The theme for this year is the 'Year of the Blogger', celebrating bloggers and what we do (which for me lately hasn't been much! Sorry!). The colours I was provided with for Blog Fest were 'Wisteria', 'Marine', and 'Peaches n' Cream'.
|L-R: 'Wisteria', 'Marine', 'Peaches n' Cream'|
As part of Blog Fest, we're challenged to come up with some nail art containing the three colours we've been sent. I'm not going to lie, this was one hell of a challenge for me. Although they look fine on screen and they're beautiful on their own, in real life I found that these three colours clashed and I pulled my hair out for about 3 weeks before coming up with this final design, using the black to offset the clash:
I also have a little tutorial for you. Here goes!
Step 1: The night before you do your mani, paint some polish onto sticky tape/baking paper and leave to dry overnight. I used 2 coats of 'Wisteria' and 'Marine' and 3 of 'Peaches n' Cream' for opacity.
Step 2: Carefully peel the strips of dried polish from the sticky tape/baking paper and cut them in to small rectangles. Mine were approximately 8mm by 5mm.
Step 3: Apply a protective base coat and then paint your nails black.
Step 4: Once your black polish has dried, apply a clear coat of polish and use tweezers to position the polish pieces and some studs on your nails. You'll need to work quickly while the polish is still wet.
Step 5: Apply a clear top coat to smooth out the polish pieces and hold the studs in place and your done!
What do you guys think? These are my first piCture pOlish shades, and they won't be my last. They apply smoothly and I love that 'Wisteria' and 'Marine' are opaque in 2 coats.
