Reusing a manicure... 2True Shade 13

Saturday, 27 April 2013

Hello!  It's the weekend!  Hooray!  For today's post I wanted to show you how you can reuse a manicure and get those extra few days out of something (in particular if you've had a bit of tip wear).  I did a post recently reusing a couple of manicures, which you can see here.

So to start, here is a polish I picked up the other week that was sitting in my "please swatch me *puppy eyes*" box.  This is 2True Shade 13, which is a dark grey colour.  Miraculously it was not a shade I already owned, so I had to try it out.  I'm a big fan of my pale Kiko grey so I was interested to see how a darker shade might work.

I appreciate that this colour might not be everyone's bag, but I quite like it anyway.  I reckon it'd look lovely topped with a glitter, perhaps a pink, black and white one, like Pink Pantha by Lush Lacquer.

So, got yourself some tip wear?  Here's a solution!  I decided to jazz this up with some stripey tips.  First I painted a coat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and then I used Misa Hot People Like You (I love this neon pink) to paint another strip across my nails.

So, bored of your mani but don't want to start all over again?  I grabbed my Barry M Nail Art Pens and triangled it up.

So, just to show you that you can get some extra miles out of your manicure if you don't feel like taking it all off and starting again.  Obviously there are tons of different colour combinations you can do and different designs, so I hope this is helpful!
