Name : Summer Sunrise
Colours Used: Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em/ If You Moust You Moust/ Are We There Yet?
Today I am featuring a super cool mani that my mom discovered. By combining three of OPI’s beautiful shades she created the appearance of a summer sunrise on her nails. I have spent some time at the beach this summer and my favourite times have been watching the sunrise and sunset when the sky becomes nature’s canvas. I tried this mani too so I will share the steps for creating a seamless blend of colours.
First I used Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em as a base coat, it is a jelly formula so it took two coats to become opaque. Unfortunately, waiting for the polish to dry is painful when you are applying multiple colours but my OPI RapiDry spray helped the process along.
Next I applied Are We There Yet? to the top half of my nail and waited until it was fully dry. Finally I took a make-up sponge and painted If You Moust You Mouse on to the edge and sponged the pink in the middle. Of course each nail is not exactly the same as the next as it is hard to be accurate with a sponge, but then again every sunset is different!
I was happy with the effect and to ensure it lasted a little longer I applied two coats of clear varnish to seal the deal.
I hope you are enjoying what is left of summer and that this manicure will encourage you to get out and check out the sunrise and sunset. I will continue to do this manicure throughout the colder months to remind me of those wonderful and carefree days of summer.
