Wedding Mani Guest Post: Marisa from Polish Obsession

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:

Artificial (Yellow) Light

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!

  13. The Fair & White is really good. It had a great formula, opaque in two coats and applied easily.
