Speckled Robin’s Egg Nails!

The first thing I thought of after I finished this mani were the little mini Cadbury eggs that come out around Easter. You know the little speckled eggs that come in the pretty pastel colors? I love them, I can go through an entire bag by myself in just a few days!

For this mani I used 2 coats of Essie ‘Mint Candy Apple’ which is a pale cool leaning mint green. It was more intense on the nail than I thought it would be, it’s still a pastel but it has a rich color. I then added 1 coat of Sephora by OPI ‘It’s Real 18k Gold Topcoat’ (purchase here; on sale for $15.00 now!) which is a fine speckled 18k gold flake topcoat that’s densely packed! And last but not least I added butter London ‘Matte Finish’ topcoat for a cool matte finish (repetitive, I know lol). The matte finish definitely lightened up the shade and gave the gold flecks an unusual dimension.

And of course I had to wear my cool mint colored rhinestone bow flats… Can we say perfect match? Of course, Ninja Polish’s white gold topcoat (see link here to sign up for the e-mail notification) would have been more appropriate but I’m still waiting on that one to come out!

I just love this mani and even though I’m going through that strange transition stage with my nail shape I really embraced this look on my nails. In the next couple of weeks you’ll see my nails s l o w l y become more oval which is my goal! What does this mani remind you of? Would you rock it!? Until next time…

Cheers,
Bridget

    This looks awesome matte! I would most definitely rock this!
    It kinda reminds me of those little speckled chocolate eggs that come out at Easter. I think they’re made by Cadbury? Ugh, now I want some lol
