Amid my funk one particular weekend, I ended up buying some new polishes. Being a rebel, I decided that I would pick some colors I would never normally wear. It’s a tactic I suggest to my clients at work who are looking for a change of pace, so I figured I would apply it to myself.
I am no stranger to black nail polish, but I rarely wear it by itself. More often, it is worn as a complimentary color. For example:
These are the nails I did for day two of Comic Con, inspired by Harley Quinn. It’s how I prefer to wear my black. I did do black and purple for the first day, but it only stayed till I got home and redid them. So, in my Julep Maven box for this month, I got these two colors:
On the left is Aisha and on the right is Alexandra. I can’t even explain how far out of my comfort zone these colors are. I prefer wild, bright colors, and my neutrals tend towards red or pink. These colors? I don’t know. But I kept the box and tried Aisha first. I paired it with these two colors:
Left side is Orly’s Luxe and the right side is OPI’s Wonderous Star (Mariah Carey collection). The glitter is gold and black, by the way, although in certain light it does look silver. The finished look?
It grew on me. The berry color is really pretty, and I’ve gotten quite a few compliments on it. Next look will be using the beige. Not sure how I’ll swing it, but I’m up for the challenge!
Until next time, stay beautiful!
