I have mixed feelings about this one. I love the color combo and the design, but my execution of it is a little sloppy, at best.
I am using a flash pic here because in all the others, the maroon color was showing black. Here are the colors I used.
- Cuticle - Spa Ritual Deep - A gorgeous blue leaning grey with a purple shimmer.
- Middle - Spa Ritual Freedom - Greyed purple with a blue shimmer.
- Tips - Spa Ritual Twilight - Dark maroon shimmer
I love these colors together, the perfect fall combination. Of course, I see all my little imperfections, the biggest being that I wish I would have put a second coat of Freedom in the middle. Twilight could have used a second coat too, to deepen the color. My lines....weelll, let's just not go there.
In real life, all these little mess ups just weren't noticeable and I ended up loving it! For some reason it felt very work appropriate, like it would have gone really well with a dark grey pinstripe suit. I look at these pics, though, and cringe. Damn DMPs! Oh well, I enjoyed it while it lasted :) Thanks for looking and commenting and don't forget to check out all the other stripes and dark colors.
