Show Some Love Saturday

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

For this week's Show Some Love Saturday, I decided to channel my inner Marta!  For those who aren't familiar with that name, Marta is the writer of the blog Chit Chat Nails.  I've followed her for over a year now and I love her mish mosh manicures.  She rarely has a plain manicure.  There is always something extra going on and it's always awesome.  Here's what I came up with:


For this manicure, I used the following polishes:
Index and middle fingers: Cult Nails Spontaneous
Ring finger: Sally Hansen No Hard Feelings as a base and Etude House WH020 for the polka dots
Pinky: Etude House WH020 (two coats)
Thumb: Sally Hansen No Hard Feelings with WH020 free handed over part of the nail (see below)

I used Sally Hansen Triple Strong as a base and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat on all nails.

I used a necklace in this picture to imitate Marta's use of jewelry in some of her nail pics.  Hers looks way better though ;0)

I have to admit that though I've been playing around with nail art a lot more lately, this mani took a lot of getting used to.  I'm used to all my nails looking the same or one or two accent nails.  I always appreciate Marta's manis, but this was way out of my comfort zone.  It was a super fun look at though, so I'm really glad I tried it.  If you guys have not visited Marta's blog yet, you MUST.  You will love her gorgeous manicures.

What do you guys think of this manicure?  Do you do mish mosh manicures?

  1. I like this! I always enjoy Marta's manicures, but I rarely do anything like that because I don't go out of my plain base and glitter topper comfort zone! Well done!

  2. You did a great job! I think at some point we all tried to channel Marta. She's just so talented! I do agree however that these kinds of manicures are a little too much for me. I can't go to school wearing something different on each nail. I always wear crazy colors but I mostly stick to maybe one accent nail. I admire her for being so bold to wear these all the time!
