This simple gradient (using a makeup sponge technique) is actually step one of two... you'll have to stay tuned to see what I ended up doing to it. Can't. leave. simple. mani. alone.....
- Sephora X 'Over the top' (soft cool lime green)
- Charlotte Russe 'Pastel SP09 NAI' (this mysterious polish has no other name than this... why are the best magical polishes always so elusive?!)
- Nails inc. 'Chelsea physic garden' (baby blue)
- Seche White (for undercoat, not pictured)
So this mysterious Charlotte Russe polish is SO DAMN PRETTY because it's the perfect sweet mint with a hint of pink pearlescent shimmer. I have seen some mint shimmers before but not one quite like this. Know that my photography does not do this polish justice. You also can't see the flecks of pearl shimmer in the gradient shots, either. If the sun was a thing in Canada this polish would be better shown off in the bottle or as a mani on its own with some real rays reflecting off those perfect pinkish/purple flecks.... ahhhh breathtaking. If anyone can figure out what the hell this polish is actually called or who on earth may have real swatches of it online.... or any dupes that are the same in colour to this polish I will forever be your slave.
I almost forgot I owned this polish, but now that I remembered that I do, I plan on giving this polish more of a leading role in a future mani :)
|Dear Charlotte Russe polish: Why are you so pretty yet I can't find you anywhere????|
