Happy women’s day! Today is a public holiday over here but I must admit, it has been one super long weekend for us. We took Monday and Tuesday off and enjoyed the really long weekend. 2 day week? heck yeah! How is your week treating you?
Before I show you what I did on my nails today I just want to mention the 31 Day Challenge. I have mentioned in a few posts how I was unsure if I should do it and I think I got my answer. My nails showed me they need a bit more TLC and I need the regular schedule to give them that. Besides the break I had the other day, my index had another little break and I can see it is going to start a nasty split soon if I don’t take it easy. So I will NOT be doing the 31 Day Challenge this year but you can bet your socks I will be doing it again next year. Are you doing it?
Ok, onto the new. I had some polishes I wanted to swatch and they looked so pretty together that I turned it into some nail art. So let me show you what I did and then show you some polishes.
I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – I just can’t-aloupe on all my nails. I then added 1 coat of China Glaze – Sun’s out, buns out on my ring and middle finger. Once it was all dry I stamped using Lina Feeling Shapely 07 and Mundo de Unas – white to stamp over my ring and middle finger. I then double stamped using the same image and Mundo de Unas – Tulip. I topcoated and that was that.
What do you think? I really like the colours together and I really love the image I stamped. This was the first nail art I did after my nail break. I felt very self conscious about them so I didn’t go too crazy but then I really ended up liking them. What do you think? Does it work? Let me show you some swatches
China Glaze – I just cant-aloupe
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a peachy / melon / coral creme. It had a really nice formula and it applied really nicely. It wasn’t thick and gloopy and also not thin and runny. I also thought it had a really nice opacity so looking forward to trying this in a future Tuesday Stamping.
China Glaze – Sun’s out, buns out
This is one coat over I just cant-aloupe with no topcoat. This is a goldy shimmery beauty. It’s super sheer and just won’t work on it’s own but its a great one to layer. It worked beautifully with this base but I am excited to try it with different colours.
Do you have any of these? Do you have a favourite? Have you tried the Lina plates? I am OBSESSED with them! I can’t recommend them enough. If you want to see some plate swatches just let me know.
Thanks for reading,
