Matchy Monday - Oops, wrong pink..
So, I teach part-time at a local University, and I enjoy dressing up on the days that I teach. I also enjoy matching my nails to my outfit, and have been showcasing these on my "Matchy Monday" posts.
Well, how about a not-so-matchy Monday? I thought this polish would work, and it's absolutely beautiful - Reverie in Rubellite by Hare Polish.
That orange glow absolutely slays me. It's so pretty. And, as it sometimes goes, the biggest strength of this polish was also to be its weakness.
BM-211 had this flower pattern that I thought would compliment my dress, so I stamped using my trusty Finger Paints Black Expressionism.
I love how the orange glows through the pattern.
Got to have a full mani to wear to the job, right? It's so pretty... and when I put it next to my dress, it was WAY too orange. Complete clash. I had a sneaking suspicion, but I was too lazy to go get the dress and compare before I did all the stamping and cleanup.
So, I had to take it all off.
By this time, it was late, and I was tired. So Zoya Roxy got to go solo. It doesn't need any embellishment, really, with that lovely subtle glitter.
See? Perfect match with the dress color. That flower stamp would have really looked nice, though.
Have you ever scrapped a mani because it was the wrong shade for your outfit?
