Gone are those days, and now pink and red are one of my favourite colour combinations – hence my need to pair these two gorgeous YSL nail polishes (rouge pop art and rose renaissance) together.two polishes
I love the look of the YSL nail polish bottles, so elegant. The square cap just pops off (similar to Butter London and LVX nail polishes) and you’re left with a round, easy to hold, twist off cap.red and pink nails, YSL beauty, YSL nail polsih, rose renaissance, rouge pop art, half moon mani, half moon nail art, pink and red nails
To showcase these two beautiful polishes, I chose to do a half moon manicure using the pink as my base and the red on top.red and pink nails, YSL beauty, YSL nail polsih, rose renaissance, rouge pop art, half moon mani, half moon nail art, pink and red nails
It’s funny, I was wearing this manicure to work and my client (of course it’s a guy) asked why I didn’t paint my cuticle?

A) it’s not my cuticle, it’s my lanula and b) hello! I did polish it – it’s bright pink. Do guys not know anything?

Well whatever, I think they look stylish, elegant and trendy so I wear my pink and red half moon nail art proudly.

To create the ‘half moon’ effect, I used round paper reinforcers over the pink base (once it was 100% dry) to create the half moon perfect shape.

What’s your opinion on pink and red?

Until next time,

    I love it. I always liked those two colors together in tops (and some pants, too). I think it looks great like that.
