Pyramid tips with Essie Fair Game

Eeek! Tipwear already...

Hi everyone! These pyramid chevron tips were made with Catrice Raspberry Fields Forever and Essie Fair Game. Both polishes are amazing to work with. Raspberry Fields Forever is a bright folly red, which has a pink hue that's much better visible in real life. It has the great formula and easy application that I'm used to from most of Catrice's creme polishes, I only used two coats and a layer of Seche Vite, shiny! Because Fair Game has that hint of blue that makes the polish so special, I thought it would look nice next to the pinkish Catrice. I just love the combination of pinks and blues, no matter how subtle ;-) I've never worn Fair Game as a full mani and question if I ever will, because as much as I like it, I just think it works better as an accent next to other colors. At least, on my skintone that is, I bet it would look gorgeous on people with a nice tan!

  10. Thanks everyone for your sweet comments!

    @NailsByCourteney and Lúu Nolasco.: I used tape strips on top of Raspberry Field, that I arranged in the pyramid shape, then I applied Fair Game over it and removed the tape strips.

    @Andrea: I certainly will. I'm just a bit busy at the moment, but it will be there, I promise :-) Just bear with me!

    @Anonymous: For my tape manis, all I use is regular stationery tape. But you might prefer something else, so just experiment with different sorts of tape to figure out what works best for you.

    @Wig Wam: OMG, I LOVE that movie hahah. It's one of my favorite Disney movies, it's so funny, no matter what age you are ;-)
