If you all looked at my post yesterday about my Ulta purchase, you already have a sneak preview for the nails I am about to show you all. If not, here's a link to yesterday's post, or you can just keep on reading.
I think this type of nail design is called color blocking, but it my version may be different because they sections are not really blocks. But anyway, I was really excited about this. Like I said yesterday, I am finally glad I found my perfect orange. This is Tu-Lip Service by Ulta. It's a glittery orange-peach that has a little bit of a gold hue to it in some lights and in the bottle.
For this notw, I have two coats of Tu-Lip Service "wedged" between Seche Clear (basecoat) and Seche Vite (topcoat). The color really is pretty opaque, but when the sunlight hits it plus the use of my camera, it does look like the smile line is showing a little on my index and pinky fingers. But it's hardly noticeable in real life.
I think another really cool thing about this nail polish (well all of the Ulta minis) is that it is the perfect size. I have always complained about OPI's minis and that they are extremely tiny. But these cuties are 7ml. They have the perfect brush as well. I feel like it's one of the nail polish bottles that allows you to get all the nail color out, and minis are especially hard to do that with. Not this one. I mean, if Ulta sold all their polishes this size for like $1.50 or $2.00 my nail polish collection would probably have three times as many nail colors as it does now.
As much as I like the little bottle, this color really is pretty enough for a full bottle. But until Ulta makes one, I guess it's just me and the little guy for now.
Oh, and lest I forget my accent nail.
I took step by step pictures on how I did it; however, this is already a really long post, and I am kinda tired and still have history work to do, so I will post a tutorial later on this week.
But if you still want more nail polish designs, just check out some of my other posts in the archive section on the right side of my blog.
Here are some more pictures of this week's mani:
