This week the DD are doing Pinterest. As you know, I am cutting back on my blogging, but I will still be committed to the DD, and somehow I've managed to do 5 manis for this week.
I have an extensive selection of pinterest boards devoted to manis and patterns. My only criteria for this week was that I didn't want to do recreate other people's manis, so I turned my attention to patterns that I had pinned.
I must admit, I'm a bit of a pattern hoarder, mostly I think because I am more of a nail patternist than a nail artist. I've had this pattern pinned for a while, and used it as an excuse to use my new Love Angeline polishes.
The Love Angeline collection is a fabulous assortment of mattes, and I used Brandy, Champage, Red Wine and Bourbon, all dabbed on to intermingle. I added a thin wipe of Literary Lacquers Mirror of Galadriel to add a little sparkle, and then stamped with UberChic Out of Africa 01.
Halfway through this mani, I was worried. I just couldn't get the colours in the right balance, but the stamping really pulled the whole thing together. The Love Angeline polishes were brilliant too and I can't wait to use more.
