So I actually won the base colour, tokyo pearl, from a ‘Birthday and general appriciation giveaway’ (I won bundle#3) held by the wonderful Cat at ‘‘Cat’s Claws’. It’s a lovely polish that didn’t show up well in the photo the first time I used it (feathers theme for OMD2 challenge which I won’t even link it because it was so horrendous). I’ve not been into anything intricate lately, more so lines and geometry etc etc, so I hope yous aren’t getting too bored with my (almost) repetition.
So I’ve kind of cheated for this design. If you can remember yesterdays (here), I’ve actually removed the studded nails because they smudged off – my base layers must’ve been too thick/not dry, keeping the confetti ones. Not because the thought of having to take off catchy glitter is freaking me out or anything… I had no idea what I was doing so just went for it and it’s resulted in my taping being weird and then it all went over the top and the nails don’t really match each other, but hey. It’s a summer carnival design, anything bright goes right!….
So I totally shouldn’t be spending money on nail varnish at the moment but… I’ve had my eye on this Claire’s accessories confetti polish (even though they’re calling it a glitter polish) for ages and I gave in and bought it… It’s been so sunny lately – it’s lovely! So this design is perfectly weather appropriate, being cheery and bright.
The only studs I have are metallic coloured which didn’t suit the look I was aiming for. So I just painted them first, let them dry then applied as normal!
