This week’s Makeup Wars Challenge is our Favorite Summer Mani and you’d think that it would be an easy choice, but honestly, I’ve debated over this one for days! Ultimately I found inspiration from The Little Mermaid. Seriously. Read on for more…
Since blue is such a hot shade this summer, I knew I wanted to use that, but which shade? I don’t have many blues in my collection, as it’s a hard color for me to wear. As I scoured through Instagram photos (Are you following me? You should!), I came across NARS Koliary…part of last summer’s limited-edition Thakoon for NARS collection (check Zoya “Rocky” from the Stunning Collection or CHANEL Azure for similar shades).
Koliary is a gorgeous turquoise cream; when I saw it, I knew that was exactly what I was looking for. I debated about trying to sponge some other colors on, then I thought about possibly a jelly overcoat. Then, I spotted Zoya Maisie from the Fleck Effects collection and within minutes I was “under the sea”.
What I love about this combination is that it really does give you an aquatic feel, with the green flecks in Maisie creating a beautiful iridescence, not unlike when you’re in the Caribbean and see the colors underwater. And this was so easy! Make sure to check out all the Summer Mani’s that the other Makeup Wars Challengers have created!
