I hope you are all having a fab weekend!
Essie Canada is having a Facebook/Instagram contest again, and I entered these nails to try and win their upcoming Winter collection (which I can't find any info on yet!). Contest closes October 4th so if you either want to enter or vote (please & thank you!), you still have plenty of time - there are 30 winners so odds are pretty good if you do decide to enter!
For this mani I used Essie's 2011 Fall collection polishes and a tutorial written by Kelsie at Kelsie's Nail Files (check out her blog, she's great). I used Case Study (beige), Carry On (burgundy) and Very Structure (rust), then using a white striping polish I added the lines. This was probably the trickiest part - trying to get the lines straight and uniform in size!
I had a heck of a time doing this mani. Halifax in incredibly humid right now and things just weren't drying fast enough :P But in the end I think it turned out quite well, I really love this pattern!
