Messy Mani with Lina's Nail Art Supplies and Essence

Hello lovelies!

Recently there was a sale of Essence nail polishes, so I was permitted to buy a few! They're cheap when they're not on sale, let alone when it's a BOGO-situation! I felt the shades I chose would look gorgeous together, so I fashioned this:

So I  grabbed one of my Lina's Nail Art Supplies "Make Your Mark" plates, #2, and went a little nuts. I started with a base of HEMA white. I then semi-randomly stamped, using various images from the plate, with Essence "The One and Only" (red), "Lagoona Beach" (teal),  "My Love Diary" (pink), "Glitter Choc" (brown) and "Mud about You" (grey). I finished it by using BPS black to stamp the final image. I wanted to use Essence "Black is back", but that one is not opaque enough, unfortunately. I sealed it all in with SV. 

Before being able to take pictures, I was part of a bachelorette's party which included a vicious game of laser tag in the woods. Therefore the pictures show some tip wear. It was all worth it though, I was the undisputed winner (which, being a newbie at this and half blind, was a bit of a surprise!).

Most of these polishes will be retired in the fall, so if you see something you like, I recommend running to your drugstore!

What do you think? Would you wear this mess of a mani, or is this not your cup of tea?


  1. This doesn't loo anything close to messy, I think it's beautiful and unique.

  2. This is such a cool look!! I love how you layered everything!
