The wonderful world of twitter brought to my attention another reason why Zooey Deschanel is so freaking adorable. She tweeted her new spring mani of a nude nail with turquoise tips, the perfect spring french manicure! Since I’m already obsessing with pastels this spring I knew I HAD to copy this. I tweaked it a bit, I didn’t have a nude I wanted to wear, but I’ve been DYING for the new peach cream in Essie’s spring 2012 release. This gave me a reason to go get it! (ps ulta i hate you for taking my money when i run in for one bottle of polish and come out with way more than intended)
Sidenote: I LOVE Essie’s base coat and top coat. I would check your local Walmarts because I found these on clearance, yes clearance! Also found on clearance the Essie Disappearing Trick cuticle treatment which is also amazing!
As shown on my ring finger I experienced a little drag. I only used 2 coats and I’m sure if I used 3 thin coats it would of evened out. Of course anytime I do freehand french tips they never turn out awesome, but these will do. I’m loving the color combo, feels very art deco. Makes me feel like I need a trip to Miami. I’m definitely digging A Crewed Interest from Essie’s Spring 2012 release. I’m surprised its not included in their mini cube offering. I’ll be wearing this bright peach cream all spring long fo sho! And summer for that matter, it will look amazing with a tan!
Zooey Deschanel is holding her own as a nail trendsetter. I still need to try those mini tuxedo nails she did for the Golden Globes. I’ll continue to stalk her nails for inspiration. You know what also looks amazeballs with this copy cat spring french mani, my mark. Color Cluster Ring. Perfect match! It’s my favorite ring from mark. and can I say how totally excited I am that its on last chance for a limited time for ONLY 7.99!
