So it's not letting me add text to the top of this post. Oh well! So I tried to make it look like a summery sunset. I actually really like these. They may not be perfect, but they're me. I like subtle craziness. I really don't know how to describe these nails, obviously.
I painted these Wednesday afternoon and it's Friday. They haven't chipped at all. Which is great because 1. I love them and 2. Normally N.Y.C. nail polish chips an hour after I paint them. I hope these last me until next Wednesday at least. I seriously love them.
Oh and if you want to know the exact colors I used here they are: OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener, N.Y.C. Fuchsia Shock Creme 111A, Times Square Tangerine Creme 112, N.Y.C. Taxi Yellow Creme 114A, and OPI RapiDry Top Coat.
I used the sponge technique to do this, and the mess happened because the sponge was too large. Also partly because I suck at being clean while painting my nails. I painted on the nail strengthener first, then the fuchsia shock creme (2 coats). Then I poured the pink, orange, and yellow onto a plastic bag right by one another. I swirled them a little bit with a tooth pick. Then I dipped the sponge in and covered my hands, I mean nails, with it. I repeated the pour, swirl, sponge steps a few times. Then I added the top coat. It's super easy, just less effective I guess.
What do you guys think? Are there any nail trends you've tried that you like?
