Subtle Pistol Mani
If you follow Nailed It, you know what a pistol mani is. If not, read here to find out. It’s basically when you do accent nails on thumb and forefinger, the two fingers you’d hold up if you were making a gun with your hand. In my case I noticed I had two lovely greens that were very similar in shade but different finishes. So why not do a subtle pistol accent mani?
I used Essie’s School of Hard Rocks on three fingers and Revlon’s VIP Status on the gun fingers. SoHR is a gorgeous creme, with a very nice self-leveling formula. Essie creme formulas tend to be streakier than I like, but this was a good one. VIP Status is a lovely shimmer, with a very nice formula that showed minimal brush strokes.
I got bored with it fast so the next day I decided to add a lightning bold accent, following Nailside’s tutorial. Next time I think I’ll try her double-bolt tutorial. Continuing with the pistol mani theme I topped the shimmer fingers with Zoya Trixie, a silver foil, and the creme fingers with Julep’s Leighton, a smooth silver.
