I’ve got it all going on today!
I went with a nice base of BarryM Cyan Blue and whilst watching an old episode of Castle just kind of made things up as I went along. I stamped my stamped my middle finger with the stars motif from BM-21 and my thumb in a diamond check patter from BM-203 both in Natural Collection White. Then to my index and pinky finger I added a coat of Maybeline Color Shot Polka Dots Chalk Dust (phew that’s a long name) which is a fab black and white glitter in various sizes.
Once all this was done and I was 100% sure the Cyan Blue was dry I added two strips of striping tape and a healthy layer of Natural Collection White; to make sure that I had clean lines I removed the tape as quickly as possible with tweezers. I probably should have taken a picture at this point but I was busy wondering if they were going to solve the murder so it slipped my mind (shouting “THE WIFE DID IT” didn’t seem to help them along at all).
I added three pale blue gems with a little bit of topcoat and a manicure stick (the pointy end, very dangerous if not used with care) and then to the left and the right I added some more Chalk Dust to create a black speckled effect and tie it all together. I always found that Cyan Blue just didn’t look quite right with my skin tone in the past but in this combination I quite like it. Now, everyone cross your fingers for no staining!
I am going to have a really busy weekend sorting out the polish launch and I hope you will stop by on Monday for a browse! I will try and keep you up to date with the details and there is possibly going to be a special offer appearing on my facebook page so keep an eye out for that! The lovely Claire from Nuthin’ But A Nail Thing will be offering her opinions on the entire collection on Saturday – so it will be worth stopping by her blog if you want the full low-down! She’s always got some amazing swatches and art going on – serious blog crush really (might change my mind when I read her review though… hmm.. 😛 ). Have a cracking Friday and I will see you on Monday for the start of another great week.
