Jinx and Irene by Zoya

Just playing around with these, and thought they'd go well together.

I decided to try out these Nailene Perfect Tips with Irene by Zoya, first.

They came out alright..

But a little thin.

This is with a topcoat, but I decided to take these off because I really didn't like the thin tip.

Next I started off with Jinx by Zoya as a base.

I re-used the Nailene Perfect Tips.  Notice the ugly papercut on my ring finger =(

This is with the tip guides off.  They turned out bumpy for a few reasons - Jinx came off on a few nails of my right hand, which I had to re-do.  On these, the tip guides left a little sticky residue on my nails, as well as using the Sally Hansen TC, which leaves bubbles.

I'm mostly happy with these though, I think the color combination is pretty.

I also think that sponging some gold or painting some gold leaves on a few select fingers would be nice with this.  Very fall.  Or I could try the toothpick marbling effect.  All would look pretty.  :)

Hope you enjoyed these looks at Jinx and Irene by Zoya.

Guideline stickers work best on bare nails, and can cause issues when used over polish. Something that helps though, is waiting a day before trying to use guideline stickers on top of color; that way they won't pull off the polish you have on. In general though, I only use them on bare nails. I'll do a colored tip and apply any sheer over. I love those stickers like no other. :)
