I am all about chaos on my nails. How many times have you seen one of my manicures and thought…Monica definitely didn’t need to add that or this would look better with out this…Well, I certainly have. However, the kitchen sink idea just made me nervous! There is a method to my madness, whether I am using the same color scheme or technique.
Kitchen Sink prompts as many colors, techniques, embellishments, and designs as I can possibly fit on my little nails. CONFUSION!!!
Unfortunately, my wrists decided to leave me hanging again so I opted for some fun, simple RA-friendly
saran-wrapped (read: bubble-wrap) and color foiled nails.
At first, I did not really like my final result but it grew on me. It is definitely not soemthing I would normally choose but it kind of sort of works, right? Maybe if I got rid of my pinky?
What do you think? Is this a miss?
I used (from index to pinky) China Glaze In the Limelight, American Apparel Parakeet, Girly Bits Supersonic, and American Apparel Neon Yellow as my bases.
I sponged Nfu-Oh Opals Nfu-51 on my index and pinky finger before applying color foils (from Born Pretty Store).
For the middle finger, I bubble-wrapped with Pahlish La Royale and American Apparel Neon Violet.
On the ring fingre, I bubbled wrapped with Color Club Warhol and applied a sheer coat of Zoya Maria Luisa.
When the index and pinky nails dried I sponged a little Neon Yellow to blend out the colors.

I don’t know, I like the more is more approach! 🙂
Hehehe so do I Sandra!!! 😀
I do think it works! The middle being my favourite, it’s such a cool colour combo but the pinky is definitely my least favourite though, I just find it a bit icky. Your index is pretty cool too!
OMG, Right?!?! I kept looking at my pinky and something looked off…I didn’t know if it was the pink foil, or the yellow sponging or just in…heheh…ah well, I can’t win them all! 🙂

I think the whole look is very fun and funky!
Hehehe thanks, that’s what I was going for! I kind of wish I had been more careful with the pink foil, though
