You may or may not have seen this mani floating around the internet a lot lately - its a mani first introduced by CND at the Diego Binetti show during NYFW. Ivana did a lovely version of it HERE
So here's my version of it using 2 coats of Sally Hansen Shell We Dance as the base then lightly sponging on Orly Oh Cabana Boy around the cuticles. I suggest you protect the skin around your nails with tape ala water marbling or be prepared for extensive cleanup. You WILL have pink fingers! ;-)
To finish off I freehanded a french tip with Essie Good as Gold. Lemmetellya - this polish wears like IRON! I wore this mani for 5 days and still had no tip wear on the Essie metallic. Good stuff!
Have a lovely week!

I love giraffes. They have a special meaning to Amanda and I, and I have really been wanting to do another giraffe manicure. I did a freehand giraffe here. But it seems everyone and their brother have been doing a giraffe stamp with the new BM set and I didn't want to regurgitate the same design again.
So, I decided to change it up a little bit and do a girly giraffe with Orly Passion Fruit and yellow Konad stamping polish. It's subtle but I really like it!
Thank God it's Friday!
