Happy Saturday! Yay for weekends!
Today I have a polish to share with you that I have lusted after FOREVER (or since I started reading nail blogs at least). It's the lovely Revlon Whimsical that I won in a giveaway hosted by Marisa at Polish Obsession, along with Orly Steel Your Heart, which I used in this jigsaw manicure. Do check out Marisa's blog - she's got fabulous swatches and some really pretty wintry nail art :)
I'd read on blogs in the past about people being disappointed with Whimsical because it was so sheer, so I decided to layer it over a polish. I whipped out my Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, and was all ready to go, when I decided that actually Whimsical is a bit more green than that. So I got out my OPI Mermaid's Tears, but Whimsical's a bit more blue than that... It's a very interesting colour, to look at it I'd definitely say it was blue, but it's definitely got a green tinge to it when you compare it with other blues.
Anyway, I decided that since the hint of green was so interesting, I'd go with Mermaid's Tears to bring out the green a little more. Here's what I ended up with.
So this is OPI Mermaid's Tears with three coats of Revlon Whimsical (look at those pretty glitters!). Then I decided to bring out the pink glitters a little more with some half moons painted on in Barry M Bright Pink. This is the first time I've tried painting half moons on on top of my design, rather than using hole reinforcers - how do you think I did?
Thank you again Marisa for this gorgeous polish!
