Lately I’ve been practicing my stamping and nail art. But beyond the technique, I’ve alo been trying to come up with some interest colour combos, and as a result, I’ve been doing more and more nail art that is not over a white base. Two of the colours I’ve tried out while working on nail art are below.
Essie – The Girls Are Out
This polish was surprisingly difficult to capture on camera. It is much more blue-toned than my pictures came out, so I colour corrected to the best of my ability. From the 2013 Summer collection, The Girls Are Out is described by Essie as a Fushcia Peony Sparkle. I think that’s fairly accurate. The formula is creme, bordering on crelly, and goes on well. The swatches are two medium coats, and in some lights show some VNL.
I will wear this again, perhaps even as a pedicure. It’s very summery and sweet.
Essie – No Place Like Chrome
I originally picked this polish to be the base of my Pride 2014 rainbow manicure because I think the Oz tie in is just adorable. The swatches are 2 coats over Duri as a basecoat, but I think next time I would use a smoothing or ridge filling basecoat because like most metallics, this polish shows EVERY flaw.
You can buy Essie at most beauty supply stores, at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada, as well as at NailPolishCanada.com.
