Untried Polish Challenge: In Season

And I officially suck at life, because while I had the pictures ready for this post and intended that it go up on time, I totally forgot about it. The 3 day weekend threw me off my game. 

Anyways, today is day 13 of the Untried Polish Challenge and the theme is In Season. It's almost summer here so to me that means BRIGHT COLORS. 




I started off with a base of Butter London's Diamond Geezer. This is a silver foil that is absolutely amazing. However, removing it sucks, but that is the nature of all polish like this. 




After waiting for Diamond Geezer to dry, I painted on half moons in Essie's Shake Your $$ Maker. This is from their Neon Summer Collection, It's a super bright neon jelly, that freaked my camera out. I couldn't get the color to show anywhere near its actual brightness. 




To spice things up, I lined the Half Moons with Blue Sequins or Gleequins as they are called. This was a really fun mani to wear, and I'm glad I branched out and tried half moons. I'll try these again in the future now that I know how easy they are. 

What does "In Season" mean to you?

  4. Did you use hole reinforcement circles or just free hand em? I think they look great! And I like the silver and the green. That was a great use of that super sheer neon-ish green. And usually green and silver looks Christmas-y to me, so I think it was really smart adding those gleequins cuz they make it perfectly spring/summery instead of Christmas-time. ;)

    1. I did use the stickers, I cut them in 1/2 first so they'd fit better.
