Simple Layered Mani

Because sometimes one polish just won't do, you know? I wasn't deciding on a single polish to use for my nails today so I grabbed OPI Where's My Czechbook and Essie Turqs and Caicos and decided to do a simple layered manicure with both. There was something about the bright blue of the OPI polish that I thought would mix well with the green tiny of the Essie polish. I think I was right but see for yourself?
See? The Essie polish just barely covers the OPI but does change the color a bit. Do you layer polishes? Have you ever layered polishes that you ended up hating?

Ah, in other news, I have officially begun my "Shred Then Wed" weight-loss-tone-up plan and today was a decent day. There's supposed to be some rain coming for us tonight though so I have to go out for my run now or I risk missing out! Hope everyone is doing well! Anyone want to weight loss adventure with me??

  1. I <3 that blue! :)

    I virtually never layer polishes. I will use the occasional glitter top coat, but that's about as far as I go. Layering doesn't really fit with my blog format so I'm either wearing a polish as it is, or I'm doing nail art.

    1. You should try it out. Sometimes layering will give you a surprising shade!

  2. I don't layer polishes that often. I have done it a few times but usually I get annoyed with seeing a small line near my cuticles that isn't 100% covered with both polishes. Maybe I need better polishing skills to appreciate layering more ;)

    1. Ah! I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. And yes, I have been annoyed by that not-fully-covered part!

    1. Layering is hit or miss so sometimes it looks nice and other times it's a train wreck...
