Today I have some quick nail art to share with you guys! I just recently got my Picture Polish Holiday and I really wanted to wear it as soon as possible and I also wanted to see how it looks alone as well as over some darker polish. So I decided to combine these all into some nail art.
Picture Polish Holiday is a special edition holo/flakies top coat and all the bottles are numbered. I didn't really get a special number in any way, but it doesn't matter too much since the polish is such a beauty anyhow.
I didn't want to use black so I went with Essie After School Boy Blaze which is a very dark blue creme. It looks almost black in the pictures and in real life too, but I like the fact that it feels a bit softer than a true black polish does. I used one coat of After School Boy Blazer on my thumb, index and pinky nails. Then I taped the nails with nail vinyls from Vinyl It Up! and painted one coat of Holiday on top and removed the vinyls. For my middle and ringer finger nails I used only one coat of Lumene CC Nail Concealer and two coats of Picture Holiday since I wanted to see how it looks alone.
I really liked my thumb, index and pinky nails, Holiday looks so good over a dark polish!
After a while of having Holiday alone on my middle nails I though I should still add some Essie on those nails too, so I decided to use the same wavy vinyls and painted one coat with the Essie and removed the vinyls. Then I added some Holiday over some of the sections and left the others without it. After doing this I wasn't really sure what I thought about this manicure. There's something a little bit weird about it and eventhough I really love PP Holiday and especially those darker nails, the middle ones look a bit strange... I guess I should have done something else on them or just left them how they were.
I did remember to take a picture before I added the Essie on my middle nails, so I of course wanted to show you that one too:Yup, I think this looks better as the manicure doesn't look so busy.
But tell me, what do you think?
