Hopping&Sponging

For some unknown reason this manicure was lingering in the drafts for years... you can see it by the length of my nails - I do not wear them so long any more :D Anyways, it's never too late to show a classical sponging mani in even more classic colours: mauve+gold.

Base colour is 2 coats of Essie Island Hopping - a nice mauve that I get bored of very easily. After applying it I sponged Andreia #93, gold glitter in a transparent base, on top. Ready.

Finally I think I've chosen the right time to show this manicure - autumn/spring. Probably this is why it was always a draft - there was no right moment for it in summer or spring :)

Do you like sponged tips? I think it's one of the coolest and easiest designs for all times, no? :)

    1. Это архистарые свотчи, я с февраля держу свои ногти довольно короткими, это все из-за кусачек для типсов))) Надо все эти таупные Эсси снова достать и показать, у меня их явно штуки 3 еще))
