I am feel absolutely miserable again. I am so annoyed that barely a week after finishing our meds both my husband and I are sick again. Urgh! So please excuse me for not having too much to say today. I am hoping to do a lot of nothing and hopefully get new meds soon too.
I wasn’t nuts about the final look because it totally looked much better in my head than it did on my nails but I do kinda like the idea. Also, I am committed to sharing everything I try unless it is a complete and utter flop. This wasn’t so I am sharing it 😀
I started off with a purple ombre using a makeup sponge. I like showing the colours I used on their own as well sooooo….the colours I used were:
Essence – Hello Marshmallow
I’ve spoken about this beauty before. It’s one of their newer shades and is a gorgeous lilac creme. I love this colour. It does have super subtle shimmer that is mostly visible in the bottle. This is two coats with no topcoat.
Essence – Oh My Glitter!
This is a gorgeous polish. A beautiful purple packed with micro glitter and a subtle pinkish shimmer. This is also two coats with no topcoat.
Essence – Break Through
This is a deeper darker purple polish that is extremely hard to capture perfectly on camera. This is pretty close though. This is a perfect two coats with no top coat.
So I used these three shades to create an ombre. Once that was done and dried I used my Essence stamping plate to stamp the tiger print in white using the Essence Stampy Polish. I then topcoated it using Essence Quick Dry topcoat.
I messed up a bit with the stamping and some lines look a bit smudged. If you don’t look too closely and maybe squint a little bit then you can hardly tell 😉
After looking a this for a little while I thought that a matte version might actually look nicer. So I added the Essence – Soft Touch topcoat.
I then realised that on the photos you can’t really see much of a difference. In real life though I quite liked it. It’s not perfect but it is definitely eye catching. I also really like the combination of the purples.
Oh my, Isn’t this a very Essence post 😉 What do you think? Hopefully I will be feeling tons better soon and I will then chat more. Hope you are all well and keeping the germs at bay.
Thanks for reading
