In my challenge to post original Summer polish combo’s, I decided to create a pairing using one of my favorite shades, butter London’s Snog (which also happens to be the number one ‘search’ for people who stumble upon the blog), and match it with a total snooze of a shade, Zoya’s Cho – which if you recall, totally left me cold. I learned last year from some of my favorite fellow bloggers, that sometimes a shade which falls flat on the hand can work as a pedicure shade just fine, so I gave Cho one more chance to WOW me and used it as the pedi shade in this instance. Before I give you my judgement, let me give you time to view the results:
I actually liked this combo a lot!! I find it can be tricky when wearing a lot of bright shades, not to overdo it, so I’ve been pairing them with more neutral colors – and this works quite well, I think. The contrast of Snog’s brightness makes Cho look appropriately subdued but not so boring. Also, Cho worn on the toes looks WAY nicer than on my hands – it makes them look so clean and sophisticated. I particularly liked how it looked with these sandals:
I’m really happy that Cho ended up being less lame then originally thought – I may never wear it on my hands again, but as a pretty pedi shade, it means that it’ll stay in my collection rather than getting the boot (I was sorely tempted before!). Snog is just all-around fabulous, and isn’t going anywhere. I actually think this is one of the few products in my beauty life that I would repurchase once it ran out (which is a strong possibility!). It’s just so juicy and vibrant and shiny and awesome! I highly recommend picking up a bottle.
What mani/pedi combo do you favour? What is your ultimate Summer polish shade?
