I also tried something that's quite common for manicures, but which is also a first for me: a duotone nail--half hot pink, half red. I really like the way it looks under the selfie:
I'm going to have to do the duotone thing again; I really like it!
This manicure was inspired the OPI polish, Minnie Style. It's a glitter topcoat of equally sized red, white, and pink glitter. Although I have red, white, and pink glitter, I decided to do white glitter only. Of course, when brushing glitter "dots" on your nail, you get random, uneven placement, which I don't find unappealing. It's just that the dots on Minnie's dress are polka dots--evenly spaced--and the dots in my selfie can't make polka dots.
Still, I love this look so much!
