And for another edition of MANIC(URE) MONDAY! I hope you guys like these! :) I know I do… I like the clever title and all! And it forces me to use different polishes of my collection more often! So I am just gonna say THANK YOU all for bringing creativity out of me.
This manicure consists of a base coat of Essie Bikini So Teeny and a topcoat of Sinful Colors Cinderella. I love the two of them together, but apart I am just not wow’ed by either of them. Bikini So Teeny is a nice enough color but alone it is just sort of boring (that is only my opinion) and Cinderella is actually stunning in the bottle but it isn’t opaque enough to be worn alone.
The beautiful micro pink shimmers of Cinderella are almost unnoticeable but when it catches the sun you can see it and you are just “oooo and ahhh” over it. At least I am anyway! I love the name Cinderella for this polish because if you are as big a fan of the movie as I was it doesn’t need to be explained at all… therefore I wont explain it. GO WATCH THE DISNEY MOVIE! ;)
I wanted to include this unfocused picture below because you can see in the bottle and on the nail it caught some of the brilliance of the shimmer.
Close up shot of the names of the polishes, in case you wanted to search them out and needed help?
And while I was taking shots today a ginormous cloud started really messing with my lighting but when I looked up I caught the most beautiful ray of sunshine peeping out of it. It was telling me there was hope! My photo shoot wouldn’t need to end…. So while I waited for it to pass I turned my camera on the cloud itself and look at the amazing beauty I captured! I am in awe of this magnificent shot. And completely surprised that I am the one that took it. *Pats self on back!*
Hell, even Taupe Doggy wanted to stare at it…. even he knows a good thing when he sees it. *hugs and squishes him* If you are wondering why there is a big gaping hole in my fence going to my neighbor’s yard it is because we are getting a pool and so are they, so the pool guys are going through their yard to get to ours.
So… What is on your nails today? Another thing I want to know is how often do you all change your polish color? I have noticed that I get antsy every couple days now… if not EVERYDAY! This Manic(ure) Monday is really changing me! :)
