Semi-inspired by this pin, I wanted to dabble in this "two different accent nails" concept, but wasn't convinced that my chevron-painting ability would be up to snuff quite yet. Cue the dotting tool.
Bailamos is a shimmery, dark turquoise by Orly. It's got a lovely formula - opaque after two medium coats. It's one of my favorite fall polishes because of how popular jewel tones have become for fall in the last few years.
For this mani, I also used my trusty Snow Me White (Sinful Colors) and my favorite silvery sparkle - Beware by Pure Ice. I've used these two colors is so many other manis - you've probably already realized how fond of them I am!
I used two coats of Bailamos on all nails except my ring finger. Three or four coats of Beware were used on my ring finger - it's a fabulous silver glitter but the glittery pieces are super small, so they need several coats to become opaque.
Lastly I added the white polka dots to my middle finger using my Quo dotting tool.
I love the look of this mix 'n match mani - and was even tempted to do the same thing on my other hand but with a different Orly polish. Though I decided against that this time, I'll probably be trying out this look with other color combinations in the future.
What do you think of the dual accent nails? Yay or nay?
