Wow, it has been a while since I posted on the blog, I work in education and have been on summer vacation since the end of June, I may have been a little lazy since then lol. That being said, today my manicure is reminiscent of a vintage damask cloth, damask is a woven fabric with a pattern that is visible on both sides. It also reminds me of vintage tea towels from the 70’s, so an orange and teal colour pallet it is!
I used the reverse stamping technique again, seriously this is the best technique ever! I’m not 100% in love with this mani but it is a fun colour pallet and I wore it for nearly a week!
For this look I used:
Seche Vite Top Coat
Revlon cloud, eclectic
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear perky pink
Maybelline Color Show sweet clementine
Ice shell pink
Essence date in the moonlight
O.P.I. Fast dry top coat
Pueen 38, 48
The rhinestones I used are from my huge haul from Cheeky.
Up next on the blog is a pink art nouveau manicure!
Today my manicure is a retro chandelier look with lots of glitter. I love chandeliers, I spent most of my childhood living in Europe visiting churches and castles, the nobles and the clergy always have the best chandeliers!
So here it is:
I really like the black and chartreuse glitter combo. This colour pallet reminds me of those old school hard cover books they had in the seventies.
I also tried a new base coat product on this one the Quo by Orly strong bond rubberized base coat.
It goes on clear with a dull finish, dries quickly, that is always a plus in my book, and my first coat of polish went on really well. This last point is really important, some base coats tend to leave bald spots when applying the first coat of polish, the strong bond did not. Bam! This may just become my new favourite base coat. *update: I wore these for three days and they withstood two evenings in the hot tub before they started chipping. This is a great product in my book! I will definitely be using it again.
For this look I used:
Quo by Orly strong bond rubberized base coat
Essence LOL, off to Miami!
Nicole by OPI brilliant idea
Rimmel black satin
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear celeb city
Miracote top coat
I used Pueen stamping plate 26 for the accent nails.
Stay tuned for my next look.
