Hi everyone! It’s that time of the month again! The last Friday of each month my friends from my Nail Anarchy Whatsapp group create a mani with a prompt chosen by one of us. This month it was Thea’s turn to pick a prompt and she chose “Opposites” as her theme. You can find Thea over at Madness Nails. This prompt gave me some food for thought. I didn’t want to do something super predictable and was really stoked when my idea popped into my head. I decided to use colours that are opposite one another on the colour wheel. I chose my favourite colour to begin with (purple) and the colour directly opposite purple on the colour wheel is yellow. In colour theory colours opposite one another on the colour wheel compliment each other well. I wasn’t 100% sure about it before I started my mani, but I certainly was when I was done! This is what I came up with:
I started off with my usual Tip Top base coat to protect my natural nails. On my index and middle nails I am wearing 3 coats of Tip Top Diva Glam. Diva Glam is a sheer purple jelly packed with small dark blue and slightly bigger purple and silver glitter. The base of this polish is very sheer, but built up to opacity with 3 coats for me. I only wore one coat of top coat over this as it didn’t dry too gritty. On my ring and pinkie nails I’m wearing 3 coats of China Glaze Lemon Fizz. Lemon Fizz is a gorgeous yellow pastel. The formula is a bit tricky, as yellows and pastels go, but not too bad. On my middle and ring nails I used some waterslide decals from Born Pretty Store (purchase here*). Once again, they were super easy to use once I figured out how to use them. I use Diva Glam and a dotting tool to dot onto my pinkie nail and Lemon Fizz to dot onto my index nail. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
What do you think of these? I really enjoyed wearing them and would love to hear your thoughts. Don’t forget to check out what everyone else did on the inlinkz below 🙂
