Oh my goodness this week is just flying! I have quite a busy week with sewing and all I really want to do is paint my nails. But I will persevere and sneak in a bit of polish time here and there. How has your wee been so far?
I did a bit if nail art the other day and I finally feel like I have more nail art than swatches. But never fear, I do still have a million swatches to show you soon. For today though, some purple petals.
I started out with 1 coat of Essence – Wild white ways on all my nails. While that was drying I made the decals on my mani mat. I stamped using Pueen109 and MoYou stamping polish in black. I then used Sinful Colors – Pull over for the middle of each flower. I then did each row of petal in a different shade of purple going from light to dark. The first one was Essence – a whisper of spring. The next row of petals was coloured in using China Glaze – Tart-y for the party. The very outer petals was coloured in using Essence – Beautiful lies. I then left the decals to dry completely and then did a sponged gradient on my pinky and index. I used Essence – a whisper of spring at the tips and China glaze – Tart-y for the party in the middle with Essence – Beautiful lies on the cuticle end. I topcoated the gradient and then applied the decals to my middle and ring fingers. I ended up with a final layer of topcoat and that was that.
What do you think? I really love the colours and I love the image. It was one of the images I needed slightly longer nails for so it seemed like a great time to finally use it. I have since lost some length on my nails again but luckily not as short as it was. I liked how this turned out. I hope your week is going well. Can you believe December is just a few hours away?
Thanks for reading,
