A really quick one today. Miniaturemanicures approached me on instagram and asked if I would do a collaboration with her. So I am sharing that today. I hope to share a link to hers as soon as she has it up 🙂
We obviously didn’t have the same polishes but I tried to get the closest possible to the polishes she was using. So here are the polishes we used. Hers – Mine
- Sinful Colors – be happy -> China Glaze – For Audrey
- Sally Hansen – Mint sorbet -> Zoya Neely
- Essie – Go Ginza -> Tip Top – Fairy dust
The brief was: striping tape with alternating horizontal and vertical lines and gold studs. Here is what I came up with.
My pinky and middle fingers are the same. For these I started with 2 coats of Tip Top – fairy dust. When that was completely dry I added the striping tape across the tips and then added Zoya – Neely and immediately removed the tape. I then top coated and added a small, round gold stud at the base of my nail.
My ring and index are the same. For these I started with 2 coats of Zoya – Neely and when it was completely dry, I added striping tape vertically across my nail. Leaving a bigger gap on the one side to create a solid colour. Then I added China Glaze – For audrey and removed the tape immediately. Topcoat and done.
My thumb was a little different. I added 2 coats of Zoya – Neely to one side on my nail and Tip top – fairy dust on the other half. When that was completely dry I added striping tape vertically and then added China Glaze – For audrey. I can’t quite decide which is my favourite. What do you think?
I will definitely update this post with her version as soon as I have it. Check out her version here. In the mean time, let me know what you think.
Have a great day!
