Accent: Wet n Wild Gyp-Sea Green & Sally Hansen Mind Your Manors

Finally! Gyp-Sea Green is miiiiiiiiiiiine! I've been searching and searcing since Amanda from Pretty Girl Science posted about this collection... and then Yadi from Nightswatcher posted about it... and yesterday, G from Nouveau Cheap posted almost the entire Summer Festival collection! I've gotta admit, I was wondering if I would EVER find it!!! Low and behold, I stopped by KMart on my way home... and found 2 bottles of Gyp-Sea Green just waiting for me to take them home, and also stumbled on a new Sally Hansen Display! The moment I saw Mind Your Manors, I knew this accenticure had to happen.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Wet n Wild Gyp-Sea Green
1 Coat Sally Hansen Mind Your Manors (accent)
1 Coat Wet n Wild Gyp-Sea Green
1 Coat Sally Hansen Invisible
1 Coat Seche Vite

These two polishes were made to go together! Gyp-Sea Green is a gorgeous dusty and squishy teal. Immediately it had me thinking sea water, sand, and tropical beaches. Then I found Mind Your Manors from Sally Hansen. It's a shredded glitter topper with shards of copper, green, and blue glitter in a clear base. It totally reminded me of what you might find gleaming inside a treasure chest.

When I started applying Gyp-Sea Green, I wasn't sure how many coats it would take to get the look I was going for, and 5 ended up being just right. On my accent fingers, I painted a coat of Mind Your Manors on half of my nail, then used the dab and place method to fill in any holes. When I was satisfied with the amount of glitter, I added a 5th coat of Gyp-Sea Green to all of my nails. I added a coat of clear, followed by a generous coat of Seche Vite. The glitter shards in Mind Your Manors are a little sharp. I can still feel bumps on my accents, even if they're not visible. That's pretty typical for this type of glitter, though!

All in all, I really love how this manicure turned out. When I look at my accent nail, it actually reminds me sunlight shimmering on coral underwater. Soooooo pretty!

Have you spotted Gyp-Sea Green or Mind Your Manors?
