Hi loves! Wow, talk about a loooong pause. Last time I updated this blog was June 27th, and the post coming up today might be the actual last one forever? I've been enjoying my time away from the blog so much, actually I've been stepping away from polish completely it seems. I still enjoy to paint my nails every now and then but most of the time they are naked O.o
Today's post is assembled with a bit of a heavy heart, as it as the final chapter of the monthly Paint All The Nails looks. I've been so blessed to have met this awesome group of friends, beautiful women from all over the world that are kind, supporting and loving. To honor each other we are doing a Best of Paint All The Nails link-up: we all chosen a mani created specifically for the monthly link-up and recreated it to share with you today.
My nails are an hommage to Emily from Very Emily. I can't even describe the many times she was there for me in a mani crisis and I love chatting with her about our every day lives. Her style lines up nicely with mine (though most of her freehand work is way beyond my capabilities) and to honor her I chose to recreate the Paint All The Nails Presents Animal Print look she did.
While I didn't have the same polishes to copy her original look, I think using OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around is a great substitute - after all, that's another favorite of ours ;-). The glitter is China Glaze Angel Wings, and the leopard print was freehanded using a detail brush and some black stamping polish.
Let me know what you think of my interpretation of her mani and make sure to check out the other looks linked down below! Thanks again lovely ladies for making the Paint All The Nails group so awesome, safe, and memorable ♥.
