Day 1 of the Wedding Themed Manis!
First up is the lovely Marisa from Polish Obsession. I was lucky enough to meet Marisa at a product launch event a few months back and let me tell you, she's just as sweet in real life! I've come to call her my Wish List Wizard since she's seriously killed about 1/3 of my lemmings. As I type this, I'm actually wearing a polish she sent me :)
Anyways, without further ado, here's the gorgeous post Marisa has for you today.
Hi everyone!! I'm so happy to be able to do a guest post on Amandalandish, one of my favorite blogs!! Amanda I hope you're having an awesome time on vacation!
So the twinsies agreed on doing wedding themed manis since Amanda went away for a wedding. I must admit this was a tough one for me, probably because I overthink things too much. I wondered what I could do that didn't require nail art, because I'm just not that good at it. Then it came to me! When I think of weddings, I think of a time of celebration and fun. So I decided to do something that reminds me of the reception. Colorful and sparkly ;0).
|I used Fair & White Splendid, OPI Rainbow Connection, and A-England Morgan Le Fay|
For this mani, I used many layers. I used three coats of Slendid, which is a lovely barbie pink shimmer. I then added a coat of Morgan Le Fay, a sheer silver shimmer. Next, I added a coat of Rainbow Connection, a clear base with multicolored hexagon glitter. I then layered another coat of Morgan Le Fay, another coat of Rainbow Connection, and a final layer of Morgan LeFay. Yep, you read that right, that's 8 coats of polish, ha!
Here's the result:

I really liked how this mani turned out! While it's not exactly what I pictured in my head, it was so fun and sparkly with the multicolored glitter and shimmer. It definitely reminds me of the fun colors I see at wedding receptions. The shimmer makes me think of all the sparkle of the bride in her gown and jewelry. Aaahhh, can you tell I love weddings?
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Thanks so much for reading! Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks for having me Amanda!
While I'm not into glitter, I really, really love this mani and would *gasp* totally wear it! This whole combination is so girly, how could I not? Beautiful, just beautiful.
Thank you so much, Marisa, for creating this! What a way to start!
