A comment on my last post about Essie Sand Tropez reminded me how much I love that colour! It's such a good polish - excellent formula, lovely brush, really nice simple colour that combines really well with all sorts of other colours... Anyway, I started thinking about the polishes I wear most often.
As you can see from these photos, these are four polishes I have used a LOT! Here we have Essie Sand Tropez, Rimmel Pro Heart on Fire, China Glaze Ruby Pumps and China Glaze Solar Flare. (Another polish I use a lot, so much so that I'm on my second bottle, is Rimmel 60 Seconds Black Out, but my current bottle is nearly full, so I left it out of the photo). So I thought I'd have a go at using them together, which I don't think I've done before.
This is two coats of Essie Sand Tropez, with Solar Flare daubed at the base of each nail. I'm afraid I can't show you my thumb, as I messed that right up!
On the accent nail is a coat of Rimmel Pro Heart on Fire as a base, and then two coats of the oh-so-beautiful Ruby Pumps.
I like how this looks! I won't be keeping it on for long, because of the messed up thumb - although if I hadn't done that, I think I'd have left this for a few days, as I think it's simple but sparkly!
