I started with a base of Essence Date in the Moonlight and sponged a gradient of Butter London Scouse onto the tips. I then taped off the middle and painted Date in the Moonlight over the sides. I used black on my ring finger to see what it would look like, and I think it looks better. I'll probably redo this mani sometime with a thinner middle stripe, because I really love the way Scouse looks as a gradient.
I was originally planning to use OPI DS Magic, which is a dupe for Scouse (I compared them in this post). But this tragedy happened:
|R.I.P. DS Magic|
Luckily, as it's a dupe, I don't need to rush out and replace it. But it's still saddening when you lose a beloved member of your polish army! Have you ever dropped or smashed a nail polish, and which one was it?
