For my nails I don’t really obey seasons – people go darker for autumn and winter, but I just wear whatever colour suits my mood… and that’s why I decided to go with a pastel tie-dye.
I’ve been neglecting my nails of the week posts – actually, I just forgot! Awful! So, from a very long time ago, I give you the last World Cup mani (and you’ think I’d rather forget as soon as possible…)
The World Cup may be but I still have a little back log of WC nails going round! This is the third of four designs, so one more to go!
This is a design I did a few times before and love. It ended up being less out there than the others and many people complimented it as a “lovely summery” manicure!
Yes, I am still obsessed by gradients. I just love them. So, I gave myself another one: a lovely yellow, orange and red, to go with my tropical mood, as I am on holidays in Brazil (hence the lack of posts).
I used the H&M bright yellow summer sunrise, Impala’s orange aleixo and one of my fave reds ever, Colorama’s 40 graus. I used the sponging technique and applied the gorgeous Nails Inc electric lane topcoat. Ended up with a good seven layers and a lovely heart nail tattoo on my ring finger, from SkinArt UK to finish off the design!
It lasted very well – eight days including pool days!
This mani lifted my spirits, it is cheerful and looks forward to the summer!
