Day three of Polish is My Valentine mini-series with the lovely and super talented Phoebe Moon; so far we have completed designs for ‘cute’ and ‘true love’ and today is all about vintage romance. Now if I am honest I ended up not being 100% happy with this mani but I didn’t have time to do a new one so thought I would share it anyway. I really wanted to channel that beautiful vintage floral wall paper from Jane Austen movies – really subdued but romantic and flourish-y.
I started with a base of Barrym Lychee which is a great polish from their gelly line, if you can’t get Barrym there are so many gorgeous nudes out on the market at the moment that you will have no problem finding a suitable base if you wanted to do something similar. I just felt like this gave more of a period look than using a stark white – kind of like old paper. Onto this base which I think was two coats, it may have been one… I stamped some Nails Inc Belgrave Moves which is a gorgeous army green polish with bronze shimmer – a lot like the Rescue Beauty Lounge shade from last year. I used BP-02 (which you may remember from this mani) for the all over lace design on my ring finger, then on my pinky and pointer I used Pueen 23 and then for my second accent on my middle finger Pueen 21 (I took a little bit of the detail off the design to make it an accent). I added a little heart stud to the top for the romance element.
Over the top I sponged a really thin coat of Barrym Caspian Sea for a gold-pink sparkle which really didn’t come out in my photos but looked pretty in real life. You can probably see it best in the top picture.
