Inverted French Nail!!

So, I know I was supposed to stick to the whole Hallowe'en thing, but that's really hard when one just got a bunch on new nail mail and I just had to play around with some of the colours! So, this is how this nail art came to be. I'll be honest, I still don't know if I like it or not.

I started off with a base of Risqué: 2 in 1 - I have really weak nails, so I always use a base-coat in the hopes that someday my nails will be awesome and strong. I did buy OPI Matte Nail Envy, so when that gets here, I'll see if does anything - but that's another post! /Lili gets carried away.

- Pink: Revlon - Iced Mauve 
- Red: China Glaze - Cranberry Splash
- Black: Sinful Colours - Secret Admirer

I decided it was more than time for me to try out the whole Inverted French Nail type of manicure. And I had been playing with my swatches and liked the colour combinations. I painted first with Revlon's Iced Mauve and the added Cranberry Splash and Secret Admirer as the accent nail.

I think I actually prefer just the accent nail, maybe because the contrast is more notable?? It's been a few days and I still keep looking at my nails and wondering if I liked it or not. But oh well, sometimes that's what you get from a manicure!

Have YOU ever had a nail combination that you just weren't that sure about??

  1. Ohh, Nail Envy is good. My nails tend to split and peel and that's the only thing that works for them.
