Hey everyone! This is the first time I’ve ever done a guest post, so I was honored to be able to do this post for Alyssia.
Today I’m doing a “Lucky Dip Mani” and followed the instructions in Alyssia’s previous post. The number which came out for me was three, so I picked three polishes from my stash, one from each drawer of my helmer: at the moment I only need three drawers for polish.
The first three that came out were China Glaze Creative Fantasy, Boots No7 Totally Teal and Models Own Snowflake. As I didn’t see much hope with this combination due to how many coats Creative Fantasy needs, I doubled up and dipped again. The next polishes which came out were a-England Princess Tears, Ozotic 526 and a W7 Mystery Polish which I got in a set from TK Maxx that doesn’t have a name. I knew I had to use at least three, but managed to use all of them except the Ozotic.
I decided to do a skittlette mani, featuring a gradient using Princess Tears and the W7, a dotty nail using Totally Teal over Creative Fantasy, a plain nail of Totally Teal and layer Snowflake over Creative Fantasy for the final nail.
I was really happy with the gradient nails, I would never have considered pairing these two. If I was choosing a purple and teal to combine I would probably have gone for brighter colours, but all in all it didn't come out too bad.
Thanks again to Alyssia for having me!
Wow I love the mani that you came up with Emma! So cute and the gradient turned out amazing! I'm kind of gutted you didn't find a use for the Ozotic polish, but mainly because it looks so stunning in the bottle! I love that you managed to use two colours that you wouldn't normally put together and turn them into something cute and wearable! Thanks so much for doing a post for me!
Be sure to check out Emma's blog here, and feel free to take on the Lucky Dip Mani yourself!
I promise I'll be back soon!
