This manicure was inspired by the pattern in Sheldon Cooper's mother's dress in an episode of The Big Bang Theory. You can see some photos of the dress here. It's a dark brown background with blue paisley print. I like the way it turned out but it wasn't an easy trip to get there. When I when to start painting my nails, I grabbed what I thought was Essence Colour & Go in Just In Case but I accidentally grabbed Luxury Secret instead and didn't realize it until I was all done painting!
The photo at the top of this post is the final, fixed manicure using Just In Case. Since I had the pictures of both manicures, I figured I might as well share them both. The photo directly above this paragraph was taken using Luxury Secret.
Just In Case
Above is a swatch of Just In Case. This was two easy coats. It's a lovely medium brown frosty color. If you aren't careful, this can get a bit brush strokey but it's not too bad. I think it's a great shade!
Just In Case
For the paisley print, I stamped using Pure Ice in Pussy Cat, which is a light frosty blue. I used Bundle Monster Image Plate BM315. The detail is awesome! These new plates are really impressive!
This photo above is a swatch of Luxury Secret. Again two coats that can leave some visible brush strokes but it applies very easily. This is a dark grayish brown frosty that's quite lovely.
I stamped with the same plate and polish as the other look. I feel like Just In Case was more of what I was going for but I really liked both! Which one do you think looks the best?
