To create this look, I started with a base of Cult Cosmetics DTLA, and then with hardly any polish on the brush, I dabbed on China Glaze Tongue & Chic, China Glaze Don't Make Me Wine, and Essie Nothing Else Metals. I love these colors together, and I think it looked so cool in real life, but the photos didn't show it so well - so I took some macro shots for you to get the real beauty of this technique!
On the left is an extreme close up of the polish on my middle finger nail. (You can click on this image to enlarge it more!) It almost looks like snake skin up close, doesn't it?!
I really love how subtle the teal and pink are in this manicure. I think they go really well with the metallic purple - I believe it's my first time using that metallic color from Essie, and I'm glad I bought it!
Here is a visual of the polishes I used:
