Grape Nails

Happy Monday!  If there is such a thing (Bank Holiday Mondays I suppose?).  I hope your weeks all got off to a good start :)

I said in my last post that I was off wine tasting with some friends this weekend.  Unfortunately one of my friends couldn't make it in the end, but we still had a lovely time.  And it also meant we ended up rather tiddly because we used her tokens too...  If you're near London and haven't been to Vinopolis yet, you should visit.  You get a little masterclass in how to taste wine properly and then you're let loose to taste whichever wines you fancy.  It's good fun, and we managed to spend four and a half hours in there, so we definitely got our money's worth!

I couldn't really picture how to do wine-themed nails, so I went for some grapes instead!


I used a base of OPI My Vampire Is Buff.  I love this for doing nail art on - it's just that bit softer than using a true white.


I then drew some bunches of grapes with a Sharpie (visit my Facebook page to see how this turned out on my right hand...more spirograph than grapes...).  Then I just blobbed the colours over the tob of the drawings, and viola.

I used Barry M Spring Green for the leafy bits, and OPI Who The Shrek Are You? and Boutique Lay It Out In Lavender for the grapes.  I think this would also look good with foil polish for the grapes?


After wine tasting, we then stuffed our face with pizza/crisps/chocolate etc and watched some Disney films.  All in all, an excellent weekend!  What did you get up to?
