There's a bit of a story to this mani, so bear with me... Last weekend I went to the mall in search of these J Crew socks. I obviously have a thing for funny socks, because I had seen them on a previous trip and resisted buying them, and really regretted it. Luckily for me, I went back this time and the shark socks were on sale, and I found another pair that I like even more with whales on them!
On the same trip to the mall, I innocently walked into Sephora just looking to grab some more concealer, when I spotted one lonely bottle of the limited edition Marc Jacobs New Wave. However, there were fifty billion people in line so I resigned to just getting concealer at the drugstore. I was doing so well, but unfortunately Sephora is right by the exit of the mall... So my polish-hoarding self got the better of me and on my way out I went back in to just check if it was still there... And it was... And there was no line-up... So it came home with me.
Of course I had to put on the Marc Jacobs polish as soon as I got home; two flawless coats for opacity. What an absolutely gorgeous navy creme! I wanted to add a little something to the base, and I couldn't resist replicating the adorable whales from my socks! The little guy is freehanded with LaCC 1950 and a bit of white acrylic paint. All nails are topped with Seche Vite, as usual.
Above is a swatch of Marc Jacobs New Wave alone, and below are the whale socks. :)
All in all, I was completely in love with this mani. The navy is so beautiful, and the whale was just so irresistibly adorable! What do you think? :)
