Number One Nemesis + Licorice

Many moons ago, I picked up the Amazing Spiderman mini-pack at Ulta. Mostly for "Just Spotted the Lizard."  I didn't really give any of the other polishes a second glance before stashing them away. But last week, feeling uninspired, I decided to go through my minis and see what was to be had. I came across "Number One Nemesis"...and looking at the bottle against the black nail polish I was already wearing, it reminded me of art-deco jewelry. Specifically, this onyx ring my mom wore when I was wee. So of course, I had to use it. But since I was still feeling kinda "meh" about the whole nail art thing, I just did a simple diagonal tape job with it. I think, if I were to do it again, I'd definitely get a little more detailed.

Colors Used:
Essie in Licorice
OPI in Number One Nemesis

in full sunlight. I really love this combo.
 I'd just like to say that it took me three goddamned days to take a decent picture of this manicure. THREE DAYS. That is ridiculous. I'm not saying I don't love the weather here, because I do...but C'MON! Three days without sunshine? Really, Mother Nature?

What "summer" looks like on the central California coast. The ocean is in this picture, somewhere beyond all the fog.

    1. Thanks! I was quite fond of it. And surprisingly, it wore really well. I forgot to put a topcoat on, and there were no chips and minimal wear after a week. Color me impressed.

  2. haha! That description of the weather picture! Naaais! I just feel the same right now. Been sporting a cool mani all week and have only been able to take pictures of it on Friday. Wait a second. Friday! Everything had chipped, of course.

    The mani is simple but very nice, in fact I wouldn't change anything!

    1. aww thanks! Some weeks, we dont see the sun at all, and I am forced to brighten the pictures on the computer. :/ Still better than having to run the a/c I guess...
