spongey springy mani

I liked the new Essie spring polishes so much that I wore two manis with them in one week! That's craziness.


I decided again that I wanted to wear all four colors at once. So I did this sponged/blotted look! (With glitter on top, of course.)


To get this look, I started by painting all of my nails with Essie - Bond With Whomever, the darker of the two purples.
Once that was dry, I added a coat of Essie - Avenue Maintain (blue) and then quickly I blotted most of it off with a balled-up tissue. This removes most of the wet polish but leaves some in a cool textured pattern. And the results are different every time!
I then did the same thing with Essie - Go Ginza (lighter purple) and Essie - Madison Ave-hue (pink.)

On top of all that, I added Sonoma Nail Art - Wine Country Wedding, a really cool white glitter.


It looks a little bit acid-trippy, right? Haha! I'm loving it!
I got a ton of compliments on these nails, too. What do you guys think?
