Today's guest post is from Marijo over at Polish Obsession. Between blogs and instagram, we've become polish friends!
Hi everyone!! I was so honored when Lakeisha asked me to do a guest post for her. I'm in love with her blog. She has such awesome nails and I always look forward to what she'll share with us next.
When trying to figure out what to do for this post, I tried to come up with something that I knew Lakeisha would like. I know she likes to toy around with layering polish, as well as nail art, so I figured I'd do both!
I started off with a coat of Essie All in one Base, then applied two coats of Heidi's Glow by Brucci. Heidi's Glow is a lovely pink shimmer that is fully opaque in two coats. I then layered a coat of Model's Own Indian Ocean on all nails except my ring finger. Indian Ocean is one of my favorites right now. It's a gorgeous shimmer recently released in the Beetlejuice collection that shifts from pink to blue. It's very sheer though, so it's best used for layering.
Finally, after the polish was dry, I taped off my nails diagonally. On my ring fingers, I added a coat of Indian Ocean and on all the other nails, a coat of Heidi's Glow. I topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.
I really liked how this manicure turned out. It's such a delicate look and I love the colors together.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post! I hope you all like this manicure. Lakeisha, thanks again for having me. I know you're going to kill your defense!
This is a super cute combo!!! I need Indian Ocean in my life. I've been so busy using striping tape, that I haven't used regular tape for awhile. Thanks for the inspiration Marijo! Be sure to check out her blog for more swatches, layering, and nail art.
