I was intrigued when I saw the pic floating around Pinterest of the cocktail mani. Presumably, the concept is that the thumb and first two fingers of your dominant hand are accented so the bling is visible when you hold your wine glass.
So here's my take on it. I wanted something bright and fresh for summer so I settled on pink. The base color is Essie French Affair, which is a cool toned pink. It went on surprisingly well considering I have so many application issues with Essie polishes. This is two coats. On top I layered two of my favorite glitterbombs. First was Funky Fingers Sand & Stilettos. S&S is a silver holographic glitter but I'm convinced it leans pink. You can also substitute Studio M or Color Club Magic Attraction (which is the same polish). Then on top I added OPI Teenage Dream which we all know is a pink base loaded with lots of holographic glitter.
What do you think of the "cocktail mani"? My B/F's mom says she thinks it looks like I forgot to paint 2 of my fingernails. Love it or leave it?
