Quilted Metal: Essie Jamaican Me Crazy and Over the Edge

My mani today was inspired by the lovely Victoria at The Manicurator. Talk about perfect manis and pics! She’s my blogging hero. Anyway, I’ve wanted to recreate her Lattice Mani for forever.

I started with a base of Essie Jamaican Me Crazy, a shimmery fuchsia. I used two coats and a coat of Seche Vite. After it was completely dry, I taped off a criss-cross pattern with striping tape.

Then I polished one generous coat of Essie Over the Edge over everything and removed the tape immediatly after polishing each nail. Essie calls Over the Edge a “dramatic metallic midnight silver.” (Who wants to be a nail polish namer?  I do!) Victoria used a dotting tool to create dots at every intersection. I did a test and the Jamacian me Crazy wasn't opaque enough to pull that off. So I skipped that part and finished with another generous coat of Seche Vite.

I really like this color combo. It changes the whole look of the design.
