So long sweet summer…


Originally posted on Penny Pinching Polish 


When Sarah and her memory card had a falling out I couldn’t help but feel her pain – there is nothing worse than losing pictures of a mani you have spent so much time and love on. Luckily I had a naked hand and some time so I offered to do a guest post for you today. Whenever I think of this blog I think of bright colours and as nail world seems to be winding down towards autumn I am anxious to cram in some final summer manis. I am a massive lover of “fall” shades but have been embracing the bright and bold this summer.



For this mani I started by painting a base of Barrym Matt White on my ring finger and then one coat of colour on each of my other fingers:

Pinkie: Bondi The Limelight

Middle: Zoya Thandie

Index: OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian

Thumb: OPI I Just Can’t Cope-a-canbana

Once my base of white was dry I sponged on a lose gradient of the OPI and the Bondi and blended the colours together using topcoat. I took my inspiration from brightly coloured parakeets and lovebirds.

Lovebirds3I added the lovebirds using Konad Special Black Polish and Moyou Tropical 06. All of these colours needed 2 coats and Zoya Thandie could probably do with three for complete coverage if you use thin coats. Everything got a lovely layer of HK Girl Topcoat for extra shine. Pretty straight forward manicure but I just love these cocktail colours and hope you do too. Please come and see what I am up to over on Pocket Money Polishes – there is almost always some kind of manicure mischief to be found.
