Bridesmaids Nails

Right, I know I know, I've been a terrible blogger...but moving on!

My best friend got married last month :)  She asked me to do bridesmaids nails, so I tried out a few ideas for her.  We were wearing red dresses with white fur shrugs, so we decided to go with red and white, with gold accents, for the nails.

These are the designs I did for her to choose from (and thank you to everyone in various Facebook groups for suggestions!).

All I can say in thankfully she didn't choose the fishtail braid tip!

I didn't think I used that many different polishes, but now that I have to list them all out there are quite a few!  The main red is OPI Flick Chick Cherry, plus Barry M Red Glitter, Gold Foil and Matt White, OPI Minnie Style, China Glaze Pure Joy and Hits Atenas.

These nails were one of the runners up...

She didn't go for those in the end, which is a shame because they would have been dead quick...  I did bring the glitter with me in the hope she'd have a change of heart lol.

These are the ones she chose :)

The glitter is Saffron 02 and I used Konad white stamping polish with one of the MoYou Christmas plates (the one with the gingerbread house on!) for the stamping.  Now, you know I'm not a stamper, and it almost killed me doing 30 nails!  Thank goodness there was champagne!  Quite a few times I tried to stamp and the image just didn't transfer at all - any advice on what I was doing wrong here?  Maybe not drying off all the acetone or something?

Which nails are your favourite?

And I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year!  (Gosh, it really has been a long time since I posted...sorry!)


  1. Wow! Those are beautiful designs!

  2. Thank you very much Anne :)

  3. Wow so cute, I have to admit had I been given the same choice I think I would have gone with the same ones - so so pretty!
    I wish your best friend good luck with her marriage! :D
