|three polishes mixed together to get this look|
So this one… I saw the Deborah Lippman Glitter in the Air nail polish back when it was released and I remember wanting it soooooooooooooooooo bad. I was jonesin' for it! However, I couldn't justify spending THAT much on that polish (ironic now considering how much I have spent on polish). Some reviews of it were also kinda less than stellar so I got over it.
One day, I was just browsing the nail polish section in Shoppers (like I normally do), when I happened to come across Revlon's Whimsical! Now, damn y'all it's pretty much the closest dupe to the GITA polish in drug store brands. So I bought it and applied it and found that it wasn't opaque enough to give me that look I wanted. It actually made my nails look like I had a fungal infection or something because the polish has that greenish vibe in it.
So I tried different ways of wearing it. I put Whimsical over top of OPI Samoan Sand, and it looked alright but not the look I wanted. I will try that again with a more nude/neutral polish. I also put it over top of other aqua/green/teals but kind of left it alone after a while. Then I bought turquoise & caicos and came up with this mani. Since it's spring time and people are celebrating Easter soon, I decided now's a good as time as any to post this up. Enjoy!
