Today I have my recent nail of the days for May. I decided last month to just combine all of them into one post for the month and do it that way from now on. As always, these are looks that I was either experimenting with or looks that I wore to work and on the weekends that didn't make it to the blog. Clearly the trend last month was a simple glitter accent nail. My boss even asked me why I only had one nail painted differently on each hand haha! Oddly enough I also have had a surgeon ask me that on the operating table right before going under for surgery. It's like having an accent wall painted in your home people ;)
First off I would like to apologize for my ring finger. It's not some kind of gross sore or anything, I got stung two weekends ago by some kind of bug and I'm just a really slow healer. It was really obvious when I tried to photoshop it out so I just had to leave it....sorry. The first mani I have to show is one that I created when I was swatching Essie Urban Jungle. I started with some plain white polka dots and finished off with a gradient chevron using L'oreal Le Pastille and L'oreal Spot Me.
Next up is a bright and punchy mani that was a regular work mani for me. We wear shorts, flip flops, hoodie sweatshirts...it's pretty much the opposite of strict. This mani is a combination of OPI Kiss Me I'm Brazilian with an accent of OPI Muppets World Tour.
Next up is another mani where I was just messing around with colors. I had just gotten the polish on my ring finger and wanted to find a way to use it right then. I started with OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana and used a small dotting tool to create polka dots with Essie Urban Jungle. My accent nail is Smokey Mountain Lacquers Coconut Crunch, which was on my lemming list and I scored when it was on sale because it won't be restocked again.
Below is another mani worn during the work week. This combination is Essie Lilacism with an accent nail in OPI Let's Do Anything We Want!
Here is another mani that was a result of me keeping a swatched polish on and I want to say that I wore this on the weekend. I usually joke that my weekend manis are more toned down than my work manis because it's usually true :) This combination is OPI Feel the Mo-heat-oes Green (which you can enter to win here) and some placed glitter using Nicole by OPI Be Awesome.
Another swatched mani and this one I'm sure that I sported on the weeked. For this combo I used OPI Down to the Core-al with an accent of two coats of OPI Crown Me Already.
Last up is a mani that I wore at the very beginning of the month of May. Although it's hard to tell from this post, I definitely wore green polishes and purple polishes pretty heavily throughout the month. This combo is Zoya Wednesday with OPI Lights of Emerald City.
There you have it, what I wore on my nails in the month of May. I do end up wearing a different polish every single day but they usually end up being a plain color on all my nails, which I don't take pictures of. I did toss around the idea of doing a post of all the manis I wore for an entire month, regardless of what they were, so you guys will have to let me know if you would like that kind of idea. I will tell you one thing, the accent nail is still going strong into June :)
