Easter skittle

Hi everyone!


When browsing for some inspiration I came across this manicure. I had a white and a lilac polish on my desk, patiently waiting to be put away and this is what happened next:

indoors, no flash
I started with one/two medium coats of Barry M Fondant, one of three new colors for spring 2015. I've read somewhere the Gellys shouldn't be applied to thin to make sure they can self level. Unfortunately I can't remember where but if it was you, you were absolutely right... thank you!!

After that I had to do the lines on my ring finger and thumb. Since I can't freehand at all I decided to stamp them using essence Stampy Polish in white and Bundle Monster plate BM-411. The flowers on my middle finger was done with the same polish as well using Born Pretty plate BP-20, after which I dotted the hearts with OPI Good Grief! And while I was dotting I used the Essence for my pinky. I finished with a generous coat of Seche Vite to smoothen the texture of the dots.

These are the contributors to today's nails:
Barry M Fondant, essence Stampy Polish in white, OPI Good Grief!
I really like the look of my nails so chances are my nails will still look like this coming Sunday. I think they look just like the wrappers for those little chocolate easter eggs... and now I have a craving for chocolate :)

Do you create special manicures for special occasions?



Barry M Fondant was bought from Alice & Jo.
