Way-Cool Mani Wednesday: Lilac & Nude

I've come up with a new feature "Way-Cool Mani Wednesday" The past two Wednesdays, I've done posts featuring some fun, two accent, glittery, nail art, or all three type manis. This is a change for me, as I'm usually a nail polish purest. I have to say I'm loving experimenting with different colors, finishes, and sometimes nail art in one mani!

I'd love to make this a weekly feature to show you what I've come with. Be mindful, I'm not some nail artist, so don't expect some masterpieces here. You can expect to see some fun, simple, and easy to do yourself way-cool manis! I hope you like this new weekly feature. 

Here is a mani I did using all three of the mentioned above, two accents, glittery, and nail art! 


Polishes Used: Karadshian Beauty Afterglow, OPI Do You Lilac It, and NOPI Inner Sparkle (Selena Gomez)
Manicure Description: I painted my thumb, index, and pinky finger with Kardashian Beauty Afterglow. I painted my middle finger with Afterglow, and used the Saran Wrap technique of OPI Do You Lilac It? on top. My ring finger is Do You Lilac It? topped with NOPI Inner Sparkle. 

I really love this one. I like the pairing of the colors, and how the whole thing turned out. It's a softer look, but  with something a little special! 

Happy Wednesday!

    This is so cute! I love the nude and purple together. I'm not usually big on nudes, but that nude you're wearing looks amazing on you! I kind of want it, but it's from the Kardashians, which sadly makes me less inclined haha

  6. Thank you! It is SO hard to find a nude that works with my skin tone. The Kardashians are worthless to me, but to have a nude that works so nicely I was willing to overlook that aspect. :p

  7. Thanks! Yes, I think they had some copyright infringement going on with the Khroma name, so it's now Kardashian Beauty.
