Fall Beach Mani Using Sinful Shine Prosecco, Illamasqua Facet & Girly Bits Love Ya Beach

Howdy there!  I'm sitting here watching the Giant's/Cardinals game and I figured I'd toss up a post while I was on the computer.  I am usually pretty good at avoiding hoopla around polish crazes and lately it's been Sinful Shine Prosecco this, Prosecco that and everyone has to have it and it's selling on eBay for crazy raised prices of $12 (instead of the $1.99 it typically is).  Nuts right?  I had zero intention of driving around seeking this polish out.  Well I wandered into a local Rite Aid to get toothbrushes and body wash for my son and hullo, there's a full display of Sinful Shine holiday colors - including Prosecco.  So I got one (for $1.99).  Well after some discussion with my friend Michelle at Ehmkay Nails, we came up with a cool idea to use it in a mani so here it is!  It reminds me of a chilly Fall day at the beach with the blend of taupe, brown, gold and aqua colors.  

*nothing to disclose*

I started this mani with 2 coats of Sinful Shine Prosecco as a base.  Prosecco is a cool taupe with a heap of golden shimmer.  It's really pretty and I imagine it would be pretty flattering on just about any skin tone.  It also has a great formula and applied very nicely.  I then used Illamasqua Facet, placing a bit on a damp makeup sponge and lightly dabbed it on the tips of my nails blending it upwards.  Facet is a totally gorgeous "grey mauve with gold and copper particles."  I did 2-3 coats via sponging it on.  I loved the way it looked alone but I knew it needed something else.  Insert AH-HA moment!  Girly Bits Love Ya Beach!  I totally love this polish and am so glad I have a bottle of it (actually I wish I had 2 and hadn't given away my spare bottle).  This is the best beachy glitter polish in the world.  I used 2 coats of Love Ya Beach and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
