February Nail Polish Haul with an Accent
Over the last couple of weeks I have added to my nail polish collection a little bit. Between a visit to Cosmoprof and Sally’s Beauty Supply it got a bit out of control.
I’ve had a chance to try out a few of the different colours already, but if there is a particular one you want to see in action, let me know and I can get some pictures up!
The popular nail trend of an “accent nail” is something I hand’t tried out at all yet, so I thought it was about time I did some experimenting. My first trip on this adventure was adding some white China Glaze Crackle in Lightning Bolt to create an accent nail. I thought this was sort of different and fun – my husband however hated it and said “It looks like a 2-year old did your nails.” So I will let you be the judge! (On a side note though, he hates Crackle polishes as a whole.)
I wasn’t satisfied that the accent nail was a complete failure, despite my husbands “encouragement” and I decided to try it out with a different twist as well. Take a look at Paper Chasing by China Glaze with Orly’s Winter Wonderland glitter polish as an accent.
My last example of an accent nail might just be my favourite, but I can’t decide. For this I used Sweet Hook on 4 of my fingers (also from China Glaze’s new Electropop Collection) and for my accent nail, I used Vintage Violet from Fingerpaints.
What I think is so cool too, is that the combinations are endless. You can mix and match and take it one step further if you want by doing the coloured accent nail like above and then adding glitter to it, or a crackle nail polish!
What do you guys think? Are you a fan of the accent nail trend?
Very interested in hearing your thoughts on this!
