This Week’s Nails is all about polka-dots!
Polka-dots were featured a lot in London, Paris, New York and Milan Fashion Weeks, with Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs and David Koma, including this spotty print into their Autumn/Winter 2011 collections.
So when it came to This Week’s Nails, I had to incorporate this big trend into my ‘nail art’.
I chose a deep, dark red for the base colour and ‘dotted’ my nails with Luscious white nail varnish using the blunt end of a cocktail stick.
Here is the nail varnish I used to achieve my look:
Similar to the last nails post, I used Superdrug’s 2 in 1 Top Coat & Nail Hardener as my base and top coat. I then applied two coats of the Nails Inc. polish. I have to say, I love the colour! Dark red is one of my favourite colours and I didn’t have this colour in my nail varnish collection, so thanks Glamour for the freebie!
Here is the finished look of the nails:
As you can see I went for ‘big polka-dots’, and tried to cover my nails in them, rather than just having two or three. The Nails Inc. varnish had an average drying time, and I am pleased with how they turned out.
However, when I went wrong with one of the nails, the polish left a pink stain and despite using numerous amounts of nail varnish remover and cotton balls to remove the ‘pink stain’, it was still visible. This may be due to my nail varnish remover (which is Cutex by the way), or to the nail polish itself. I will have to wait and see what the state of my nails is in when I take it off, but for now, I love them!
That’s all for This Week’s Nails, look out for next week’s post on them!
