Delicate Flesh

promotional samples ahead

It has been a while since either of us has done a real "evolving nail" sort of post. When I swatched the CNC Taupey Tips the other day, I couldn't bear to take it off...and since I still had a few other polishes on my desk, this manicure was born.

I didn't really have a plan when I started this manicure. I was so in love with Taupey Tips that I wanted to figure a way to wear it longer. I am obsessed with rose gold lately, and since Body Electric was still on my desk, I figured it was a sign. I mixed the two OPNL polishes together, and sponged them on haphazardly. I love that from far away, it almost looks like marble. Up close, it looks like mottled-but-pretty flesh...which apparently I tend to do often. I don't know what is wrong with my brain.



I will have the final installment in a few days time! I put waaay more effort into it than is reasonable, and I am in love with the outcome. I think one of my polish-related resolutions should definitely be to do more artsy nail...art things. That sentence sucked, but you know what I mean!
