Hey everyone! Today I have another mani created from the wonderful secret Santa box that I received from Because I Can. I just couldn’t wait till I’ve published my post showing you all the goodies on the 31st before diving into the pretties and using them! I was so super excited to discover a Hean Ordinary Misfit in my SS box! It was on my wishlist and I wanted it not only because it is a gorgeous colour, but also for sentimental reasons. You know by now Ordinary Misfit and I are friends, so owning her blog’s namesake polish was a no brainer 🙂 Let me show you what I did with her!
I started off with my L.A. Girl base coat to protect my nails. Somehow when planning this mani I complicated it so much. I realized afterwards that there was an easier way to do it and kicked myself. I painted 2 coats of Ordinary Misfit on my index and middle nails. This polish has the most divine formula. It is buttery goodness personified in polish. It is a dusty pink that definitely has a place in my sea of pink polishes. I painted 2 coats of 2True Shade 7 on my ring and pinkie nails. Shade 7 is a very fine glitter that is practically opaque in 1 coat. It also has a beautiful copper shift in certain light. I did flood my cuticles with this polish a few times while painting, but I feel like the finish and gorgeous colour were totally worth any clean up effort required. Once that was dry I taped off the triangles on my middle and ring nails and painted them alternating the colours, removing the tape immediately. Once that was dry I taped the triangles off again and stamped using essence black stampy polish and BP-L003. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite. Afterwards I realized it would have been easier to stamp the entire nail before taping off sections and then just filling in the solid pieces. Duh.
I hope you like what I came up with 🙂 Have you ever complicated something that should have been simple to do if you had just thought of it? Let me know in the comments below!
