I remember when I was in elementary school, I had this friend named Marie who always seemed to have the coolest stuff. The coolest clothes, the coolest hairstyles, whatever she wore- it was awesome. Looking back I think it was just that she was adventurous and confident so she didn’t care what people thought, but I was a super introverted child and was constantly worried what people thought, therefore I wasn’t fashionably adventurous. I liked tried and true styles. Well, when Marie would try something and it got a positive response, that would give me the confidence to try it. Now, being the trend-setter she was, she didn’t like boring-ol-me copying her style and I remember her being mad at me about that quite often. Now that I’m an adult and I see kids at work being like this I just roll my eyes because it’s not like anyone really has the lockdown on any particular fashion, but at the time when I was a kid I sure thought they did!! Now I’m a lot more adventurous (probably due to having a lot more self-confidence) but I do still love to copy a good look!! Who doesn’t? If you say you don’t, you’re lying. ;p We all like to see something cute and use it as our inspiration. Well, these nails are a good example of that. I follow Traci (from drinkcitra.com) on Instagram, Twitter, and around town (JK!!) and I also follow her blog. Last week I saw these nails, was blown away by them, and had to give them a little try. Let’s see my variation of her nails!
Nude with Yellow Gradient Tip Nails
For these nails I just painted my nails with Femme Couture French Cafe and then used BM 301 to stamp SH Lightening on the tips and Seche Vite top coat. I really need to get OPI Tickle My France-y like Traci used cuz that color is PERFECT!!! I like French Cafe, but it looks like the color of Barbie’s legs to me… which isn’t bad but I think I might like Tickle My France-y better.
I loved these nails so much!! But- then I thought- oooh how would a little stamp look on these? So after work I stamped over these nails with BM 314 and Konad Special White.
I think I like these nails better without the second stamp, but I don’t hate them with it. What do you think? And- don’t Traci’s nails look awesome?! I love those blue gradient tips. Let me know what you think, and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
