Sheer ClassicsThursday, May 30, 2013
I rarely forgo an opaque nail varnish for a sheerer counterpart, but I'm currently loving this classic Essie combination. I've been wearing bright colours and sparkly glitters for a while, I wanted to wear something a little different.
Like I said, I'm not typically a sheer polish person (the reason I avoid traditional french manicures), yet I still have an arsenal of them in my collection.
For this mani, I combined two Essie shades: Mademoiselle (a light pink) and Ballet Slippers (a pale ivory with a hint of pink). I only used one coat of each. Alone, they're a little troublesome to work with (as with most sheer polishes). Layered, they offer a smooth finish. Plus it's day four and still no chips.
I thought I'd get bored of it quickly, but it hasn't happened yet. It's understated and elegant. It could even be classified as "my nails but better." Couldn't it?
What polish are you loving right now? x
Ps, today's going to be a scorcher. Stay cool, loves!
