Happy Monday! I want to preface this by saying this is probably going to be the last laid-back Manicure Monday for a while. After today, I dive into writing a novel and possibly starting a new job — fingers crossed! In any case, things are going to be busy and I’m nervous and excited. These nails look like I feel. For this look, I used Deborah Lippmann’s Single Ladies and Essie’s Good as Gold.
I wasn’t totally sure what I was going to do with this look when I started it. Single Ladies is a really squishy polish; it look three coats to get rid of all the streaks. I thought about taking advantage of this and doing a pond mani or something similar, but I didn’t want to cover the pretty metallic gold effect of Good As Gold. The classic gold and red was very necessary here.
I’m pretty happy with how this turned out. Splatter manis are such a mess, and I kind of wished I had some liquid latex or something. I’ve really got to invest in some, it would make life so much easier.
Single Ladies and other Deborah Lippmann polishes are sold in stores; I got mine from Sephora. Essie is available pretty much everywhere.
I LOVE this. I just got a blood red jelly, I may have to copy
Hahahahaha!!! I love this!!! Great halloween mani!!!
How’s the new job going? great mani
Good luck with the writing and new job. This is a beautiful manicure, I love the colors.
Gold and red are so pretty together. And I hope you got the job! 🙂 And I can’t wait to hear about the novel!
A novel! How great! Are you partaking in the Monthly Challenge for it being writing month and all! Also what a fun mani, it could totally be wrapping paper!
Yes! I’m a local event organizer for NaNoWriMo as well as a participant!
I haven’t seen a splatter in a while. They are so fun!
I really like the way it looks on your middle nail!
Girl! How do you not have liquid latex yet!!?? Get yourself a bottle ASAP. I like ellagee and Nail Hoot.
Girl, I know! I still use tape when I watermarble. I try not to use a lot of products that I can’t buy in a store when I need to restock; it’s why I use Seche Vite instead of an indie QDTC. I do want to get into stamping and other more intricate kinds of nail art, so I’m going to have to invest in some. Does it store well? I might just buy like ten of them and be set for life.
I LOVE splatter patterns! This was great!
These are gorgeous x
How spooky and fun!
ohh, I love the splatter effect — very cool and unqiue!
I love how this turned out!
These are sort of putting me in the mood for holiday nails! Beautiful! 🙂
I really love this. They would be awesome holiday shopping nails!
All the best for the novel and new job!
Nice use of the polishes
