeing swatches of the Essie Luxe Effects collection and I reaaaally want to find it! I haven't seen it anywhere near me yet. :( Although I would love to get my hands on Shine of the Times, As Gold As It Gets is what is making me drool! It is sooo pretty, and already I am imagining the polishes I could layer it on top of! I really hope that I can find this collection, and if I do, that that polish is not sold out!
What do you think of the Essie Luxe Effects collection?
Have a wonderful evening, my friends!
