Hello Lovely Ladies,
Another gorgeous start to the week. Today I want to show you a manicure that I wore to pick up my Grandma from the airport at the end of April… honestly, it feels like just yesterday that she came to visit, and already -in one week’s time- we will have to say our farewells.
(I will also be announcing the two winners from the Fake Tattoo giveaway at the end of this post)
You may not believe this, but I have been such a good girl when it comes to refraining from purchasing polish; I have been re-visiting some of my favourite shades instead.
In fact, aside from Lush Lacquer’s Clowning Around (still in the mail) and today’s feature polish, I have NOT purchased any other polish this year!!!! *gasp, I know!*
After looong hhhhming and hummmming I finally bit the bullet and bought a bottle of Essie Mint Candy Apple
Mint Candy Apple is a pastel turquoise shade… a tiny bit of minty green, but against my skin-tone it leans more turquoise/baby blue.
This new-to-me Essie polish was the starting point for this skittlette manicure. My pointer finger and thumb were two coats of Barielle One Shade of Gray. I stamped the middle finger with Konad-s6.
I layered two shades on my pinky… the layering was actually a last minute experiment that turned out so well that I will NEED to revisit this pairing again.
This is two coats of NOPI Luke of the Draw and Cirque XX… honestly, EVERYONE and their neighbour needs to own a bottle of XX (everyone!!!)
Now, without further ado, here are the two lucky winners in the Fake Tattoos contest (winners were randomly chosen by a WordPress plugin):
Congratulations Jennifer A and Precious Pearl!!! Thank you to everyone who took part in this mini-giveaway.
The winners have already been notified via email.
