Hi everyone! Here’s the cute lazy-day Sunday mani that I came up with today. It’s been very cold here lately, but today feel more springy and the birds are all chirping outside- so I think this happy cloud design seems fitting. My base color is Sephora by OPI Natural Environ-mint. It’s totally blue so I don’t know why they call it ‘mint’!! Then I stamped some clouds on using my Konad M79 plate and some white Konad Special Nail Polish.
I added some matte topcoat by MASH to finish off the look. This MASH matte polish is so great! I bought it because it was cheaper than most other matte toppers. Turns out that it dries super-fast and I’m really happy with the smooth formula. I guess my cheapness paid off with this purchase!
Hope you all have a happy end to your weekend! I’m going to go back to watching Breaking Dawn Pt1 now. I recorded it a month ago and I’m having a hard time deleting it because I love it so much. So I’m watching it again to get my twilight fix. Maybe that will make it easier for me to delete it from my DVR box later!?
I watch a decent amount of prime-time cable (okay, I watch A LOT of cable) and lately I’ve noticed a definite fashion trend: almost every leading lady in the last few weeks has worn dark blue and black together! Personally, I’ve always steered clear of blue and black since the old rule is that ‘navy and black clash’. But the more I see these two colors together, the more I likey! This trend inspired me to do a color-block nail design using the following:
♥ one coat of Orly Ridge Filler as a base
♥ two coats of Cynthia Rowley unnamed neon blue polish
♥ a striper brush and Wet n Wild ‘Ebony Hates Chris’ for the black accents
♥ MASH Nails Matte Topcoat – I needed two coats to make it matte since the black Wet n Wild was super-shiny!
Why doesn’t Cynthia name her polishes? I’ll never understand that! Well, I’m gonna go ahead and name this neon Shark Week since it’s a vivid dark blue that reminds me of the bottom of the ocean. The shade really lightens up for the camera so I tried some different lighting conditions to get the blue to stay as true as possible. It’s still way darker in real life… but c’est la vie!
I have heard that Cynthia Rowley nail color is hard to find. Luckily, I received a three pack set from my lovely sister for Christmas! In case you’re trying to get your hands on some in the US… I think she found it at Marshall’s Department Store.
