I felt the need to do something different and this is what happened:
I wanted to create the illusion that my nail beds formed a point. Kinda creepy... but kinda cool! They look like reversed vamp nails! Maybe I was subconsciously inspired by the recent premiere of the 3rd season of True Blood or maybe the newest movie in the Twilight series (also the 3rd...). Whatever it was, it worked! I like this.
Notice the black line. Without it, the manicure looks very unfinished.
Skin toned color- OPI "Canberra't Without You"
(topped with Essie "Matte About You" to reduce shine)
Dark Red- OPI "We'll Always Have Paris"
Black line- Stripe Rite (Black)
How do you feel about it?
I think it looks pretty good. I just wish I'd had a darker flesh tone color to match my skin better!
A great way to get a nail color that completely matches your skin tone is to take a mineral or loose powder makeup that you have (that matches your skin tone, of course) and mix a little with clear polish. It's a way to achieve the ultimate mannequin hands look.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
