I decided to try a "real" pond manicure this week. I only copped on last week that this was an actual technique. I still love my frog manicure but I thought I'd give the real thing a go (while I still remember what it is!)
The only proper jelly I have to hand is Zoya Paz so I went with an orange theme. I started with 3 coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon manicure in Tahitian Sunset. On my accent nail Ihave 1 coat of Zoya Paz as a base. I freehanded the roses using China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, Essence Happy End and Nyc Picnic on the lawn for the leaves. I added a coat of Zoya Paz on top to complete the pond manicure look.
I have to admit the Pond manicure idea is not for me. The end result just doesn't look good on my nails and it's not something I would bother to try again. It looks ok as an accent nail but I didn't like it as a full manicure at all.
