A quick explanation. I did the manicure at the bottom of this post first but didn’t like how it came out (need more sponging practice I think!) so did another raimbow themed mani. I attached both as it’s all experience, right?
Today’s challenge is ‘metallic’. I’m not the biggest fan of metallics as I think they look a bit teenage-y so I knew that I wanted to do something that wasn’t a simple mani.
I put on two coats of a Miss Sporty gold (I think it’s just called 312…we’ve spoken before about my hatred of polishes with no names, I won’t go into it again!). It was looking very 80s and not in a good way, so I added the GOSH matte coat.
After this had dried, I simply added the black tips (using L.A. Colours ‘Circuits’).
I tried to take the photos in different lights to show the effect of this mani. I really love the contrast between the matte gold and the super-shiny black polish.
Tomorrow’s theme is ‘Rainbow’ which doesn’t leave many options for doing something different, but should at least be colourful!
I missed a day! Which is quite poor seeing as it hasn’t even been a week yet. But! I have an excuse. I had a job interview yesterday and my wonderful boyfriend made a surprise trip to London so that he could meet me afterwards and take me for food and obscenely expensive cocktails. I also got the job! Whoop!
So, yes, apologies, but I have done two manicures today to make up for missing yesterday. I know, I know, I spoil you!! 😐
The theme for day five of the challenge was blue. I only own one blue, as I’m not a huge fan of the colour in general. I used a Miss Sporty creme navy, which I love as it dries super quickly which was helpful with this mani. I did two coats of the blue polish and then added the GOSH matte top coat.
I then cut out triangles of tape, covered one side of the nail, and painted another layer of the same polish over the top.
I love the way this mani looks, it really catches the eye. Excuse the lack of clean-up, I was trying to take photos before it got dark so was rushed!
