'Color Cosmetic # 28' & China Glaze 'Sexy in the City'
NOTE; My posts are allllllll out of order, the internet is angry with me. Uploading pics & typing is difficult for some reason. Anyhoo- here is how I jazzed up a previous mani. I think it turned out very pretty.
How I did this;
- 2 coats of 'M' Color Cosmetic's # 28
- 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat
- Apply Nailene Tip Guides diagonally
- 2 coats of China Glaze 'Sexy in the City'
- when dry-remove tip guides, buff any raised areas & apply 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat
I wanted to get 1 more day out of my Toronto polish - 'Color Cosmetic # 28', so I stuck on some Nailene Nail Tip Guides diagonally across the tips of my nails and applied 2 coats of China Glaze 'Sexy in the City'. When it was dry, I peeled off the Nailene nail tip guides, gently buffed any raised areas, and applied 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat I find that lately I am into subtle contrast, so I thought that these two colors were similar. Whenever I end up wearing this polish I always ask myself "Why don't I wear this more". ChG 'Sexy in the City' is a beautiful polish. It is perfect for layering over a mani that needs refreshing.
!!!!! Exciting Photo commentary !!!!!
Grrrrrr. The hot pink on the packaging of these Nailene French Tip Guides, sometimes messes with my camera. When I have worn polish's that are hott pink or orange, taking a photo without my skin turning orange is impossible. But it certainly is helping to show-off the green iridescence of the GhG 'Sexy in the City'
A low lighting photo which miraculously canceled out the orange tones created by that hot pink packaging.
No hot pink = no orangeness. This photo was taken after I removed the package of Nailene french tip guides. After I removed the tip guides from my nails, the ridges created by the tip guides are visible. When your nails are slightly wet you can take a chance and gently 'squish' these down with the pads of your finger tip. But - waiting till your nails are dry enough to gently buff with a fine buffer will result in a crisper, perfect line. Usually 2 coats of Top Coat will conceal a raised ridge, too

This is a 2 day old mani, that I wanted to get a little more life out of before I removed it. This was 2 coats of this blue & 2 coats of T.C.

Absolutely beautiful mani! Thanks for showing the "how to's" :-)
Very, very clever. Tasteful. If only I had the patience I would do this. Yet another terrific series of pix.
Sex in the city is one of my fav blues! Love this idea! Hope my nails grow out enough that I can give this a go!
these are beautiful and interestingly subtle!
I think these are both beautiful and subtle!
I really like the subtle difference between the two blues. They look great!
i love this manicure !!
Wow, I love the subtlety of the two shades! What do you use to buff the raised edges away?
This is such a beautiful manicure. I love those shades of blues. You always have the most amazing nails. Fantastic!
