I have been on the hunt for the perfect navy hued nail polish for months, nay years. So many I found were too blue, too gray, too pale… But alas, the God’s at Essie heard my telepathic plight and recently released just for me (or so I tell myself) “After School Boy Blazer”. Giddy ol’ me scooped that ish up SO FAST. But now, how to wear it? I could pull it off by itself but I wanted to go a bit further. I’m not one to be content with bare boned basics. I decided to play off the Navy as a New Neutral with some trending baby blue (Sally Hansen’s “Barracuda”). Together, a match made in a blue heaven.
I started with the all over navy nails. Using cut up scotch tape I created diamonds to paint the Barracuda in. Be sure the base coat is 100% dry before putting the tape on or it will pull off. Next up, slather on some of your top color. I love that the scotch tape allows me to be a little messy, because let’s be real nobody is good at painting with their non-dominant hand.
Next: let them dry. Or, do as I do and take the dog to the park *thinking* your nails are dry and then come home and start all over again. Your call. Then, take pictures and share them with the internet.
Now take some vino or mimosa and indulge yourself in a little #selfdatesunday. Enjoy!
