This weekend we hosted one of my best friend’s Bridal Shower, so I felt like my nails needed to remind me of Love – minus the color red. So I went to my staple manicure… pink, glitter and an accent nail.

Nails1

Main Polish: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Back to the Fuchsia

Accent Polish 1: Sephora By O.P.I in A True Romantic

Accent Polish 2: Sephora By O.P.I in Only Gold For Me

Step 1: 2 coats of Back to the Fuchsia on all nails except the ring finger.

Step 2: 1 coat of A True Romantic on both ring fingers.

Step 3: 2 coats of Only Gold For Me on both ring fingers.

…ending with a fast dry topcoat.

Only Gold For Me is clear with gold specks so by adding a “base” of A True Romantic, it really brought the color out and made it look solid. Without the base – you would have seen the plain nail with just a glitter top.

Ruby Ruby is my favorite red polish and I figured if I threw in a nude accent it would really bring the color out. Unfortunately, this manicure did not come out as I had envisioned it would but I wanted to share it with you guys anyway.

I’m going to try using the colors opposite, I think it might look excellent with Leotard Optional as the main color with an accent of red. I also want to note that I am a big fan of Sinful Colors – the polishes are very affordable at $1.99 and a majority of them have great wear. There is always a few exceptions though, for instance – their mattes aren’t the best and Ruby Ruby while it is my favorite red…. peels so easily. I am constantly having to re paint a nail or do touch ups but since I haven’t found a red to be as true of a color as this one, I stick with it.

While looking through some shots I took last week, I noticed I forgot to upload one of my manicures.

Here’s a quick peek at them.

Main Polish: Sephora by O.P.I in Just a Little Dangerous

Accent Polish: Sephora by O.P.I in Almost Famous

I also added a nail decal on my pointer fingers.

Just an FYI – Just a Little Dangerous does not photograph well. In my photos, it looks blue but it’s true color is a very rich purple. I have included a professional shot the bottle so you can see the real color.
