Summer Nails with a Twist
Hello lovely readers. Today I have a simple mani to share, and I have to say, I reeeeeally love it!
I was inspired to track down this polish after seeing Marta of Chit Chat Nails use it recently. WOW! This polish is so perfect for Summer… “Key Lime Twist” by Orly. I would definitely classify it as a pastel neon yellow with lime undertones. As with most neons, it is SO difficult to capture the true color in photos, but this is pretty close. Just imagine this color being eye-searingly bright. Between the color of the polish and the x-design, I’m pretty sure you could see my nails clearly from quite a distance! LOL I used three coats here, but you might be able to get away with two. Formula was perfect. It leveled out really well too.
I added some silver accents with Ciaté “Fit For a Queen” and x-pattern stencils from What’s Up Nails. I LOVED these stencils. They were so easy to use and they fit my (rather large) nails very well. I sponged the silver on with the stencil and I think the effect was smoother than just painting the silver on over the stencil. I’ll definitely be using these again!
So, I hope you like these as much as I do. This mani definitely put me in the mood to hit the beach.
Thanks for reading!
