Pink Wednesday

I actually did a Pink Wednesday mani . . . last week :p I ran out of time to post it though so I'm using it for this week instead. I was rather surprised to find that I don't have many pink polishes, until I remembered that most of my polishes I purchased over ten years ago when I still hated pink. So, since I hadn't tried my Barielle polishes yet I grabbed my bottle of Wrapped in Ribbon and went to it.

I must say, I love the formula of this. Application was easy and the polish was well-pigmented with great coverage.

Swatched, two coats.

Then I took a page from my previous mani with Zoya Casey and, using my french tip guides again, I used Wet 'n' Wild Sparked by my cuticles with a single stripe down each ring finger nail an a double stripe on both thumbs.

Natural light.

Artificial light.

I am really enjoying these sparkle-accent manis. I love having the pop without feeling like my nails are overwhelmed.

Ooh I really like this! I think the inverted French is so cool! I like doing ruffian manicures, they're my favorite :) AND Wet n Wild Sparked is definitely one to have!

P.S. I tagged you for a Sunshine Award!!
