Monday's Manicure: Tiger Stripes

Currently listening to: Payphone by Maroon 5

 Good morning girls!

Isn't it funny how quickly we fall back into our old routines after being on holiday?  I'm back at work today, joy of joys.  At least I've now had time to unpack and, more importantly, paint my nails ;-)  I had to go for 11 days without changing my manicure while I was away so I'm sure you can imagine the state of my nails and the manicure when I got home yesterday!

 

Anyway, yesterday evening I decided to start swatching my new polishes and the first one I chose was Tangerine by Barry M.


 I'll let you in on a shameful secret: I only bought this polish in order to do this manicure.  Tiger stripes came into my head a few days before I went away and although I was doubtful of finding an appropriate orange polish on the high street, I headed to Superdrug and found the exact shade I was looking for.  I shouldn't have been surprised really, Barry M caters for all tastes.  I would never wear this polish on its own as it doesn't suit me at all but it's ideal for what I had in mind ;-)


 The stripes were courtesy of MUA Shade 2 and Bundle Monster plate BM 223.


What do you think girrrrrls?  Have you ever bought a polish for a particular manicure?

Bye for now,
Laura

  3. That orange is the perfect base for the stripes, but I do think it looks good on you too!
