Oh goddesses, goddesses, goddesses, this post is soooooo late. This was due to be my post last Friday, at which point I had been battling a sinus infection for a week. Finally armed with anti-biotics, I went to bed, determined to post over the weekend, only to not actually manage to get out of bed all weekend. I've been back at work this week but soooo low on energy. In fact, it's a whole week since I even sat at my laptop (oh yeh, AND I have bare nails - eeeek!).
Which is a shame because I LOVE THIS MANI !!!! This is one of my favourites that I've ever done and I loved wearing it.
So, what we got? Well, this week's (last week's) 40 Great Nail Art Ideas theme was 3 shades of purple - obviously, that's always going to be a good idea - and my prompt was decals. I decided to only decal 2 nails and I'm glad I did - it saved time, but also gave the mani room to breathe.
I deliberately picked 3 "living" purples - colours that have extra life and shift to them. So on the thumb we have Lorelei from Powder Perfect, a stunning flecked lilac. On index we have Protect Your Girly Bits, a stunning purple holo twinkling with copper lights. And finally on pinkie we have one of my all time faves - OPI Planks A Lot.
My stroke of genius was to apply my decals to a silver background. It was unusual, and really made the whole mani pop. I used the super sparkly Stinky Little Truck from Literary Lacquers and this gorgeous flower image from UberChic 5-02.
Ta-dah! Super happy Crumpet :)
