Essie Need a Vacation

I needed some cheering up because of the cold snowy weather, so yesterday I decided to use a light pink nail polish. My pink of choice was Essie’s Need A Vacation:

I love this light bubble gum pink color, but the application is streaky and can be quite frustrating. I needed 3 thick coats for it not to be too sheer. In the pics the polish is applied over Orly clear base and covered with a clear glossy top.

I was going to do a french mani with white & silver tips, but as it often happens to me, I ended up with something different :) The stripes design is painted freehand with a thin nail art brush.

The list of products I used:

  • Orly Nail Defense base
  • Essie Need a Vacation – light pink creme
  • White acrylic paint
  • Orly Dazzle – well pigmented silver nail polish (great to paint with!)
  • Clear top to seal the acrylic design

    Your artwork using your nails as the canvas is simply wonderful. Each different color combo makes me drool with envoy that they aren’t my nails.

    Keep up the artwork!!
