Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? Thank you for all the lovely birthday messages! I had a really lovely day, starting with my family in the morning and having my 4 year old Niece there before she had to go to pre-school. I was incredibly spoilt with lots of new nail polishes that I can't wait to try and Mr Bravo and I had a nice meal out at a restaurant, then later on we watched some of our favourite shows together. I promised you some extreme nail art... Now. This is not something I would wear, its entirely impractical and was a real nuisance to do anything once it was on... But I had to try it!
|I warned you it would be over the top!|
For my index and pinky finger I began with two coats of Barry M's 'Gold Foil' and once dried I applied Barry M's 'copacabana' in a ruffian style which was not 'red enough' for my desired look so I layered W7's 'Red Dazzle'. Once everything was dried I took a small brush and applied some base coat and sprinkled some gold glitter on top of Gold Foil. For my remaining nails I used a beauty glue to add some trimmed down decorations for wrapping and made some little gift tags.
As I mentioned I wouldn't 'wear' this but it was a fun experiment. I wish I had some small items to use but I did the best I could, I think if you used really small pieces it could actually be doable.
What do you think of this extreme and over the top manicure? Have you tried a 3D Christmas manicure?
Have a great day!
