Seifried Estate ‘Split Rock’ Sauvignon Blanc 2011 + ‘Silver Split’ French Mani

silver split french mani with Split Rock New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2011

I never win anything…

No, seriously. No matter how much I study, prep, train, tap into raw talent, hope, wish, pray or enter 8,957 contests, sweepstakes and bake-offs, I never win anything.

But somehow I won two bottles of wine in a promotion from Virgin Wines.

Yes, that Virgin.

Yes, wine.

“Bright, citrus-charged” Seifried Estate ‘Split Rock’ Sauvignon Blanc 2011 from New Zealand supposedly pairs well with sushi or fresh seafood. I’ll take their word for it.

For me, the bottle’s label design is an impossibly perfect pairing with a modern silver “split” French manicure so…here we are.

MANICURE

metallic silver nail polish: essie ‘no place like chrome’ or zoya ‘trixie’
French white tip: Sally Hansen French Manicure White Tip Pen available at any drugstore or amazon.com
black stripe: nail striping tape available on amazon.com

A special note on top coat: I often forgo a top coat because 1) I’m lazy, 2) the extra layer makes my nails too “thick,” and 3) I change my polish so much that I don’t need the extra long-wearing, chip-resistification. However, I do like the ultra glossy look (see previous post re: wet-look nails to avoid shaking hands during flu-season), especially in the case of nail striping tape, which needs that additional adhesive and seal to keep the ends from lifting up and peeling. I used Sally Hansen, but any top coat works, obvs.
