There are so many things I love about this manicure, so let’s just start with a picture. I’m sure you can figure out why I’m loving this! First of all, let’s start with the polish. Raspberry Gummy Bear is a holo polish that lands somewhere between hot pink and red. Raspberry is a pretty good descriptor. The formula is amazing, as always. This is 2 coats with topcoat. Except, I skipped topcoat on my ring, pinky and thumb, so I could spice it up. I grabbed Secret Keeper from ESP’s Truly Outrageous collection. Check my swatches here. I did one coat of the glitter, then a coat of topcoat.
For my thumb and pinky, I decided to use some of the vinyls that came with the Truly Outrageous collection. They are so, so easy to use. I used a pair of tweezers to carefully peel them off the paper (so not to rip the delicate palm tree leaves), then placed them on my nails where I wanted them. When I was happy with the placement, I pressed firmly to make sure they were sealed and finished with a generous layer of topcoat. These bad boys lasted 5 day without issue (then I got bored and decided to change my mani). Last time I wore them, I didn’t realize I need to use a topcoat and they last 2 days. So, the lesson is to read the instructions. Ooops!
The good news is that the vinyls are posted up on Eat. Sleep. Polish.’s website now! She’s adding a few more designs this weekend, so you may want to check them out too! I grabbed the dolphins, owls and bows! I can’t wait to see what comes up on the weekend! 🙂
