#ManiMonday: Matted & Flecked Watermelon Mani

I'm so excited to be guest hosting Mani Monday, make sure you stop over and see my special manicure as well as the other manis guaranteed to brighten your Monday!

Even though I am hosting, I still want to contribute a manicure. When else will I get to show off 2 manicures on one day?!?





To achieve this manicure I used Essie 'Mohito Madness,' Sally Hansen XW 'Coral Reef' on ring fingers, Zoya 'Chloe' (fleck,) and Essie 'Matte About You' (topcoat.)

Although it's definitely different and unusual looking, I think I like it shiny rather than matte:






Which do you like more?

  14. Hard choice, but I think I'd say shiny :) I keep seeing the Mojito Madness and its really growing on me!! I've found that Essie polishes are always so watery and thin, is this one like that too?
    LOVE your mani you posted on Heather's blog, I SO need a nail art pen!!

  15. I actually really love the matte! I'm still looking for a matte polish (for some reason I can't find one around here!) but it gives it such a unique look.

  16. Hiya, I'm new to your blog & saw you are co-hosting this weeks Mani Monday.

    Fab mani, I'm with you I think I prefer this shiny, but I am kind of biased to shiny mani's lol x :-)

  17. I usually prefer a high shine manicure, but for these colors there is just something about the matte finish that makes them pop. Love your manicures ALWAYS!
