Is this lipstick a good shade for me?

The thumb is part of an entry for a nail art contest. More on that when she releases the entries to be posted. Of all the nails I had done in different ways, I couldn't bring myself to remove the thumb. It was too cute and needed a mani all of it's own. So I built the rest around it.
The polishes I used are China Glaze Secondhand Silk, China Glaze For Audrey (my frankened shimmer bottle), and Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud.

The lipstick you may recognize from The Illustrated Nail, I took inspiration from one of their designs. I used acrylic paints for it, so that it would stay flat and not be super thick.


A girl at work then asked me, "What's the deal with just one nail being a color that doesn't match?" And she was almost snippy and mean about it!
So I told her, just as snippy back.... "It does match! It all coordinates with my lipstick *showed my thumb* and how have you not noticed my nails before? They've been a lot crazier than this!"

Some people..... just don't understand....

  7. I understand why you wanted to leave the little lipstick on. Its too cute! And I like that it is a very simple manicure (not the design of the lipstick, but that it isn't crazy on every nail or anything).. its got a fresh look to it. LOVE!

  8. Ew, I hate when people act lie that. It's not her business why your nails look like that. The accent nails look AMAZING.
