Perfect Pair: essie Pret-A-Surfer and essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low

Perfect Pair essie Pret-A-Surfer and essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle LowI like to call this kind of manicure the lazy girl’s way to fix a chipping mani.

The inspiration for this manicure came from a picture in a recent Mark catalog. I was already wearing essie Pret-A-Surfer and really love the color. Unfortunately some fairly aggressive gardening didn’t do my manicure any good and I had a few relatively minor chips. I was (of course) running late and didn’t want to leave the house with a chipped manicure so I used the manicure from the Mark magolog as inspiration to refresh my manicure.

Using essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low I dragged the brush across the tip of the manicure to make kind of triangle then I filled the rest in. I only needed one coat and because Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is a metallic finish polish it dried super fast. I was out the door before I knew it!

I really liked the way this manicure turned out and of course the color combinations are endless!
