I fancied a delicate, pastel manicure today. For the base colour I used 2 coats of Nails Inc Oxford, which I've used before for my frosted snowflakes manicure. I love nails inc pastel colours, they're so easy to apply.
I then applied a lilac acrylic paint using a fan brush and handpainted some little swirls and a heart. It's all finished off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri.
I have actually used PVA glue as a base for this manicure. I've heard it's easy to remove and saves damaging nails with nail polish remover. I'll let you know how it goes :)
UPDATE: I bought the Rimmel Matte topcoat a few weeks ago and decided to try it over this manicure. Oh am I glad I did! It's totally transformed it. I love it!! and my nails have a satin feel to them now!
