1 coat of OPI Natural Nails Base Coat
3 thin coats of Necessary Evil Polish Norepinephrine,
1 coat plus dabbing of L.A. Colors Mermaid Magic Shimmer Mist
1 coat of Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny!
This is a manicure I created while I was on my staycation last month, and of course I have almost no recollection of it! 😛
Norepinephrine is a thermal polish but I wasn’t able to capture it very well. I’m going to point you to Jenalyn’s swatches which made me buy the darn thing in the first place!
1 coat of base coat polish
essie Twill Seeker, 2 coats
Sinful Colors Green Ocean, 1 coat
L.A. Colors Sassy Sparkle, 1 coat

Usually I don’t wear essie much because as much as I love the polish and finishes, for some reason it will just peel off my nails. And sure enough, I had this manicure on for about 24 hours and it just started peeling off. Ugh!
I know my cuticles are looking rough here – this winter has just been hell on my nails, even though I lotion and oil and baby them. 😦 How’s winter treating your nails?

I don’t know if I shared how I create splatter manis now! Basically I make them into a decal by creating the splatter on a piece of plastic wrap/sandwich bag, wait for it to dry, peel it off and cut out a section for my nails.
