I seriously lost mine this weekend, I did my nails about six times and NOTHING was working out. I think I was just trying too hard to do something I thought other people would like (so I could blog it) and not just doing what I wanted. So after a break I went to my drawer and gabbed OPI Nein Nein Nein, Ok Fine a lovely grey with slight teal/green in the base – a perfect palette cleanser and softer alternative to black. I used two coats for full opacity, you might be able to get away with one if you do thick coats. Once that was applied I had a spark of inspiration to add some glistening “faffage” to my mani in the form of the beautiful A England Fonteyn. Fonteyn is from the latest collection inspired by legendary prima ballerina Margot Fonteyn and I bought it pretty soon after release paying full price because it is so beautiful. Normally I am a bargain hunter but I cannot quibble with the service or the product from A England especially if you’re in the market for a very special treat. .
I have recently sorted through my stamping plates – sending some to a loving new home and ordering a few more from MoYou London (can’t wait for nail mail next week, so exciting!). I grabbed one of my Bundle Monster plates (208) and noticed a great mosaic/cracked design (the inverse of this design is also on the plate which is quite cool) and got to work adding it across all my fingers – no accents today. The A England stamped perfectly and the design reminds me of spiders webs as they glisten in the light or maybe like an inverse shattered mirror? What do you think?
In sad news my good clean up brush continues to be MIA so I ended up having to very carefully use cotton buds for clean up last night which are not ideal but just about worked. Don’t forget you can click on any of the images on the blog to see larger versions in all their macro glory. Everything is topped in HK Girl Topcoat which if you’re in the UK you can buy from Rainbow Connection and I could not recommend more at this point.
So what do you think? What do you do when you lose your mojo? Are you a mani planner or do you just go with whatever takes your fancy? I think from now on I am just going to do what I fancy and try not to over think things! Bumper week for you this week with amazing guest posts, the next instalment of the AtoZ series and muchos more. I hope you all had a great Easter and didn’t eat too much chocolate.
