#ablecs15 Week 8: Monochromatic

I had way more ambitious ideas for my monochromatic manicure for the #ablecs15 challenge, but I just started in a new job this week, so I just didn't have time to do what I originally had in mind. I'll definitely do that mani at some point, but for now I have quite basic manicure for the theme.

Monochromatic, so basically all colors of a single hue. I decided to go with pink for this manicure and use one of my newest Picture Polishes for this manicure.

I did two coats with Picture Polish Paris. It's a bit sheer, so you might want to use three coats for absolutely full coverage, but since I was trying to save some time I did just two. It did cover quite well with only two, but you could still see the nail line a bit. To get some more pink hues to the manicure, I then applied some pink flower water decals and that's it. These water decals worked pretty well for this theme, since they do have several different hues of pink in them. Though they would have worked even better without the black outlines since they kinda ruin that monochromatic look, but let's just pretend that it's very very dark pink and not black... ;)

I really wish I have had time to do something more complicated for this theme, but like I said, at this point I just had to go with this one. There's really nothing wrong the mani though, it's a really pretty one and I loved it. I'm not completely sure wheter PP Paris is the best match for my skintone, but I don't really care as the polish is so pretty. 


I still have my Easter mani to do for this week and I have no idea what I'm going to do for that one! Hopefully I'll figure out something before it's too late...
