Clearly I do my nails quite often. And I try out different polishes and different nail art. I like much of what I end up with but rarely do I love an end result enough to wear it for 5 days straight. A 5 day manicure in my world is insane considering I generally do my nails daily.
I do think PISTOL polish has a method to their madness. Most polishes that come in the monthly duos look not just good on their own but also good with the other polish in the duo. That is definitely the case with the January 2014 duo. Blue Bonnie and Bonus Season work perfectly together.
For this manicure I started with 3 coats of Blue Bonnie. I let that dry completely before adding Bonus Season just at the base of the nail and sort of having it fade out as the color moved towards the tip of the nail. Because the base color of Bonus Season is a sheer black it was easy to fade the color.
So many people commented on my nails when I was wearing this mani! I really do adore it. And it was such a simple manicure to do.
Below the jump there are a few more swatches.
And just a side note, I’m testing out PISTOL polish Coat of Arms top coat. Even after 5 days this manicure looked amazing. I could have definitely kept wearing it but sadly I really did need to start doing some other manicures. I posted a picture of this manicure on day 5 over on TDV Instagram.
