I have been rubbish at blogging this week. As in - I haven't posted at all! I also wore bare nails to work for FOUR days in a row. I know, I know... I'm ashamed.
Anyway, this is only week 2 of the British Nail Bloggers' Colour Me Crazy challenge, so I can't give up already! I did these nails a few days ago (they were my one day where I didn't wear bare nails to work) and didn't like them much, so didn't write a post. But then I thought I might as well post them...
The orange is OPI's Juice Bar Hopping, from the new(ish) full size neon range. I didn't use a white base for this, because I like it as it is. This is two coats. Juice Bar Hopping is a fabulous bright, juicy orange, with a slightly sheer finish. It dries to a satiny sheen, so I added topcoat for these photos, which really brings out the oh-so-juicy colour!
I used W7 Black on my accent nail, and added a bunch of rhinestones that were a Christmas present. I love the rhinestone effect, but this is where I became unhappy with the design - I really like Juice Bar Hopping, and I like the accent nail, but I don't like them together. The rhinestones are a lovely colour, but next to Juice Bar Hopping, they look really washed out and pale. I should have paired them with an all-black look, or with something else that was a proper contrast. Oh well!
