Not Your Typical Combination...But I Like It!

You don't see these colours together too often (I do recall FingersPolishMania posting this combination on IG this week though!) but I really liked how this turned out!  Occasionally at Halloween, I suppose.   But this is what came of two polish orders arriving in the same week and the need to try them both out at once! Here's what I came up with! 

Started with a base of two coats each of Girly Bits Astoria with an accent of Different Dimension Olive Me Loves Olive You.  Silly me, I had initially passed on GB Astoria when it was first released as well as the December monthly release of Grandma Got Run Over By A John Deere...but an extension to buy it and the regret of seeing all the swatches of Astoria made be hit buy now! 

After I had top coated, I was cleaning up my nail station to prep for stamping and went to pick up a bottle of polish that I had tested to see if it would stamp over GB Astoria but I guess I forgot to close it.  So then I hit it, knocked it over and then did this when I was trying to save it from spilling.

So after fixing up a couple of the nails by redoing them, I added stamping using FunkyFingers Gesso using an image from Creative Shop 29.

Added a couple accent studs for interest.

I was on the fence to leave it like it was as I did like how it looked, but ultimately decided to add a few dots for interest using the olive polish

Topped it off with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

This mani should have been quick and easy but took a little bit longer because of the oops, but I do like how it turned out!  I like how they are a little different than typical nails and that's not a bad thing to me every now and again!

Hope you're having a good weekend; thanks for looking!


  1. I think these turned out fun! Astoria is gorgeous!

  2. That's such a unique green, I love it!
    Also - you could have tried to start a new trend with those smeared nails :-P
