Happy Friday everyone! I’m in great spirits today – my bf and I are headed away for the weekend to a chalet! This was one of my Christmas gifts from him so it’s something I’ve been looking forward too all Winter :) In preparation for the event, I did a mani/pedi combo – I usually don’t bother to paint my toenails at all during boot season, but for this I’m making an exception. I really wanted to use Essie’s Limited Addiction, which is a rich slightly blue-leaning red, but I also wanted to give him the choice, so I showed him four shades and had him pick two. Smart ducky that he is, he picked Limited Addiction and Illamasqua’s Baptiste – a winning combo if I say so myself!
I’ve shown Limited Addiction before, also in a mani/pedi combo as my toenail color, but here it is on my fingers:
As for the combo, here’s a couple sunlight and artificial light shots, respectively (for the mani, three coats; pedi, two):It’s hard to capture the glorious shimmer in Baptiste without direct sunlight – and it’s darn near impossible to take pedi shots with one foot stuck high in the air! LOL! Just check out my original shots of Baptiste to see it in it’s full loveliness :)
I think this combo works well for Winter – both colors are rich and decadent, but complement each other well. It makes me excited for this year’s installment of my Summer mani/pedi combos – quite far away yet, but something to look forward to!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and is enjoying some unseasonably warm weather like we are in Halifax (though we’ll be driving into some snow for our trip…lol)!!
