Happy Monday! I adore today’s mani. I am so pleased with this combination that I almost can’t even put it into words. Almost. I’m wearing two coats of Digital Nails‘s Crush Leaves Not Dreams over OPI’s Don’t Talk Bach to Me.
So let me start with my base color. Don’t Talk Bach to Me is a chartreuse creme with a very fine silver shimmer throughout. Several years ago, I was on a quest to find a vintage green color, not unlike the avocado green kitchens of midcentury modern houses. After trying a few and being disappointed, I spotted this one on an endcap at the supermarket and never looked back. I cherish this shade.
Crush Leaves Not Dreams is the perfect topper for this base shade. The gold-to-orange shifting flakies complement the warm green, and the fine blue shimmer adds a bit of contrast and sparkle. It would look great over any creme, honestly, but I’m completely impressed with how it works over this one.
OPI polishes are sold in stores. Digital Nails is still on hiatus.
That flakie is neat! I really hope Digital Nails returns.
loveLOVE this one. I hope she comes back one day.
I love Digital Nails!!! I hope you she comes back soon!!! She had some of my favorites!
What a perfect name for the top coat – it matches the colors perfectly. What a cool polish.
The flakes are beautiful but I would prefer them on a different base.
That is an interesting yellow!
yellow on yellow…love it! Flakies are my life! 🙂
Ooo, I love when the light hits!
Love this combo! The chartreuse base is perfect for the flakes.
I really like the flakies in this one. I don’t think the base color would look good with my skin tone.
That flakie is gorgeous and looks perfect over the yellow base!
This combination is perfection! I’m not sure if I’m more excited by the base shade or the topper!
This is a great polish pairing, very unique and the colors compliment each other so well.
This is a great pairing! I love love yellows and the topper makes it look like it’s dripping in gold!
That’s quite interesting and different
Beautiful mani. I adore this combo and that topper.
