essence Walk On The Wild Side

Gift Button

 

 

 

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you a mani I created with more goodies from my Secret Santa box. The gift that keeps on giving 😉 Honestly when I saw this colour in the box I was quite unsure of it. It isn’t the type of colour I would normally choose. I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it with from my box and then this happened:essence walk on the wild side with gold foil accentsessence walk on the wild side with gold foil accentsessence walk on the wild side with gold foil accentsI started off with an L.A. Girl base coat to protect my nails. I painted 2 coats of essence walk on the wild side. This polish is a deep forest green with a gorgeous green shimmer. This polish truly surprised me! It dries a touch darker on the nail than it looks in the bottle and is absolutely gorgeous! A stunning winter colour! Sometimes I just need to be pushed out of my comfort zone. I used a clear top coat for “glue” and a tweezer to apply the foil. On my other hand I did a full foil nail and didn’t really like how it looked, so I tore small pieces off and placed them. The foil is very thin and finicky. It is difficult to tear small pieces or to be precise about it and it tends to stick to surfaces, so sometimes it is hard to get it off your finger or tweezer to place it, so this was the best I could manage. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.

What do you think of this mani? Have you ever worked with this type of foil? Any tips?
