Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream (306); Models Own Snow White; Barry M 3in1 Nail Paint; Ring - Accessorize
To crudely quote Marina & the Diamonds, we have indeed got obsessions. My personal obsession is... my nails.
I don't consider myself a shallow bimbo incapable of thinking of anything other than nail art but I think it's the fact that I am doing quite a serious (aka dull-as-dishwater) degree that I need a release from the frequent boredom of university life. So nails it is!
I think I'm going to start doing a 'nails of the week' feature as I try to change them as often as possible, within reason.
For this week's nails, I wanted something really different... Animal print are everywhere at the moment but I've never seen polka dots (although I'm sure they exist) and I am so into the kind of Cath Kidston-y look and polka dots are just fabulous in general so here we are - Cath Kidston-inspired nails.
I 'got the look' (how pretensious!) by painting two coats of Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream (306) (I'm always on the hunt for a lighter, cornflower-y blue, if anyone knows of a good one - not tested on animals - please let me know) and polka dotting on Models Own Snow White then keeping it all in place with a standard clear varnish.
The overall effect is not quite as neat as I had hoped for but the nature of nails - and my rather wobbly hands! - means that it's pretty difficult to achieve a perfect look, but there we are - 'rustic' nails!
Ps. Answer my poll on the last post s'il vous plait - would hugely appreciate it, thanks loves!
