Blue Waves

Hi everyone! How is your spring going?

I bought myself some Essie polishes from their last year’s collections. They weren’t available in my country and I couldn’t buy them when they came out. But now I found a web site that sells drug store line from Essie (the wide brush) and I bought myself 10 polishes :O. And they were really cheap, 3,5€ each. I don’t know if they are any cheaper anywhere else.

So I decided to use the new Essie polishes and the result was very colourful (of course I didn’t use all of them in this mani :)).

The dark blue is Essie – Style Cartel. A gorgeous deep blue with a jelly finish. I looved how easy was the application. Easy to work around the cuticles, no streakiness and opaque in two coats. Deep blue perfection!

The light blue is Essie – Strut Your Stuff. Also easy to work with. It did flood my cuticles a little, but it was easy to clean. Opaque in two coats with a jelly finish and also no streakiness.

A close up on the waves. To achieve these I used some regular tape and cut it with scissors which have this wavy pattern. I wanted to do the regular chevron pattern, but I didn’t have any stickers at home, so I did this instead. Firstly I applied the light blue polish and waited for it to dry. Then I put on the tape and the dark blue polish to create the waves.

And I added yellow background (btw that is the wall in dining room behind my hand) to emphasize the colours.

And here with my red shirt. I think the yellow works better. What are your thoughts on this one?

    I love these two colors together with the waves. Makes me want to just escape to Barbados right now!

    It does doesn't it 🙂 While I was taking photos of this one, I was daydreaming about the summer and how we will go to the sea and lay around on the beach. I just can't wait to do that 😀
