Okay, let's dissect this mani! :P
For the base I used Essie Nice is Nice. Here it is on its own.
Guess what I found in one of my sister's boxes? Maybelline Colorama flakies! This one's called Sonic Sunset. I've been searching the house for this one, because I remembered my mom using it a couple years back. I gave up thinking she threw it out, but it was just hiding! :)
And finally the nail art. I didn't plan this mani, so I was a little worried about the outcome. I basically improvised by picking out the next color while I waited for the one before it to dry. I actually thought it was ugly, but it really grew on me. Now I love it! It kind of reminded me of lanterns and paper fans, hence the title.
|It was drizzling when I took these pics. I swear I didn't drool on my mani.|
Besides the ones mentioned above, I used: Sinful Colors Unicorn, Revlon Sheer Cotton, Zoya Rica, China Glaze Seniorita Bonita, Nfu Oh #53, Zoya Faye, and Milani nail art polish in white. Whew! What a post! What do you guys think? I think I'm really loving this combination of colors. :)
