BOOM! I'm back!

Backdated post for a design I did sometime in May.

So I had a long absence from doing nails from early April to late May,  as during this time I moved house (and moves are not great for nails, there were breakages AAGGHH!) but also, it was during this time that my husband actually became husband! Wedding YAY! So as you can imagine I was way too busy with pre-wedding organisational hell and then post-wedding married bliss! I of course did a wonderful mani for my wedding day, but was way too busy to take photos (boooo) so I think at some point I willl have to recreate my wedding mani to show you all cos it was soooooo damn beautiful and sparkly!

Anyways, once everything had settled down and I finally had the time to sit and do my nails again I wanted to do something REALLY nice. What can I say, I totally rocked my come back mani.

Check out these for pretties! For the base I used Sinful Colours Cinderella, which was not at all opaque and took four coats to get good coverage, but which was made easier by one of the weddings gifts my mum had brought for me, a quite powerful electric nail dryer which sped up the process considerably! The colour is so beautiful, it may look like just pale blue from here but it has this really fine baby pink shimmery micro glitter that just set it alight. Iinspired by the pink I took one of my no name cheapos from a gift set in neon pink, and using the plastic food wrap ball technique lightly dabbed the darker pink in a cloudy effect over the nails.Then I gave a coat of Australis Crystal Colour holographic flaky topcoat (which unfortunately just wouldn't come out in a photo) and then with Sally Hansen lacquer shine in number 7 and plate BM315 stamped this lovely paisley print.

This was such a stunning mani and I was quite upset when it started to chip, I got a pretty good wear out of it though. It certainly brought some cheer into my life as the cold Aussie winter set in.
