Seriously super lazy Sunday for me. I'm exhausted since I've definitely been trying to do too much for work and school and the blog. It all hit me today when I tried to tackle 2 challenges and realized it wasn't gonna happen. I could do one or the other not both and still have time to study. Ah such is life. So I thought I'd show you a manicure from months ago. Lol all of my Sunday posts have been like this lately ;)
When I received the Elevation Polish Sea Collection Weddell Sea was one of those polishes that stumped me. Super pretty whitish gray holo with a shimmer in the base. I could not capture it's elegance and its beauty. You can see what I did with it previously here. When I tried to do nail art for it I failed over and over. This was one of the fails. I called it a fail because I felt when I looked at what I created I'd overwhelmed the base color. Then instead of going with it I stopped halfway deciding not to fill up my somewhat empty canvas. Looking back on it now though I think it's kind of pretty (lol clearly biased and delusional).
I created this mani using all the polishes from the Sea Collection so all the blues and greens you see swept haphazardly across Weddell are from that collection as well. To fill in the fish I used Silversword. I don't think this polish gets nearly enough play. It's still insanely stunning to me months and months later. What shocked me the most when I was going back through my archives is that I have a TON of EP nail art that I haven't shown. I'll have to amend that ;)
Basecoat/Topcoat: Duri Rejuvacote / Sally Hansen Diamond Flash
Basecolor: Elevation Polish Weddell Sea
Accent colors: Elevation Polish The Med 2, Ceram Sea,and Silversword
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas Neon Blue (#30)
Stamping plate: Messy Mansion MM29
So what do you think? Sometimes fails are fun too because they can really teach you things to not do in the future. This can be related specifically to a plate or a design. Lol I just had a fail earlier this week. It made me so mad I had to take it off immediately and create a new mani stat. Unfortunately Weddell Sea is sold out at the moment on Elevation Polish, but it will likely be back on the 7th of September if you want to pick it up. Thanks for reading and I'll see you next post....
