I hope you’ve had a great week so far. It’s been really chilly the last few days so it feels like proper winter. Well, as much as Durban can have winter.
I mentioned a while back about doing some nail art that is more ‘wearable’ especially in corporate environments. I’ve been trying to do a few but I always end up with something nude. Even though I think nude is super versatile and wearable I definitely do not think it is the only option. So I am going to show you one that was born out of that but I liked anyway. Let me show you
I started with 2 coats of ILNP – fame on my pinky and 3 coats of China Glaze – Beaches & toes on the rest of my nails. Once it was completely dry I used some tape to tape off the angled tip of my middle and ring finger and used ILNP – Fame for the tip part. Once that was dry I stamped a straight line where the two polishes met using Lina – Feeling shapely 01 and Mundo de Unas black. I then used Lina – All about love 01 and Mundo de Unas – Fiji to pop a heart in the middle of each line. I topcoated everything and voila!
What do you think? I definitely think this is wearable. You can do all the stamping in black or even add a pop of colour with the tips. I do also have a swatch for you
China Glaze – Beaches & toes
This is 3 coats with topcoat. This is a lighter taupe nude packed with micro silver holo glitter. It is a beautiful colour and the shimmer is just gorgeous. It was pretty opaque in 2 coats but I thought it needed that extra 1 to get rid of the visible nail line completely but you might find 2 enough. It’s really beautiful. You can see more of the holo shimmer in the bottle than my nails unfortunately (on the photo, not in real life) but it is a gorgeous polish anyway. This is from the Body & Sol collection (and if you’re in South Africa you can click here to buy)
