Drip Drop

Hey all

I've been wearing a lot of black polish lately but I find I get bored with it on my nails. I used to love black nail polish on its own. It suits other people but on me it's just too plain. I tend to team it up with brighter colours and this really works. The black really makes the bright colour pop and it makes for a really simple manicure that looks harder than it really was. Win-win!

I started with 2 coats of Essence Effect nail polish in The Black Cat. This is a latex matt polish. I have to say the more I use it the more I dislike it. I don't like the finish it has, it's not matte but it's not glossy. It's weird. The formula is ok though it takes a bit longer to dry. The "matte" effect is pretty quick but your nails are easily smudged for a good few minutes after.

I painted half of each nail with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Moheato. I freehanded this as you won't see the line at the end so it makes no difference if it's perfectly straight or a bit dodgy. Once that was dry I used one of the bigger dotting tools and added 3 dots of the opposite colour to each side. I added a glossy topcoat to blend the colours together a bit more.

I like the effect it has. It took a bit of practice to get the right sized dotting tool for my nails. Definitely something I would do again and I might try it with 3 colours next time and see how that works out.
