NOTD: Accent Manicure

Hey chicas!

I've been bummed that I haven't been able to blog, but I was dealing with a really bad cold that I just couldn't seem to shake. But, I'm now feeling better with the exception of a partial stuffy nose, and today is my birthday! Yay! Anyway, I wanted this post to be a follow up to the Sally Hansen Extreme Wear nail polish.

I'm sure most have seen or heard of this nail trend, which I came across a few months ago, called an accent or contrast manicure. I'm not one to follow trends just because it's "in", but I love this trend! I used the Sally Hansen nail polish, which I talked about in my last post. 

    This almost reminds me of when I was younger, and the cool thing was to paint every nail, or every other nail a different color. However, this a way watered down version, it's a little more polished (no pun intended) yet still fun. It's the perfect touch to a manicure when you can't decide between two colors that you want to use. Or, use complimentary colors, which is what I thought of when I heard the term accent manicure. You can also just stay in the same color family and use different hues. The possibilities are endless! Since summer is around the corner, I'm also going to start doing this to my pedicures to match my nails!

What do you think of the accent manicure? What colors do you pair together?


  1. Love the blue colour!

  2. I nominated you for an award!

    I also love that blue paired with the gold, very bold!
