Lovely Lattice

Hi everyone! I have some more summer-appropriate nail art for you. It's a simple mix-and-match look using two American Apparel polishes that I hauled the other day. I thought they went so well together that I knew I had to use them right away. American Apparel The Valley, that's the blue colour, applied flawlessly in two coats. American Apparel Sunset Blvd. was a bit more finicky. It didn't seem to want to even out so it took three coats. It could just be the fault of the polisher though (ie. me) and it's otherwise no problem at all. I highly recommend both for go-to summer shades!

I used a similar colour scheme back in this tribal-esque manicure: "Get Me To The Beach!" I guess this means that this combo is still going strong! (I also rambled less back then haha). One more note, despite being a mix-and-match manicure, I tried a double accent nail combination. I'm usually always a strict thumb/ring finger kind of gal but I tried putting the pop of bright orange on the index/little finger instead. I quite like it! (:


On the index and little fingers I used American Apparel Sunset Blvd. On the rest of the nails I used American Apparel The Valley. For the white details I used a striping polish, a dotting tool for the orange dots, and added an light blue rhinestone on my index finger.

Have a beautiful weekend!
