Hello everyone. I'm back from my holiday now, I got back the early hours of Wednesday morning. It was lovely to have a week away but it went way too fast!
Today I have a rather unseasonal design to show you, I did this a few days before I went on holiday so I was feeling a bit summery. I had also recently bought some seashell studs from She Sells Seashells and was dying to use them.
I started with a white base and then added a coat of piCture pOlish - Majesty over this. This gave it a nice subtle little shimmer, but it doesn't really come across in my photos too well.
I then did the waterspotting technique using Sally Hansen - Fairy Teal. This took me quite a few goes to get right, but I got there in the end! I think most people do it using a spray but I used this technique here.
I then added the studs on with my topcoat, however as my nails are very curved they didn't sit flat so didn't last very long. In future if I wanted to keep them on for more than a day I would use nail glue. But these still might be my favourite studs ever, soo pretty!
This design came out completely different to how I imagined it in my head, I think my waterspotting skills may just need a bit of refining. But still it's not too bad for a first attempt. It definitely reminds me of the sea though which is what I was going for.
What do you guys think?
Thanks for stopping by.
