Polish Days ~ The Number 5

Purchased by Me

Hey dolls! I’ve missed the last few Polish Days, so I’m happy to be back on board with this month’s theme of The Number 5. When I first saw the theme, I was completely at a lost for what to do. Last night a simple idea came to me; just create a look using five polishes. I saw my recently purchased Cult Nails In the Garden collection and decided to use those since it consisted of five colors.

I started with a base of Morning Glory, a magenta matte that dries to a wax finish. The formula was excellent and super pigmented. Only one coat was needed, but I did another for photo purposes. On the accent nail, I applied Let’s Get Dirty, a wax finish taupe. I don’t necessarily like this shade on my complexion, so I dotted over it. The dots were made with Kiss My Rose Bush (light pink), You’re My Dandy Lion (yellow), Morning Glory, and Ay Poppy! (orange).

I like the way this turned out as the colors complement each other nicely. The dots are simple, but add a nice bit of fun to this look.

    It came out very polished and snazzy looking. Interesting that Morning Glory looks like a completely different shade of magenta on the accent dots than on the rest of your nails, even on that neutral background color! :)

      Thanks love! Morning Glory does appear to be a little darker over the nude.
