Last week, Brittney from Precious Polish came up with an excellent idea to do a group post on this year's trend according to Pantone: Emerald!
I personally do not think this colour compliments my anything...so naturally it was challenging coming up with something...went through my stash, and here's what I found:
More so turquoise than anything, it looks like...haha!
SO what's a girl to do? I decided to mix two polishes together:
China Glaze- Turned Up Turquoise
Cometic Arts- no name
I sponged them on as gradients, and the colour came out subtle but fitting to the theme!
Also, I developed a new obsession with glitters....I'm not sure what took me so long....but I bought these:
Look at them....it's like a party on your finger nails....
Anyhoo...as you can already see...this mani didn't photograph as well as I had hoped...I have no idea why...but these Ikats are IMPOSSIBLE to photograph...maybe I just need better picture taking skills
But you guys! Believe me when I say this: this print looks absolutely amazing in real life...
so very sophisticated in my opinion.
That's all for me today, hope you enjoyed my Emerald Ikat mani!
