So, it seems that it has been snowing all over the U.K except here in Surrey 😦 I love snow days and my three year old has been so excited in anticipation but no… none has arrived. So, instead, I thought I’d have a go at a snowy mani to get me into the Christmassy mood.
I used the following:
Green polish & stamping – Moyou London ‘Olive Tree‘
Glitter – Glam Polish ‘An unexpected Journey‘
White Flakes – Nails Inc ‘Kensington Church Street‘
White polish & stamping – Twinkled T ‘Glow Up‘
Stamping plates – Born Pretty ‘BP LOO8‘ & ‘BP LOO6‘
October is here, the leaves on the trees are changing colour, nights are rapidly drawing in, the clocks will soon go back and summer is now certainly a distant memory. With that in mind I wanted to use colours that have a strong Autumn vibe to them.
Here I have combined two polishes for each nail. We have:
Yellow: Potion Polish – Marvelous Maple Topped with il etait un vernis – Hello Sunshine
Purple: Leighton Denny ‘Raspberry Afair’ Topped with Tonic ‘The Answer is 42’
Blue/Green: Nails Inc ‘Gosfield Street’ Topped with ILNP ‘Interstellar’
Red: Nails Inc ‘Saville Row’ Topped with ‘New Burlington Place’
I recently saw a version of this manicure on Instagram @luciadoesnails, I asked if she would mind if I did something similar and she was happy for me to do so.
I used Kiss Short Oval press on nails with a Base Colour of Essie ‘Ballet Slippers’. I then handpainted the following: Dark Pink – Nails Inc ‘Sloane Street’, Medium Pink – Nails Inc ‘Brompton Place’ & Baby Pink – Nails Inc ‘Totes Pink’ all finished off with my trusty Seche Vite.
