This was a fun manicure I did recently when I finally found Wet 'n' Wild's Bijou Blue. The two CVS stores near me have only a limited variety of nail polishes in stock (which sucks), but I picked it up when I went to a new Wal*Mart in the area. Bijou Blue is a shimmery ocean blue shade that is gorgeous out in the sunlight. To jazz it up a little bit, I tried a paint splatter technique by blowing nail polish out of a straw and onto the nail; it was a messy process! The colors I used for the paint splatter are China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy and Orly's Dazzle.
This photo was taken without flash and it represents the color more accurately, I believe. However, Flip Flop Fantasy is actually much brighter than it appears here; neons just don't photograph correctly. :(
I used the flash here to show the shimmer in Bijou Blue, isn't it beautiful? The formula on this was okay, it was a little sheer and thin; I ended up using three coats for what you see in the photos.
Thanks for visiting!
