It’s no secret that Essie Resort Fling is one of my fave shades for spring. The peachy, coral creme jelly (sorry the word “crelly” makes my skin crawl), is near perfect. The only thing that could make it better is that subdued crystal sparkle in shades like Sunday Funday and Naughty Nautical.
So, for this #ManiMonday, I used Essie Pure Pearlfection to create that signature look and now Resort Fling looks even more amazing!!
DIY Subtle Sparkle
Thanks to the semi-sheer pigmentation of the jelly-based Essie Resort Fling, layering Pure Pearlfection UNDER allows the clear crystals to peek through without overpowering the glorious squishy, glossy finish.
Get The Look: Start with two thin, THIN coats of Resort Fling. Add a generous coat of Pure Pearlfection, another thin coat of Resort Fling and repeat. As the top layer dries, the crystals shine through and take this color over the top. I mean…
Bottom Line: I can’t wait to play with Pure Pearlfection and some more creme jelly polishes to recreate this look. It may become my favorite layering effect. As much as the multi-colored glitter bombs draw the eye, you can’t deny the impact a simple crystal fleck can have.
What are you wearing for Mani Monday? Have you tried layering with Pure Pearlfection? Will you give my layering combination a try?
