Nails of the Week #41: Soft Petals

I never thought I would actually own this polish but after I found an amazing deal I really couldn't pass it up! I saw swatches of this on several blogs and thought it was the most gorgeous topper ever. I was hesitant to buy it though because these cut out (for lack of a better name) finishes I just don't find much occassion for. I rarely put it on all my fingers so buying a polish just to use as an accent nail seemed silly and waste of space in my collection. However when I found it Beautyland for their amazing going out of business sale I snatched up the last bottle (as well as a whole bunch of other goodies you can check out here) and I'm so pleased I did!

So I actually used two polishes for this look, an extremely sheer pink as the base coat and then the gorgeous blossom themed top coat. The base color that you can't even tell is Essie in Worth The Wait. It is extremely sheer and all it did was kind of even out the color of the nail for me because I wasn't sure how much you could see under the top coat. Ended up being a non issue because the light pink and white specks and glitters are so dense that I could have gotten away with doing it on a naked nail. This beautiful top coat is OPI in Petal Soft and I must say it took quite a bit of patience to dig out the little flowers to make sure I had at least one on each nail. Time consuming, yes, worth it, absolutely! So now you can see why I hesitated to buy the polish at full price because the effort of using it would definitely deter me, so I'm happy I was able to snag it for just $4!
