I am absolutely losing my mind being stuck at home recovering from surgery. And so, to celebrate being able to sit up without wanting to cry, I decided to do some nail art. I did some watermelon nail art HERE so I stuck with the fruit theme for these cute pop art nail art bananas.
Multicoloured Gradient Nail Art
These aren’t my best gradients but in my defence I was going to do something over the top so they didn’t need to be too perfect. However, I ran out of time and patience with them and decided they would be fine as they were! #nailbloggerproblems
These were done with Barry M pastel nail varnishes and are topped with two coats of Essie ‘Good To Go’ (Still not liking it as much as Seche Vite by the way…)
I’ve done a tutorial here for how to do gradients, this is the same principle but with 4 colours instead of 2.
I might actually update these tomorrow and post some pictures as I’m still not too enamoured with them…
Kiko 372 Nude Nail Varnish
This is another of the polishes I got in the Kiko sale in France (2.50 Euro per polish… it would’ve been rude not to take advantage of that so I got loads!)
Kiko 372 Nude nail varnish is a creamy blush coloured polish with more than a hint of grey (and regular readers will know how I feel about grey!) I really like this barely-there polish, it is so classy without being boring and will go with absolutely any outfit.
This nail varnish needed 2 fairly thick coats to get full coverage, but Kiko polishes always apply and dry very well so that wasn’t a problem. This is shown topped with Seche Vite.
You can get Kiko polishes HERE.
OPI Lights Of Emerald City
This beautiful beast is one of my recent birthday polishes and I absolutely adore it – it is like nothing else I own (which is pretty hard work with so many polishes!)
A england Dragon Review
Another polish from the beautiful a-england ‘The Legend’ collection. This one is a glorious emerald green that, depending on the light, has a blue or gold tint and a true holographic shimmer running through it. This is one of those polishes that just has you staring at your nails all day.
Just like the other polishes in this collection, this could have been a one-coater but I am a creature of habit and did two coats anyway. It was then topped with Seche Vite, although it’s super shiny and sparkley without.
‘The Legend’ collection is sadly no longer available, but you can get Adina’s stunning nail polishes HERE.
