Urgh, what a horrible Monday! Still only 4 more days till the weekend…sigh… Hope you had a better day than I have. On the plus side through, my order from Rainbow Connection arrived containing my Cirque Vice Collection!! Squeee! I am in love with all the colours and will share them with you next week! I’ve also ordered some of that latex paint-y on stuff to create an impenetrable barrier when stamping and whatnot! Will give that a spin too and let you know what it’s like 🙂
Another thing that I’m really loving is CND Solar Oil! I rediscovered a bottle in the Drawer of Regret; a drawer containing various beauty products which I have bought on a whim, normally because I’ve been sucked in by the advert and/or sales assistant or it looked fine in the shop… I have sooo many foundations that I can’t wear unless I actually turn into a Wotsit (that’s a Cheetos to those State-side). But the Solar Oil has been promoted from the Drawer of Regret to the Drawer of Products that Actually Do What They Say They Do (probably need to think of a catchier title) as it’s brilliant! I’ve seen real improvements with my cuticles and hangnails are a thing of the past! It smells gorgeous too, well if you like smelling like almonds. Or marzipan…
Today’s mani is wings. I was in a bit of a quandary as to what to do for this prompt. I was going to do a bird themed mani but then I remembered that bumblebees have wings so I went for those as I haven’t done bumblebee nails before which is odd as every time I see one on the internetz if always go ‘oooh’ or ‘cute!’
For this I used:
- OPI ‘Alpine Snow’ (accent nail) 2 coats
- OPI ‘I Just Can’t Copa-cabana’ (base colour) 1 coat
- Maybelline Colorshow ‘ Electric Yellow’ (base colour and beeeees) 1 coat
- DRK-A Stamping Plate
- Konad Black Stamping Polish
- L’Oreal Nail confetti
- BarryM Nail Art Pen – Black
- Seche Vite
Is it me, but doesn’t that stamp look more like a football than a honeycomb?! Maybe the Bees play football in their spare time… Well, it can’t be all honey making and pollen collecting can it, they need some R&R!
I do love Electric Yellow but it needs about 10000 coats to opacity hence why I layered it over Cabana.
That’s all for today but do check out the other Wings manis for today’s prompt!
See you all soon!
