Palm Springs. I went there a few weeks ago, and all I saw was heat, heat, trendy eateries, an uber-cute population, and more heat. That was until the last day where I was begging the 113 degree temperature to turn me into the bronze goddess, I know my skin secretly desires to be. As I was baking, I turned to my right and I saw a mirage: a cute blonde with emeralds on her fingertips. Sipped some cucumber water, and asked her what was on her nails, and bada bing bada boom! I fell in love with my absolute FAVORITE new summer shade!
Emerald Bling .. Yes, please!
So, back to me, the cute blonde, and her nailpolish. I asked her what she used, as I guessed it had to be OPI, Essie, Deborah Lippman, The Color Club – all some of my favorite nailpolish brands. I was shocked at her response:
“I grabbed some black nailpolish, painted one coat, and then picked up some cheaper green glittery nailpolish and painted it over the black after it dried. Pretty cool, huh?”
Heck yea it was pretty cool!
So obviously, I had black nailpolish “Black on Black”, and swooped up “Call You Later” – both by Sinful Colors, painted a coat of black, let it dry, and then painted two coats of green glitter. (Priced at $1.99 each, it’s almost a scandal how affordable this polish is.) Anyway end result? LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
The best part is that the black polish further enhances the green, so it literally looks like you have emerald glazed fingertips! I got a ton of compliments and lots like myself were shocked at how easy this look was. DIY and try it out!
Can’t wait to try this out with more fun colors! Stay cool ladies and gents!
