Monday's Manicure ft Models Own Floral NOTD

Currently watching: The Dark Knight

Good morning girls!

For my birthday, I was given my first Models Own polish, Purple Blue, and although I haven't tried it yet, that polish made me more curious about the brand, so much so that last week I bought Mystic Mauve, a pink foil.


The polish applied really easily, giving me no cause for complaint.


 I also really loved the shade (suitable for work and play, always a bonus) but of course that didn't mean I could leave it alone.


 Instead, I stamped a hibiscus flower on each nail using Barry M Silver Foil and Bundle Monster plate BM 313.  The flowers weren't as defined as I would have liked so I added a dot to the centre of each flower using another new polish, Purple Flash by H&M.


 I pondered about sponging silver glitter on to my tips but in the end I decided to freehand tips using Purple Flash.


When looking at the end result, I still felt there was something missing, so I sponged some glitter on using a Saffron London polish in shade 5.  Then I was happy :-)

What do you think girls?  Which stage is your favourite?

Bye for now,
Laura

    1. Aw thank you. But I think you have way more brands in the US that we miss out on here in the UK than the other way round ;-)
