I started swimming lessons with my little one this week. Chlorine is rough on a mani. Poor OPI It's My Year that I posted yesterday didn't fair so well. I had plans for it, so I had to repolish to do this mani for you.
I took the opportunity to try layering it over black. It looks very different over black. Alone, It's My Year is a pretty, medium purple with a gold shimmer/micro glitter. Over black, you really only see the shimmer. The sheer purple base is camouflaged by the black. That's okay though, because it still looks awesome, as I'm sure you can see.
I knew I wanted to so some designs in black over the top of this polish, I just couldn't decide what design I wanted to do. So I did all of them. :) This is my first mish mash mani and I love it! I like the uniformity in color, but the variety in design makes it super fun and interesting.
My pinkie looks like a buttoned up vest or something. The center of my leopard spots on my ring finger is OPI Outback Aphrodisiac. The inspiration for my middle finger pinwheel came from Holy Manicures. My index finger is pretty is pretty self explanatory and my thumb is simple stripes with a few scattered polka dots.
I had a lot of fun creating this mani. I hope to be able to wear it for a few days so I can admire my handy work for a while. ;)
