Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We had a busy start to the weekend because I had to catch up on loads of shopping 😉
Anyway, I mentioned last week that I have some special guest posts coming up and today is time for another one.
Michelle did a guest post on my blog for me and of course I had to do one for her. I absolutely loved her mani for my post. I really think she is very talented and a very special woman, so I was very nervous about doing a mani that would live up to her high standards and do her justice. It took me quite some time to conceptualize this mani. I wanted to make it personal like hers was for me. This is what I came up with:
Michelle loves pink and hearts, she also has a big heart and I wanted to show her love for nail art and others by incorporating hearts into my mani. I used a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and “glued” holographic nail art hearts onto the nail and covered it with a generous amount of top coat.
Michelle is crazy about dots and I love gradients, so I thought I’d combine our favourites. Of course, the dots had to be pink. Again the base is Snow Me White. The dots closest to the cuticle are Yardley Gel-lac Fuchsia. The middle dots are Maybelline Forever Strong Busy Blush. The dots closest to the tip are Tip Top Melting Marshmallows. Incidentally, Michelle sent all of these pinks to me as gifts (told you she had a big heart).
Here I used a base of Snow Me White and used Tip Top Melting Marshmallows to (try to) create a puzzle piece. Michelle thinks she is a misfit, but I think she fits perfectly into the lives of people who take the time to get to know her. She really is a gem.
I loved Tip Top Melting Marshmallows from the moment I saw it on Michelle’s blog, when she sent it to me, she also started another love affair when she included Tip Top Rocky Road glitter. Michelle was never a big glitter fan, but we are slowly winning her over and that is what this nail represents. Here I layered the Rocky Road over Melting Marshmallows.
Michelle first piqued my interest in nails and nail art. She is always encouraging me to try new things and to keep trying when I feel like I’m failing. After quite a rough first time trying to do an ombre she joked she was going to request I do an ombre mani as a guest post. So I included an ombre, beating her to it and doing it on my own terms (only two nails :P)
Here I used a base coat of Snow Me White and used Yardley Gel-lac Fuchsia and Tip Top Melting Marshmallows to do the ombre.
Thanks so much for having me, Michelle and thank you for helping me discover a wonderful new hobby that brings me so much joy.
