Julep Melissa (1 coat) over SinfulColors Snow Me White (2 coats)
Hey, guys, I'm finally back from Cambodia! I got in late last night so it's nice to be back to blogging and painting my nails. I do, however, have a post about nail salons in Cambodia to do this week so stay tuned.
I learned how to do this bead manicure from the Polishaholic. I basically followed her directions exactly (with the beads also found at Michaels), so instead of reiterating the same thing here, go check out her awesome blog. I used SinfulColors Snow Me White which is a white-out white creme under Julep Melissa. Melissa is definitely not a polish to be used on its own, but to be layered to change the look of the polish it goes over (pretty much like the CND Effects polishes). It has a duochrome effect, looking teal or green depending on the angle you look at it. The beads are definitely fun, but they will only last you a day before you start to pick at the beads and they come off (but it's so fun to do!). Anyway, I'm glad to be back and I look forward to a fresh start with some new polishes!
