Pink Dream : a new layering experiment

I had a special request from one of my friends today : a Spring "layering" manicure.
Since I haven't posted a lot of pinks, I went through my stash, searching for the perfect combo, and OPI Teenage Dream immediately appealed to me but I didn't want the regular glitter over cream layering so I decided to add a subtle holo on top of that.

I used :
OPI Panda-Monium Pink, 2 thin coats,
OPI Teenage Dream, 1 thin coat,
Catherine Arley 670, 1 coat,
And both base and topcoat.








Overall :
I really like this layering, the holo is subtle but gleaming and the subdued glitter underneath really adds a beautiful sparkle without being too pronounced.
I think I might try the glitter / holo mani more often with the upcoming sunny days.
What do you think, do you like it? Is pink nail polish your thing?

  2. That's so beautiful! I never think about layering. I always figure I can find a polish I like with what I want in it.

  6. I'm really happy you like the combo girls! I often go to "layering" (or frankening but that's another step to make) when I can't find the exact nail polish I'm looking for, so many possibilities...

  8. Exactly the kind of inspiration I was looking for!!! This is indeed the perfect Spring layering, so sweet, so tender but yet with the glitter and holo to give it a little zest! I love it how you have done this.

    Thank you so much for sharing, you really know how to inspire the prettiest manicures.

  11. This looks so pretty and girly! Pink is not my favourite color, but I do think it looks good on me and it reminds me of candy, so I occasionally wear pinks.

  12. That looks so beautiful! I'm intrigued by these Catherine Arley polishes. They're gorgeous, but I'm guessing they're not 3 free?

  13. I haven't been wearing a lot of pinks lately, but they're simple and chic in pale tones and very energetic in more bold shades. This layering is just perfect, as Marionne wrote the glitter and hole give it the right amount of zest! ;)

  15. @soknitpicky Actually the Catherine Arley nail polishes are 3free, so that's awesome :D
    They just don't call them that way but "hypoallergenic". I just looked at the ingredients.
