Turquoise pyramids


Hello everyone! How are you? I hope fine :) I'm alright, but something terrible did happen today! Somehow one nail of my left hand got teared a bit this week. I've been really good and didn't touch it for days but I guess the stress had taken over today, because I kept picking on it and now I've got a little nub there. Boohoo! So I made the rest of my nails shorter too to make it less noticeable. And so I won't be taken any pictures for a little while, because I don't like my nails this short :( But lucklily I still have a few manis from the vault for you. And today's post is one of them.
My basecolor is P2's Groovy. What a wonderful polish! I don't own many P2 polishes but my mom bought me some bottles a few weeks ago. I really loved the elegant shape of the bottles and I love them even more now when I found out how perfect Groovy was. It's a muted shade of teal, with a perfect creme formula and you can get away with one coat of it. Lovely! The next day I decided to add the 'pyramid' design, like I used in the 'military chic' mani. I used Wet 'n Wild Carribean Frost for it, which gave a subtle ton-sure-ton effect, I really like that shimmery teal polish :) And as my finishing touch I mattified the look with the sadly discontinued Essence Matt topcoat. Maybe I'll give China Glaze's Matte Magic a try when I'm through my back-ups. Anyway, enough rambling for today! ;) Have a great night!

  1. Very lovely, I love this color combo. :) Essence's has repacked that matt tc into one of those special toppers, the Soft Touch effect, so it's still available just in another bottle. xD

  5. Awe, (((hugs))) for the boo-boo nail. :( It bums me out something serious when a nail gets injured. I love this mani though! I love your nail art so much - it's always super cool, flawlessly executed, and brilliantly designed! You also always choose such perfect polish combinations too! <3 And I have to say, I LOVE P2 polishes. LOVE. They aren't available here in the states but I have been lucky enough to swap for some. Enjoy your new P2 pretties! :D
