I hope you have lots of good things planned for the weekend. Mine mainly involves watching a load of stuff I've recorded on Sky+ - Doctor Who and The Following. Is anyone er "following" The Following ? I've heard loads of good things about it, so I'm quite excited.
Today's mani - sad face. Actually, that's not right. Today's mani is awesome, but the photos are not. I'm sitting staring at it right now, and I love it so much I don't want to take it off, but for some reason my camera just could not deal with it.
This is a gradient involving 2 Nails Incs. The paler colour is Royal Botanical Gardens. It's one of their newest shades and it's a deliciously icy but intense minty green. It was also very nearly opaque in one coat.
The darker polish is one of their older ones, Reeves Mews, a jade-teal type colour that I don't wear very often. Look at the bottle shot - it's DARK. Look at the photos - WTF ???
As a gradient, this pair looked amazing, but weirdly, they also looked like the sea merging into the sky .. yes, despite being green. Weird, but good weird.
I then dotted over them. I don't yet have an awesome cream, so I mixed OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls with some Barry M Lychee.
Overall, this has got a really vintage feel - total accident, not planned. It looks like something Cath Kidston would create, if she ever did nail wraps!
So, look at the photos, imagine the green a LOT darker, and presto, we're on the same page. How annoying :/
Lots of xxx
