Marimekko Inspired Manicure

Today I have a manicure inspired by The Polish Playground, who was in turn inspired by elleandish. I absolutely loved what Lisa did, and I hope my manicure is a worthy copycat! Let’s see what polishes I’ve used:

Sinful Colors Black on Black, All About You, You Polish I'm Worth It, Sinful Colors Unicorn, Sagitta, Snow Me White, Eva So Bright

From left to right: Sinful Colors Black on Black,Β Sinful Colors Black on Black, All About You, You Polish I’m Worth It, Sinful Colors Unicorn, Sagitta, Snow Me White, Eva So Bright

I used two coats of Snow Me White on my thumb and middle finger; two coats of Sagitta on my index and pinky finger; three coats of All About You and 2 coats I’m Worth It on my ring finger. I used Black on Black, Eva So Bright, Sagitta, and Unicorn for dots.

So what do you think? I absolutely love this manicure, and I don’t want to take it off! Sagitta has this gorgeous pinkish shimmer to it, and it totally takes the polish color to another level. Plus my ring finger is so sparkly, I can’t stop staring. LOL!

I did use Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter-A-Peel as undies on my ring finger, and I haven’t had any peeling at all; I also used NPB Glitter Food before I topcoated the glitter finger, and that really helped smooth the glitter out. If you don’t yet have either Glitter-A-Peel or Glitter Food, you need to buy it now!

I don’t really want to take this manicure off, but I do need to do some swatching and other manicures. 😦 Oh well – #nailpolishbloggerproblems πŸ˜› Until tomorrow,
