Given the circumstances of the guest post, I thought it would be nice to do a weddingy manicure! What with my wedding coming up (although this was a good year ago!) I thought it would be nice to try out a potential wedding manicure for myself. We’re having a beach theme, and sort of peachy-corally (okay, they're orange) bridesmaids. So I whipped out my Barry M Peach Melba and every nail polish I own that could be considered shell-coloured, and started creating my masterpiece. Er...unfortunately, it didn’t quite turn out as I’d envisioned, so out came the nail polish remover and I turned to good old Google for some inspiration.
I found this lovely picture:
I don’t quite have the skills to recreate that on my nails, so here’s what I came up with instead:
I used Barry M Matt White for my base. For the tree trunk I used Barry M Bright Purple, and for all the dots and details I used Barry M Guava, Nails Inc Grosvenor Street and Knightsbridge Green, Max Factor Cactus Green and Bright Orange, and Rimmel Sunshine. There’s a little bit of green Sharpie thrown into the grass as well, just for good measure.
For my thumb, I picked out a few of the details from the original image.
