My first sponged mani

I haven't posted in a few days, had my mind full of other stuff and wore this mani for several days. I liked it so much that I didn't mind that though =)

I used 2 coats of Orly Purple Crush (thanks to my bf <3) and sponged it with Zoya Alegra. I'm not good at naming colors and finishes, but that Orly surely ain't a purple! And to add to the confusion, it doesn't look like the color in the bottle when it's on your nails either, lol. It's one of those berry-fuchsia kinda colors that just doesn't photograph well, booo. It's almost a neon in sunlight and also dries up slightly matte, and it's just a darker, richer color irl.

Alegra was a great match, it blended much better than it shows on my pics. I got inspired to sponge the tips by the lovely AmyGrace from The Polished Perfectionist, she does some awesome manicures, including sponging. And I'm wondering why I never tried it before, it was so easy!

Have a great weekend :)
