Hey hi guys,
Did you have a good weekend? It’s been so ridiculously hot that I am really struggling. Roll on cooler weather please! I am a little sad because yesterday was Muddy Princess and I obviously couldn’t do it. I was ok about it till the weekend rolled around and then all I could think about was me NOT doing it. What did you get up to? I am hoping to get back to some nail stuff today otherwise it’s going to get REAL quiet around here after tomorrow 😉
Time for another week of #52weeknailchallenge hosted by Polish Portfolio. As always, you can follow this # to see what other people are creating and you can find the list of prompts for this year below.
The prompt this week is Valentines day and I have to be honest, till this prompt rolled around in my planner I didn’t even think of Valentines day. This also explains the lack of valentine nail art around here 😉 Of course, the hospital stay and recovery didn’t help. I am hoping to keep things going without any break in posts. Here’s hoping. In the mean time, let me show you what I did,
I started with 2 coats of Nicole by OPI – Wear something Spar-Kylie on my ring finger and 2 coats of ILNP – Pink mimosa on the rest of my nails. Once it was all dry I stamped on my pinky and middle fingers using Lina – All about love 01 and Mundo de Unas – Orchid. I then used the same plate and Mundo de Unas – Black to make the heart outlines. On my index finger I stamped using BPX-L014 and double stamped the words using Mundo de Unas – Orchid and then Mundo de Unas – Black. I topcoated everything except my ring finger and that was that.
I really like the textured Wear Something Spar-Kylie and of course, my camera didn’t really like that shade of pink too much. It is closer to the shade of the pink stamping of the hearts in colour. I also really like the layered stamped hearts too much. I knew Pink Mimosa had some holo in it but while I was wearing it I didn’t see much. I just assumed it was a very subtle holo. A few days later while I was driving in the sun I saw how holo it really was and it was perfection. I am sad it isn’t so easy to pink up the holo on this polish but it is beautiful regardless. What do you think? Valentine-ish enough?
Thanks for reading,
