Top of the week to you, ladies! I know it's been a minute since I've posted a manicure here on the blog. Truth is, I haven't really been painting my nails. While I keep my toes looking fresh, I have been neglecting my nails. With getting ready for the baby, packing, unpacking, and just doing the most in the final hour, I just haven't sat down to paint them. Shame, shame, right? I'm the main one always talking about taking a few moments for yourself, but I haven't been doing the same :/ All of that changed Saturday, however, as I decided to splash a little color on my digits for my baby shower. Yep, it took a special occasion for me to give them some love and everything lol.
I decided on my recently purchased Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Polish in Coral Reef as I adored how the polish looked here. But as you can see from those pictures, the color alone looked pretty bland and I wanted to spice it up just a little bit.
I didn't want to add any glitter because I wanted easy removal when I decided to take it off, so I searched for a sheer polish. I came across my NARS Orgasm polish that I rarely use and thought it would look perfect layered on top of the Sally Hansen Coral Reef polish.
I love the combination of these colors. They're a nice subtle change from the loud and sparkly manicures I usually do, but I think I like that. Plus, I cut my nails as I will be wearing them shorter for the little boy I'll be meeting soon. So what do you think? Are these two polishes combined a winning combination?
I'm using my phone's camera, so I wasn't able to capture how beautiful the sparkles and sheer peachy iridescence are in the one coating of Orgasm polish layered over the Coral Reef.
What are your nails looking like this week, ladies? How do you feel about sheer nail polish? Love it or hate it? Ever use it to layer over other polishes? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
