Hello blog beauties!
I dabbled in a little bit of nail art today and was very pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. This is a rather rare occasion for me because I'm so plain when it comes to nails and most of all, impatient. So the blogger in me got the camera out to capture this mani miracle!
So I had some time to spend on my nails today, and to relax myself into it I put a few drops of lavender oil onto my wrists to make the whole experience a little more therapeutic than usual. And the lavender oil must have worked because for once I sat there and waited!
I used three of my Mavala nail varnishes for this nail look today. South Beach Pink, Violet Diamond and the Strong, Flexible top coat. I went about my usual routine, two coats of pink and then a quick coat of the mavala top coat and that would be me done. But not today! I seen this look on Vivianna Does Makeup blog where she done it in very beautiful nude colour and gold glitter, if memory serves me well! And I loved how pretty it looked on her nails. I don't wear glitter nail varnish that often because it's such a pain to remove but this is such a nice way to use it!
To do the dots I used the threading end of a sewing needle, dipped it into my glitter polish and dotted it carefully onto each nail. You can obviously do this with a dotting tool which would be less risky than poking a needle onto your nail! Or even a cocktail stick or hair pin would be good for this too. After it had dried I then applied the top coat and it was finished! Super easy and a bit more interesting than just plain nails. If you try to recreate this look please leave a link so I can see your lovely nails.
What nail art have you tried lately? Do you enjoy doing your nails or prefer someone else to do them? What colour are you wearing today? I'd love to hear from you as always!
See you soon!
