NOTD: Addicted to turquoise

Ok, there's a clear pattern in my choice of colors lately. Behold:

Yeah... as pretty as this came out, it's time for a new color scheme in my life. I haven't done anything outside of blue-green at all in the past month at least, huh? Except for a two-day stint with Essie's Smokin' Hot, which I didn't even bother photographing.

Not to say that I don't like this mani- I do! I just need to pace this color a little more.

So most of my fingers are OPI's Cuckou For This Color topped by Essie's Matte About You. I love mattes, i really need to do them more often! Accent finger is Cuckou again, but topped by a layer of Essence's Choose Me! and Revlon's Blue Mosaic. Picture is with three days of wear, although I reapplied the matte because after a day or two it wasn't as matted anymore, it looked more like a dull shine.

Funny thing, accent nails are becoming incredibly popular here lately. I've always done them, but apparently they're in fashion now because someone from the local Big Brother wore it? Weird. I don't watch Big Brother, never have, never will. But I guess it set a good trend?

I got myself a very pale grey, so i'm going to give newspaper nails another shot tonight. I've done them with sheet music before, but I'm gonna use an actual newspaper, I think :)


  1. Amazing! :)

    Visit my blog and become a follower if you want :)

  2. GAh! I love the Essence glitters! We can't get most of them here :/ At least not without more effort than going to a store ^^;

    I should totally buy that OPI; It's gorgeous.

    Somehow, having the two middle fingers as accent nails is becoming a thing here? I don't get it. I like doing the ring finger, but doing the middle *and* ring finger strikes me as odd. I imagine it would not most people, though. But seriously, if you're going to do a 3-2 split, why not make it symmetrical?

    These are the things that keep me up at night ^^;

    I am excited to see your newspaper nails. i've never done them before.

    1. Alas, the newspaper nails were a failure :( the print came out faint and smudgy. I might try to buy proper rubbing alcohol instead of using the crappy vodka that I never drink anyway.

      I'm totally with you on the accent thing- I also see people do their ring fingers and pinky, which I can sorta understand? But if I'm doing two accent nails I do middle finger and thumb.

      My essence bottles are so tiny that I'm almost afraid to use them but they are ridiculously pretty!
