Ikat Nails!

Hey everyone!

I'm back from Maine! Had an awesome time in one of my favorite places! I did injure a nail while there though! Luckily it's my right hand so I won't have to photograph it. I was hiking down a mountain and slipped, and my camera was in my thin backpack and smashed my middle finger. Now I have a big blue bruise under my nail. :(  Luckily you can't really tell when it's polished. Plus I'd much rather bruise my finger than break my camera.

Anyways, this is a mani I did before I went to Maine. It was my first attempt at an Ikat mani and I love it!! I used pretty much the same color scheme as my last mani because I'm loving these colors together. Next mani is 100% different though, I promise & can't wait to share it!

What do you think?

I used:
  • China Glaze: Highlight Of My Summer
  • OPI: My Vampire Is Buff
  • Essie: Playdate
  • Essie: Good As Gold
  • Essie: Turquise & Caicos
  • Essie: Absolutely Shore
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat
