Siobhan from For the Love of Nail Art is no stranger to anyone reading my blog. She is the one who inspired me and really created this monster. Not only is she incredibly talented and creative she is also one of the nicest people I know. She is also completely whacky and nutty like me and I am lucky to know her.
She asked me to do a guest post on her blog (which is such an honour) and of course in return I asked her to do one for me. So here it is!
The way I see Michelle:
Hello *waves*! It’s me V!I asked M to write me a guest post a while ago and she asked me to do one back for her so I figured I’d like to do a representation of how I see her. I thought that would be way cooler a tutorial or just a regular mani post.
And so was my Mittle (Skittle for M) mani was born.
Theme colour is PINK. Why? It’s M’s favourite colour and also the colour of her hair! (It’s also my favourite colour so BONUS!)
Polish used:Base colours: Tip Top’s Melting Marshmallow, Tickled Pink, Sitting Pretty and Pot O Berries.
Additional colours for art: Revlon’s Gold Coin, Foschini Colours’ Kaleidoscope, Sinful Colors’ Snow me White and Tip Top’s Night Life glitter.
PINKY: a pink polka dot mashup to represent M’s love for polkas. I did them in a half moon fashion, inspired by her half moon polka dot post http://ordinarymisfit.com/2013/04/03/curvy-dots
HOW TO: paint two coats of pastel pink; using a dotting tool and three shades of pink, make alternating lines of polkas.
RING: a golden heart to represent her heart of gold. She’s so kind and generous. She goes the extra mile for anyone.
HOW TO: paint two coats of metallic pink; using a dotting tool and gold polish, make a V shape and fill it in to form a heart.
MIDDLE: a jelly sarmie to represent her hidden shine. Her shine isn’t out there up in your face. It’s a little hidden but with some time you get to see her really sparkle! (This is also my second successful jelly sarmie so it’s my fav of the mittle.)
HOW TO: paint two coats of jelly pink, paint one/two coats of a glitter topper, paint one coat of your jelly pink over the glitter.
INDEX: an ombre leopard print because it’s on a stamp plate that came from her. She’s also fierce like leopard!!! And she loves stamping.
HOW TO: paint two coats of dark pink; on your stamping plate paint half the design in white and the other half in metallic pink, scrape, transfer to stamper and stamp on.
THUMB: an upside down pink glitter ombre because she’s crazy and fun and cool. She’s an ordinary misfit in an upside down world making her different!
HOW TO: paint two coats of pastel pink, using pink glitter paint layers of it from the cuticle up moving further up with each layer.
So which of my fingers has your favourite design? In truth even though the jelly sarmie is my fav, I love all the designs because it is such a cool mani!
Thank you M for allowing me to spam your blog and for being as kwaai as you are!!
Wow!!! I love every single design! Thank you so much Siobhan and I am so honoured to have you on the blog. I hope we can make this a regular feature? You are so kind. Thank you!! xx
Do you love this as much as I do?
Thanks for reading!
