Rainbow polka dots continued...

Friday, 8 March 2013

Yesterday I showed you quite a labour intensive manicure that involved 35 polishes.  I couldn't quite bear to take it off straight away so I decided to jazz it up further to get a bit more mileage out of it!

I used some nail guides with a wavy pattern and stuck them down on the centre of my nail and used A-England Bridal Veil and painted down the edges.  I topped with a Beauty UK matte top coat.  Striping tape and nail guides (or sellotape!) are really useful to jazz up your nails and get an extra couple of days out of your nails if you can't bear to change them completely yet.

Then I was staring at my nails and thought, OOOH! THEY LOOK A BIT SNAKEY!  So I added eyes.  I decided not to matte over the top so that the eyes stuck out more.  This is probably a bit silly, but it made me chuckle a bit.

  1. I did laugh when I saw the snake eyes. Great mani as usual.

    Where did you get the wavy nail guide from Claire?

    1. I got them a couple of years ago from eBay, a big bumper pack with loads of different shapes, I can't seem to find the actual ones I got, but there are these:

      which are the same ones that I've got but sold as separate sheets. They are pretty good, I always forget I have them!
