another blotty mani!

I really, really like doing blotted manis.

It's just so stinkin' easy but looks really great.
This manicure kinda combines two other recent looks I posted - the blotty mani with the Essie colors and the leopard mani with the CG Sunsational colors.
It uses the spongey/blotty technique with both Essie and CG colors.

I started with two coats of China Glaze - Highlight of My Summer.
I waited for it to dry, and then added a coat of China Glaze - That's Shore Bright on top, and quickly blotted most of it off with a balled-up tissue.
I repeated that process with Essie - Madison Ave-hue.
Topcoat to cover the texture, and you're done.

I had a bunch of people ask me how to do this look while I was wearing it. They look at me pretty funny when I tell them how... And then I just tell them to go to my website and then sometimes I get funnier looks. Hey, I'm a nail nerd. It's okay. I embrace it.


  1. Great combination of colors!

  2. Awesome color combo! I love the contrast between the colors and the overall effect is so cool!

  3. This is so pretty, it reminds me of Bruiser candy bars!
