Cotton Candy Nails!

Hey guys~

So it's summer, but I was never one of those girls who painted their nails based on the season.  I love spring nail polish but I'll be just as inclined to rock it in the summer as I would be in the spring!

I was trying to decide how to paint my nails recently.  And I was looking at my little stash of polishes and I spotted Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj OPI collection, this is one of my all time favorites.  And then I saw Something Borrowed by Essie and I thought, oh my god baby pink and baby blue, perfect.  I actually thought the manicure might turn out a little too Baby Shower looking, but it didn't at all.  A friend of mine said it looked like cotton candy!

I did what I'm going to call a reverse tip~  It turned out really nice I think!  I don't usually do a lot of tip designs because let's be honest your dominant hand always ends up looking worse than your non dominant hand, at least in my case.  But this one didn't turn out too bad.  It needs a little bit of clean up but I'm lazy about that -.-

Overall, I found this manicure very refreshing.  I've actually used a lot of neons lately, lots of neon greens and pinks, and it was nice to have something a little cooler in tone and I absolutely love these colors!  Pink Friday is seriously one of my all time faves and paired with Something Borrowed it really hit the spot.
