Coconut Ruffian

17 Aug

Mmmm… coconut.  I love coconut anything.  Yummy!  I was in my bathroom today and my Coconut Lime Verbena lotion from Bath and Body Works caught my eye.  I instantly thought of doing a coconut ruffian.

As I sat down to do this mani, I though, “This is going to be quick and easy.”  NOT!  I knew it would take a couple coats to get my white opaque over a brown, but didn’t anticipate that my brown would be so splotchy and require three coats.  My brown is Essie Chocolate Cakes and is pretty much the exact color of a Devil’s Food cake.  Another yum.  In general I find Essie polishes to be a little thin for my liking.  I don’t like needing multiple coats and I don’t like having my cuticles flooded.  I encountered both of these with this polish.  Beautiful, warm, rich brown, but not my favorite formula.  My white is Julep Brigitte, a good bright white.

I topped this one off with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.  What do you think of my coconuts? 😉

    I am coconut fan too. If you get a chance, look up Luna and Larry’s coconut ice cream and see if you can find some near you – that stuff is the BOMB. Oh and I like the mani too!

      Sounds yummy! Looks like there are several retailers near me that carry it. Thanks for the tip!
