Quickie Post – Speckled Eggs NOTD
Just another quick post for you all today. This month has been CRAZY busy for me. I’ve been working 50-60 hour weeks at my midnight shift job AND doing 20 hours a week at the salon. The mani I’m showing you today is the first time I’ve painted my nails since I showed you all the OPI Pure Lacquer Apps Peacock design last week!!
Thankfully my last day of my apprenticeship at the salon was Friday, so I’ll have some time to rest and get back into my usual blogging schedule starting in August (until I take my state boards anyway :-P). I’ll most likely be absent for the last week of July because I’ll be in Ohio visiting family, attending one of my oldest friend’s wedding, and hanging out with my girl Dana from Polished Claws Up! Dana and I went to middle/high school together and really connected over our mutual love of polish last year when we both attended another old friend’s wedding. Maybe she can teach me a thing or two about all the vintage polish finds, that girl has a dusty hunting gift!
NOTD: Speckled Eggs With Cirque Ophelia
Annie of Cirque Nail Polish (some swatches can be seen [HERE]) posted this look with Cirque’s Ophelia on her Facebook page and I just knew that I had to recreate it! I immediately purchased Ophelia and then tried to replicate the look once I finally had time to
breathe paint my nails again. ^_^
First I laid down a base of Sally Hansen White On (2 coats), then I added 1 coat of Cirque Ophelia, and then I did 2 thin coats of Essie Marshmallow on top. I added my top coat and then I was in love.
I absolutely adore this manicure! My coworkers said it reminds them of speckled eggs that you get in your Easter baskets. I have to agree, and now I want some speckled eggs to nom on!
That’s it for today folks, and thank you all again for being so patient with my lack of posts this month. I promise I have a ton of great things in store for you once I get settled back into my nail polish groove next month. Hopefully I can stumble across some great polish and food finds while I’m in the ‘Buckeye State’. ^_^
