When I am blue… my nails are too! ;)
I always prefer soft pastel like colours on my nails for spring. It just gives this fresh and reborn feeling for some reason ;) For today’s nail post I wanted to make a pastel yellow/nude base and drown my nails into big gems, some pearls and rhinestones. I actually nuked the rhinestones while adding them to a wet gel polish topcoat, to make them stay put even longer.
I really love to wear gorgeous gradient/ombre nails. And with a little makeup sponge they are so easy to make!
A little while ago I went through some of my polishes and came across my pretty beetle juice collection ones by models own. I just had to put some on my nails :D
Since we went on our almost 2 week long holiday to the USA, I had to make sure my mani lasted as long as possible. So I chose to do a simple glitter gradient design on top of a white polish. Pretty, classic but always easy to match with your daily looks.
I do have to say that on top of this mani, I added a gel topcoat which I had to nuke in a led lamp. This would make it last a lot longer… at leas that was what I hoped. After a day or 3 it already started chipping for some reason! With normal polish and just a simple Catrice topcoat my mani lasts me at least a full week without chipping or tipwear. So that kinda sucked!
Eventhough it didn’t last me as long as I had hoped for, it still looks really pretty ;)
