After my last post, I realized its been a little while since I last did a nail polish-related write-up, and even longer still since the last time I did a creative nail polish article.
So without further ado, here is today’s creative manicure.
I was playing with the reinforcement stickers to do a traditional ruffian mani, and in the process I had a notion about putting the reinforcing circles on the other end of my nail to see how it looked.
Maybe others have tried this — I don’t claim to know it all.
Anyway, I think it ended up looking kinda cool.
The colors I used were Revlon Carbonite (to be reviewed separately later), with Orly Luxe layered over top.
I just realized I’ve never done a full review on Orly Luxe. I will do that soon, because its a great formula and a beautiful shade somewhere between 10 and 14 kt gold.
I think if I’d had some very long and thin nail art brushes, I would have taken a stab at adding a transition stripe between the two colors – I think that would’ve polished off this mani a little bit better.
As it stands though, I really like the look of this.
What do you think?
