Inspired by Jewelry

Afternoon ladies and gents! So last week I posted The Yellow Horror, a mani that I was not super pleased with. I am glad to report that this week's mani is the total opposite. It's funky, a little mismatched, and tons of fun.

So if anyone has been following my blog, you probably know that I am a bit of an accessory queen. In previous posts, such as this one, this one, and this one, I have shown off a bit of my jewelry collection. And today's mani was inspired by another piece of jewelry, a very cool ring I recently purchased at a flea market. I matched this piece with black, white, and deep bronze polishes to pick up the colors in the ring. Also just a quick note: The "white polish" is actually a layering combo. I didn't have a white holographic polish, so I did one layer of a normal white polish and added a layer of the Sally Hansen Satin Glam color, Crystalline, which is a white holographic polish. Originally, I did two coats of Crystalline but noticed the two coats were not completely opaque, which is the look I wanted. Hence, my decision to use a solid white base with Crystalline on top. 

So totally random, but I really am a ring person...meaning if I were to walk into a store, I would most likely buy a ring over earrings, a bracelet, necklace, etc. Do you have a jewelry preference? Also, I only like to wear rings when my nails are done. We all have quirks right?

Now, get ready for photo spam!

And that's it for today! Thanks for stopping by :)
