Peach and Copper Nails

I attempted some pretty advanced nail art tonight, and it went bad. Very bad. So I started over with a simple mani/pedi that I have been wanting to do.

Sephora by OPI Traffic-Stopper Copper over Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care Sorbet

I am obsessed with the peach color of the Sally Hansen Sorbet. And I always love their pro-wide applicator brush, so it was nice to see that. However, the formula stunk. It was thick but runny, DEFINITELY needed three (gloopy) coats, and still, hours later, doesn’t feel set. It’s a hard polish to work with. Which sucks, since I love the color!

I decided to accent the plain peach with the amazing Traffic-Stopper Copper glitter. It has coppery chunks and looked great over the peach, since they are in the similar warm/pinkish family- much like doing silver glitter over grey polish.

It looks great up close, like the picture above, but from a distance it has almost a lace like quality to it. Or maybe I’m just crazy.

I did my toes too, exactly the same. I love how this manicure/pedicure is glittery but still appropriate for everyday. I’m usually scared of all-over glitter, so I think this monochromatic take really works for me.
