This manicure came about simply because I wasn’t in love with Essie Truth or Flare. I don’t dislike that polish by any stretch but I didn’t like it as a full manicure and I’m not really into wasting a perfectly good mani so I decided to alter it a bit. I took Truth or Flare off my ring and pinky nails and contemplated for awhile what to do. Finally I decided to do an all blue manicure.
To contrast Truth or Flare I used CND Midnight Swim. Using a navy polish on just the two nails makes it very obvious the polish is not black. To give this manicure even more sparkle I used one coat of deborah lippmann Va Va Voom (aka my favorite glitter EVER) on top of Midnight Swim. The result was something I truly loved.
While obviously this isn’t your normal, everyday manicure, something about these colors together gave the mani a bit of a subtle feel. Even with the glitter. Turned out to be a great combination of colors that reminded me of the sky; both during the day and at night.
There are a ton of swatches under the jump!
