NOTD: Audrey's Rainbow


Yes, another nail of the day, but I've been lazing about the house with plenty of time to "play" in my nail polish. I love nail blogs and tmblrs and am constantly jotting down notes for polish combinations and design ideas. Today's NOTD is a take on one I spotted a few months ago.


Before

The initial look was a base coat of China Glaze for Audrey with a topping of OPI Rainbow Connection. While I had liked this when I saw it online, it looked somewhat wrong in person, incomplete somehow.


After

After spending a few moments trying to decide what could be done to make things look "better" I opted to add a couple coats of Essie Sugar Daddy. The sheer milky pink adds a cloudy, dreamy cast over the existing look making it almost look like a glitter sandwich. I am quite happy with the look. It looks a bit spring-ish, but since we've yet to have any snow accumulate here, it matches the weather quite well.

What are you sporting on your nails?
