NOTD: OPI & Essie Layering Combo
Following 2 coats of the "Do You Lilac It?", I added one thin coat of Essie's Nude Beach. This polish is a sheer, irridescent cream color and created a stunning effect on my nails. I wish you could see it better in the photo! It really looked great in the sunlight. (This photo was taken right after I painted my nails...before cleanup...at about 2 am!) I personally think this sheer color would add interest to any cream polish.
Of course, as always, I added 2 coats of Seche Vite over the layers of polish as well. This DIY mani has stayed on now for 5 days! I am a firm believer in "You pay for what you get" and these polishes are no exception! BUT...I got the OPI polish on a buy 3 get one free and the Essie polish was a find at TJMaxx on the clearance rack for $0.70!!!! No, that is NOT a type-o! I got 6 polishes for that price last week when I went bargain hunting there. Talk about a deal!
What are your favorite poiish combos? Are there any you think I should try specifically? What are the OPI colors you can't live without? I am in the market to purchase a few more OPI shades and can't quite make up my mind!
