GOSH Cosmetics has brought in some fabulous nail colours for SS15 and one of my favourites is Sea Foam, a beautiful blue with a shade between air force blue and cerulean.
It had been a while since I had a spotty manicure on. I’ve been meaning to do one for ages, and this week I finally got round to it!
I went for a pastel colours version: blue and yellow. This blue, Oxford from Nails Inc, has been a favourite for a very long time. The yellow came in the same set, and is called Wimbledon.
I used my one of my dotting tools to get the dots close to perfect (they never are!). Overall, a very easy mani to do, and very cute.
The polishes apply ok. As they are a bit on the old side, they stained a bit. I used two coats of the blue and three of the yellow.
Extra shine was given with the Seche Vite topcoat and durability is always fantastic with Nails Inc polishes!
Well, I went dot crazy. Truly crazy. It started as a desire to create a fish scales effect, but it just looked wrong as I was using warm shades (in my crazy head). So I went out of order and out of control, and created something I am not sure I like or not.
Still, I stuck with it for the week and was even asked if I was wearing foils! Kinda got used to it.
Anyway… I used Barry M foil effects in gold and the dots are Leighton Denny’s orange Hanky Panky, a shimmery yellow from H&M and Colorama’s red 40 graus.
I applied the gold as base and used three different sizes dots from my dotting tool set in the other colours… I finished with a topcoat.
