In an effort to make my hands somewhat match, I wanted to put Essie Chocolate Cakes on my right hand as well as my left. Chocolate Cakes is such a warm brown, it’s almost red. It’s like a Devil’s Food cake with maybe a pinch of Red Velvet mixed in. Gorgeous.
I picked up Wet n Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint (almost a dead dupe for China Glaze For Audrey) the other day and thought it would look fantastic over Chocolate Cakes.
For an accent, I thought, you can’t really go wrong with a beautiful, shimmery gold polish. So I added Sinful Colors This Is It. I like to think of this polish as my Michael Jackson polish. He loved extravagant things (gold) and the tour he was getting ready to do when he died was called “This Is It.” I have no idea if the creators behind this Sinful Colors polish had MJ in mind when they made this beauty, but this is the story I’m going to go with.
I’ve been trying not to use pure acetone when I do clean up after a messy mani like this one. It’s just so drying! As a result, this mani took forever to clean up! I was using an acetone based remover, but it may as well have been non-acetone. At least I didn’t use a dark color for the splatters. That would’ve made it a lot worse.
I love these colors together and love the randomness of a splatter design.
