Perfect Pair: Orly Saturated & OPI Life Gave Me Lemons

Perfect Pair Orly Saturated & OPI Life Gave Me LemonsTo date Orly Saturated and OPI Life Gave Me Lemons are my two favorite Spring/Summer 2014 polish releases. I just cannot get enough of those polishes! So clearly, the next step was to use them in a manicure together. Right?

I decided to go big or go home with this mani. I imagine some people will be a bit turned off by it but I really like it.

For this manicure I started with Orly Saturated as my base. I let that dry completely then sponged Ulta Snow White on about three quarters of the nail. Again, I let that dry completely then sponged Life Gave Me Lemons on top of the white making sure to cover Snow White entirely.

Without the white base Life Gave Me Lemons wouldn’t have showed up over such a dark base.

This is definitely one of those kind of ugly but I like it anyway manicures. Plus, I think it’s fun to mix unexpected colors.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump and let me know what you think about this mani!

  1. I like the Orly color, and the gradient!

  2. Pretty! I get a Halloween vibe from this!

  3. Looks great – I love those together!

  4. I fell in love with a bathing suit these colors once… Suit was definitely a no-can-do, but I love this as a mani!
