Happily, I think last August's version still holds up (I love that teal!), but I'm really happy with how today's version came out too. I went purple to match my outfit, mixing a range of light, medium, and dark shades, and those shadows and highlights really made the leaves and flowers pop!
The base for these is Pure Ice Shore Bet, which I'm planning to share swatches of in a few days (spoiler alert: I love it), and I'm so drawn to these putty-neutral shades. They look great on their own, and they're awesome under nail art too!
Last year's Hawaiian shirt nails had a little more background and embellishment, which I meant to add to these as well, but I was so smitten with how these were turning out that I just had to leave it alone. They may look a little less "Hawaiian shirt" because of that, but I think I made the right call.
(Self-restraint feels weird.)
