Although I'm loving all the bright colors, neons, and creative manicures I've been doing recently, I was really in the mood to go with a more neutral manicure. Manicure Monday has challenged me to come up with new ideas and to finally recreate some manicures, but this week I needed a palette cleanser.
This was really difficult to capture accurately, it really came across as mannequin hands. Then again since I've committed to staying out of the sun I'm as pale as Casper!
To achieve this manicure I used CND Stickey Basecoat, 4 (thin) coats of OPI 'Barre My Soul', one coat of 'Pirouette My Whistle' on my ring fingers, and topped it off with Essie 'Good to Go.'
Before I go, I want to leave you with a little nail tip. I get questions and compliments frequently as to how do I get my manicures painted so perfectly? The majority of the time I don't. I use an eyeliner brush (elf, Target, $2) and a little glass votive (Sally Beauty Supply, ~$1) to clean where I painted on my fingers and cuticles:
I recommend using a stronger nail polish remover, such as an 100% acetone one, but any polish remover will do.
Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
