♥ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Mint Sorbet
♥ Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in Pink-a-Dot (ring finger only)
♥ OPI top coat and base coat, plus Nicole by OPI drying drops; no base or top coat (or drying drops!) needed for nail polish strip accent nail
I've been a HUGE fan of mint + pink this spring, so I was excited to see the results of this combination. The Sally Hansen polish strips (OPI makes them now, too, and I'm sure more brands will follow suit) are pretty easy to apply, but kind of difficult to take off (I used regular nail polish remover but it took about twice as long to remove the strip as it did regular polish).
I'm not sure I'd like the polka dots on all five fingers -- seems a little much for me. I like the patterned strips much better as an accent.
More accent nail ideas, all from my "Nail Polish Obsession" board on Pinterest (click the image to be taken to the source pin). Hint: go to Lauren Conrad's The Beauty Department. TONS of awesome nail ideas there, and the source of the gingham, dot, and stripe accent nail tutorials below.
Happy accenting, and be sure to check out the rest of Mani Monday by clicking the button below!
