It's been forever since I've done any kind of mix-and-match/skittlette–style manicure—I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoy them! Inspired by the darker blue and brown flecks in my base color, Pahlish Midsummer Skies, this waterfall/stamping combo really captures both the chill & warmth of the season for me.
On top of the Midsummer Skies base, I stamped my thumb and ring finger using OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue! and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys with the MoYou London Festive 04 plate. Then I did the waterfall on my index and middle finger with the following polishes:
- OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue!
- OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys
- FNUG Bandana
- piCture pOlish Bette
The glittery pinky nail accent is Dance Legend Road to Nowhere.
I probably never would have considered blue and brown for a color scheme for my own nails, but I'm really in love with how this turned out. It's so perfectly wintery!
I have to be honest, though: the stamping for this one gave me fits. Trying to get the two colors to work right in one stamp and stamp the image straight on my nail was a little too much for my patience levels. The stamping here is still not quite how I want it—kinda crooked, and not centered correctly—but I reached a point where I just couldn't redo it again. Sometimes "almost perfect" has to be good enough!
Thanks for looking, and I hope those who celebrated it had a wonderful holiday!
