Mani Monday #2

Hi guys! Today for Mani Monday I am throwing it back to a manicure that I did last summer and loved. I’m currently testing out a nail product that I will be featuring in an upcoming Mani Monday so I had to rely on an oldie.

This manicure is a nice solid blue with a pink floral and polka dot accent. I love any manicure that involves polka dots as they are so simple to do, but depending on what you do with them, look impressive. Even the flowers are made of dots. I always use a set of dotting tools to do my polka dots, but you could also use a bobby pin if you do not have a set.This is the set that I use.

For this manicure I used:

OPI Chip Skip
OPI Nail Envy Maintenance (1 coat)
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Pacific Blue (the original formula)
OPI Live.Love.Carnival (flowers and polka dots)
OPI Banana Bandanna (centre of flowers)
Cult Nails Wicked Fast Top Coat (since Cult Nails is no longer is in business, Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying & Super Shiny Top Coat is a great alternative)

The original Pacific Blue from Sally Hansen is gorgeous. It didn’t have the best wear-time but it was easy to apply. It’s a shame they changed the formula. If you can get your hands on the original, it is worth picking up!

Mani Monday #1

Hi guys! I’m going to try to start a Monday series where I feature my current manicure. In these posts I might experiment with nail art, or it may just be a plain colour that I’m really loving.

Today I’ve done a bit of a mix and match manicure where I’ve included some solid colour, some glitter (because everything needs glitter.) and a chevron accent. This isn’t my best work, the chevron stencil stickers that I have were being a bit difficult. I wish I remembered where I got the chevron stickers but at the moment I am drawing a blank.
