This week on the facebook group the theme is ugly polishes and I actually couldn’t find the lilac pearl disaster that I think is ugly so I decided to take the uniquely beautiful Nails Inc Battersea Power Station (which seems to fall into the unpopular brown/mustard ugly category) and use it in one of my favourite nail art designs.
Now I really like this polish, it is definitely not going to work on all skin tones but I think it’s a great colour for autumn and works well paired with a lot of the jewel toned polishes. For a lighter look I used it as accent squares over Barrym Lychee and paired with Nails Inc The Serpentine. There is something retro about these nails which I like and once the base colour is dry and striping tape (three pieces for each nail) is laid it’s pretty quick and simple to do. I have done this exact mani before HERE in another collection of colours so it didn’t take too much brain power for me on a busy Wednesday afternoon to work out which squares to colour in what colour. This design would work with more colours, smaller squares, more squares – it’s really good fun. Just make sure you have the bare minimum of polish on your brush so you can control where it goes.
Apologies for the scrappy clean up but the beloved clean up brush remains in absentia and the new ones I ordered haven’t arrived yet. I will be doing a nail art give away soon which includes one of these clean up brushes to keep an eye out for that!! What’s your favourite “ugly” polish? What do you think of Battersea Power Station? Let me know with a comment below. I hope you’re all having a fandabbydosey week!
