Hello lovelies, just wanted to do a quick post on my current nails. I go through phases where I really want to experiment with designs and other times I am happy as long as they are neatly painted in a nice colour! This week I have used my nail stickers to create something a little bit different as I have much more time on my hands with exams out of the way and also wanted to do them for my night out last night.
|My newest Essie purchases: Lovie Dovie & Watermelon....LOVE them both.|
I already had my nails painted in Essie's Watermelon the day before because nails have to be completely dry before the stickers are stuck on. I have talked about the stickers before here but briefly they are only used as a template and are removed afterwards to reveal the design. You can get different shaped ones and I got a pack on eBay with assorted shapes. I stuck on the stickers one by one and painted OPI's Designer...De Better on over the reddy pink colour, I then peeled off the sticker off every nail and painted clear top coat over the top to make them realllly shiny and to prevent chipping! I don't want these bad boys chipping after this effort! I started off by doing a design on my thumb, middle finger and little finger (below) but then changed my mind and thought I would do each nail differently and the result is that I absolutely love them! Definitely inspired me to use the stickers more often.
I love both these colours and together I think they look really cool, the stickers can be used to create designs with any colours but I love the metallic. Designer...De Better is a champagney coloured metallic nail varnish with tiny bronze flecks in it when you look closely.
