I hope you're all having a lovely Tuesday. They're better than Mondays at least.
I have another Born Pretty Store product to show you today. Born Pretty Store sell about a million and one nail art products (don't quote me on that...), amongst which are these little shells.
I don't know what to call them...charms? Studs? Anyway, you get the idea!
Now, I do like to use a stud or gem near the bottom of my nail (I did a post about it here in fact), so I thought that could be a manicure to do with these :) Plus a little glitter gradient. I toyed with using an aqua-ish colour for a nice mermaidy look, but I settled on a light purple in the end.
Now, because I'm a terrible blogger I can't actually tell you what polish this is. Oops! It's either OPI Planks A Lot or You're Such a Budapest. I really should start making notes... The glitter I do know! It's Saffron 07. I think the glitter is too chunky really - the shells are a bit lost amongst it. Does anyone know a good fine silver glitter? Ideally like Barry M Gold Glitter but silver (hopefully I'm not just being stupid and haven't noticed they also do a silver!).
The shells are easy to work with though :) Could pick them up with a dampened toothpick as I normally do with all my studs, stuck on well with topcoat, and although they're a little bit 3D they don't stick out too much from the nail to be a problem.
If you'd like to 'get your shell on', check them out here. They're only £1.63 a pack, and I didn't count how many there were, but suffice to say there's plenty for a fair few manicures.. I've shown you the 3mm ones here, but there's also a 5mm available, and both sizes available in gold. As always, you can use the code LKL91 to get 10% off your order, and shipping is free worldwide.
