NOTD: ORLY Fancy Fuchsia

Manicure: ORLY Fancy Fuchsia. Bright, Barbie Pink Crème with Purple Undertones (this would make a great summer pedicure color!).

How To: For this manicure I used one coat of Essie's First Base Coat for adhesion; two coats of ORLY’s Fancy Fuchsia; and one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Notes: The formula of Fancy Fuchsia is thick, so you can get away with using just one coat for full opacity. I used two coats, as I wanted to even the color out, which was slightly streaky for me because I used thin coats. I wore Fancy Fuchsia for 5 days before removal. The color remained just as bright on Day 5 as it was on Day 1 with no chips.

Accessories: IndulgentDesigns Sterling Silver Infinity Knot Ring (worn above-the-knuckle) via Etsy. Urban Outfitters Delicate Serpent Ring.

I would probably use 2 coats as well, even though this color is super pink. I think I'd love it as a pedicure.

Awesome serpent ring as well.

Whooo that's a bright pink. Maybe a bit too neon for me. I tend to prefer the muted pastels. Pink, however, is always a good choice!
