Some of the CND Effects polishes have been sitting in my stash unused for far too long. I remember I got them because a long time ago I saw a Mood Ring manicure on All Lacquered Up. Seems like I never recreated this manicure until now. Shame on me, because CND's Effects are such lovely polishes. So here finally is my take on a mood ring manicure.
As a base color I used CND Dark Amethyst from the The Look Fall/Winter 2011 collection. I used to own Midnight Sapphire from the same collection, but smashed it on the kitchen floor shortly after I got it, boo. For the mood ring effect I painted overlapping stripes using Ice Blue Shimmer, Emerald Shimmer and Copper Shimmer. For more detailed instructions head over to All Lacquerd Up's post. I simply skipped Copper Shimmer all over the nail, as I liked the effect better without.
I love the idea and how this came out! The three overlapping polishes will make it look like you have five colors on your nails.
How do you like this simple yet effective manicure?
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a great weekend,
