Hey people! I've been in a fun, happy, skip-around-in-a-field-of-daisies mood the last week-ish because it's summer break and it's finally sunny and warm!! (In case you haven't noticed from my weather rants, I LOVE warm weather!) Of course I still have a ton to do, but I'm ignoring all that for now ;).
This summer-high put me in a mood for pink nails. After I did my nails, of course, I was reminded why I don't like most pink polishes. Let's take a look:
The actual color is way less bright than shown in the pictures. It's more of a warm, light, peachy-rose pink. Wow, great color description, right? Anyways there's gonna be a more color-accurate picture later in this post.
Sally Hansen Pink Sapphire is a light pink with pink and silver shimmer. Application was nice and smooth. Opaque in two coats, but I did three to be safe.
So it's not that I think this color is ugly on me (or just in general), but it's just that Pink Sapphire is so BORING! Maybe it's because I don't like pink a whole lot, but I was already bored with this color on the first day! I was lazy so I didn't want to redo my nails, so I decided to do some nail art. I followed Mary's Watermelon Nails Tutorial on Swatch and Learn, but obviously I used pink instead of red. Here's the (messy) result:
Please ignore the horrible cuticles and the shriveled-up looking nail on the index finger. The tip has a bunch of marks on it from my hair. Don't ask...
This is the color-accurate photo I was talking about. I didn't realize that all of my outdoor photos made the pink look super bright until I looked at them on the computer, so I just took this quick indoor photo. It's slightly blurry, but the color's dead-on.
I really need to work on taking double-hand pictures. The position of my hands in this picture just look...awkward. And as always, click on the pictures to enlarge.
Obviously, I did a really messy job doing these, but I think the overall look is super cute! However, I prefer Mary's original look because 1) it's just done so much better and 2) I like the red better than pink. All that aside, I absolutely love this design for summer! And after all, watermelon is my favorite fruit! :D
And a last random note: I totally just realized that I unconsciously coordinated my accessories today to match my watermelon nails! All pink and green:
I was carrying a pink wristlet and wearing green flip flops and my neon green jelly-band watch. And of course, I was chewing watermelon gum :).
Little thing to smile for today: watermelon, of course!! :D
