Friday's Fingers

Currently listening to: Sunday Morning by Maroon 5
Good morning lovely ladies!

Today I'd like to show you a manicure featuring these two polishes:


Nails Inc Victoria and Barry M Gold Foil


I used two coats of Victoria to start with.  I really like this colour but trying to place the second coat of polish exactly over the first coat is too difficult for me.  One coat of this polish produces a blood red colour while two coats produces a much darker, almost brown shade.  My lack of polishing skills means I end up with red patches of polish towards my cuticles where I haven't been able to apply a second coat.


 I then stamped using Gold Foil and Born Pretty Store image plate m79, one of my favourites as I'm sure you know.


To finish, I then stamped a bow on my accent nails using BPS image plate m59.

What do you think girls?  Do you ever have trouble making the colour on your nails even?

Bye for now,
Laura

  3. This looks so good! And, I know exactly what you mean about the colours. One coat isn't quite the shade I want, and then when I do another it's gone too dark. Frustrating...

    1. I would really recommend the born pretty store one since it has not one but two bows :-)
