Ferrero Rocher

I love these nails.  I don't even care if I'm blowing my own trumpet - they are epic.

My boyfriend bought me one of the cone-shaped Ferrero Rocher things for Christmas.  I don't know how many were in it, and I'm glad, because if I did know I probably wouldn't be feeling too good about myself right now lol.  Anyhoo, as I was stuffing another chocolate in my mouth yesterday, I was struck by an idea - a Ferrero Rocher manicure!

I used OPI Over The Taupe for all the brown bits, and Barry M Gold Foil for the lines.  I should've used tape for my lines really, but it's such a faff...


I used some of the gold foil I received from Born Pretty Store for the ring finger accent, with a coat of matte top coat over it.  I wonder if anyone can tell what I used for my thumb...?

And here's a closer look at the accent nails!

    1. It is indeed lol, although I have to admit that wasn't my idea! I couldn't think of anything other than chopped nuts that would look like chopped nuts. Thanks!

    1. The first time I used Over The Taupe my first thought was that it looked like melted chocolate. Yum yum. Thanks Elizabeth :)

    1. Oh no! The only problem is that a new healthier me is never gonna happen... You always think 'the new year! That's when I'll stop eating and drinking so much!' but then you get chocolate and alcohol for Christmas lol. Oh well, I'm happy!

    1. I had to take it off the same night because of work. The 'nuts' were catching on things though, but with a topcoat it probably would've lasted fine :)
