Today I have TWO mani’s for you! Yup two of the suckers!
Only because I missed my last one and just did a new mani last night 😛
Anyways, first things first…NEW HAUL!
I love these little Beyond Kingdom polishes. I get them from ebay, and they come from China. They cost about $1.50 (AUD) per bottle and they’re fruit/sweet scented. The green is Green Tea, Brown is Chocolate, the blues are Vanilla/blueberry, etc…you get the idea. So my nails smell like fruit tingles today.
The main reason I bought them is because I’ve been dying to do one of those pastel clouds (I call them lolly necklace) mani’s ever since I saw the amazing Demelza do one (I like to call her ze Master, her nails are incredible).
And they’re pretty simple too, it just takes patience.
Anyway here it is.
This mani reminds me of every little girls most favourite loolies….the lolly neclace!
It’s so pretty…I love it!! One could say I’m getting a little long in the tooth for a mani like this…my response to that is SCREW THEM!
To be honest, if you get to my age (45) and you still care what ppl think about you…then you’re allowing other ppl opinions to dictate your own life & happiness. If I won’t let my partner dictate to me…why in the hell would I let some uppity stranger? Or colleague/friend? Granted it might not be appropriate in some workplaces, but I work from home…yewwww…so I can sit around all day naked and edit film if I want 😛 (not that I do…or do I? You’ll never know…just knock before you come in, or give me a quick bell, before you drop by).
I like it, it looks pretty and cool all at once 😛
OK how I went about it, I used a white base coat. I should have used two, as it was streaky and the streaks showed slightly through the colours. Other than that, I picked out 5 pastel colours, laid them in a row and just tried to paint it on in the right order. I messed up slightly, but that’s ok…it’s just for fun. The idea is to do 3-4 downward strokes diagonally, it’s pretty much self explanatory I would think. It got REALLY thick at the end of my nail, and the Seche Vite puckered the polish, sadly. There’s probably a way around that, but I didn’t bother watching the tute after watching it last year. Demelza prolly has a fix, but I’m too impatient and just went for it.
OK mani number Two…Morgan Taylor’s Bright Eyes & All The Right Moves.
Ever since I first saw the MT website I’ve been dying to get my hands on this turquoise beauty – Bright Eyes. It is stunning!!!
And ATRM is an incredibly deep purple glitter, my neice Shardae called it ‘drag queen polish’…just because it’s flashy! I’m not a flashy dresser and make up (when I wear it) isn’t over-the-top…so why not go all out of the nails I say 🙂
Like all the MT’s they go on like a breeze and are easy to take off.
So there you go…I’m done for the week. I hope you guys like the two new looks 🙂
