Happy Thanksgiving! I hope this finds you well and you’re all anticipating the wonderful turkey-stuffing feast ahead of you. If you are unfortunately getting ready for work, I am so sorry. Hopefully, enough people choose to not shop today to ensure this doesn’t happen again next year. I know I will not be out shopping today.
Today, I have a manicure inspired by The Nailasaurus and My Simple Little Pleasures. When I saw it over at The Nailasaurus, I was intrigued, then fell in love with Colette’s version using textured polish. This is actually one of the very few styles I will copy with little change. Normally, I like to have something different, but loved this too much to alter it any way besides what colors I used.
Colors used are OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, What Wizardry is This?, Solitaire, My Current Crush, and Jinx. I absolutely love this manicure! To the point where I kept it on after noticeable tip wear. I was also considering doing this again right after. I’ll have to revisit this with different color schemes.
Lincoln Park After Dark is a deep, vampy red. Dark enough where it looks black in most lighting, then shines red when you least expect it. What Wizardry is This? is the gold-brown Liquid Sand from the Oz collection. While I’m not a huge fan of this color, I do like using it as an accent. Solitaire (white) and Jinx (orangey coral) are both from the Bond Girls collection and I have used them before. I absolutely love those Sands and recommend them to everyone.
My Current Crush is a beautiful purple that is a limited edition polish available in The Txture Effect duo that was released over the summer. The duo included the purple sand color with a base coat from OPI. I stared at it for a week before deciding to purchase it. The purple is just too pretty.
