Minimal Effort, Freehand Speed Painted Nails.

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? Just a quick post from me as today is our last day in England – boo. Mr Bravo and I will be travelling back to Holland tomorrow and I think we're both quite bummed about how fast the three weeks has gone. Today is going to be very busy for us, spending time with family and starting to pack up and tonight a Greek take away with my family. I had a few minutes this morning (My sleeping pattern is so good now that I forgot the weekends should be for lie-ins!) to create this manicure which is probably the fastest one I've ever done – that explains the roughness to it, don't kill me for the wonky line work. Another reason I wanted to post today was to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who follow me, this morning I logged into facebook and saw I reached 2,000 likes and I am so grateful! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week.



Quick, quick! Type fast little fingers! For this manicure I started off with two coats of Astra Cosmetic's '#41 Violet' and followed with OPI's 'Matte top coat'. I then used a mixture of three acrylics to create some straight and diagonal lines and filled a few of them in. I completed by added another layer of matte top coat and added some dots using Barry M's 'Silver Foil'.

What do you think of this manicure? Do you like to play with lined patterns?

I'm off to make the most of today, I hope you all have a fabulous, glitter filled weekend!
See you all next week.

Love
Ithi

    1. Thank you so much, Bubica! Yes I do miss doing matte's sometimes, luckily I got a new matte top coat which is really nice, the last one I had left weird white patches which I couldn't stand! xx

    1. Surprisingly yes, I found the straight (well... straight-ish) lines quite fast as I used to paint a lot of abstract art - maybe that helped somewhere! I have really enjoyed seeing your nail art lately, you are doing a lot of beautiful designs :) xx
