Day Five of the Untried Polish Challenge calls for Warm. When I was thinking about warm polishes, I decided to go with China Glaze's Mahogany Magic from their Hunger Games collection. I don't know what it is about this brown polish, but I love the warmth it has.
While I was thinking about warm things, I got onto the thought of "What keeps me warm?" and after picking Mahogany Magic, it hit me. HOT CHOCOLATE!!! I'm a Hot Chocolate feind in the winter months, so this was a natural progression for me. (Insert rant here about how it snowed yesterday...in MAY!)
People, I am way proud of this manicure. It is my first foray into freehand nail art. I worked super hard on this and may have spent way to much time carefully painting the details onto my nails.
On my thumb and middle finger, I painted marshmallows. Everyone knows you need a good 'mallow or two or five when drinking Hot Chocolate. All of the white in the manicure is done in OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls which up until now I've only used layered under other polishes, that makes it an untried right? I'm saying yes. They are outlined in OPI Did You Ear About Van Gogh? (tan) for some depth.
On my pointer and pinky fingers I've sponged on a combination of My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Did You Ear About Van Gogh? to simulate the foam that you get on the top of your Hot Chocolate. You know, after your 'mallows start to melt? Yum! I topped it with a homemade franken holographic topper to give it some shine. If you look close you can see the rainbows in my pictures.
Finally on my ring finger, you have a mug of Hot Chocolate with steam and marshmallows. The weather here has still been cold enough to keep me drinking my Hot Chocolate, so I'm going to enjoy this manicure as long as possible.
