Today I have my birthday manicure to show you :D I turned 27 on Saturday and I've had such a lovely weekend! It was sooo freezing the day before but the sun has been shining the past two days, very lucky!! I decided to do a coral coloured manicure to match my dress I was wearing for my birthday drinks. I used the beautiful Nails Inc Wellington Square. I used 3 thin coats for perfect coverage. This is a beautiful peachy colour! I then painted on orange roses. They look red in the photos but they do look more of an orange colour in person. I used gold acrylic paint for the leaves.
I then decided to use some studs on my ring finger. I don't actually own any gold studs, but I remember the wonderful Tamit24 mentioning painting hers so I painted some silver and black ones from kkcenterhk.com. The bottom two photos show how I did this. I simply applied a quick dry base coat to a plastic sheet and used a cocktail stick to line up the studs on the sheet. I then painted them all with Barry M Gold Foil paint and peeled them off when dry. I used 3mm studs, 2mm studs and 1.5mm studs. I will be using these in their original colour in a future post :)
What do you think? I hope you aren't bored of roses!! you can see the dress below that I wore out for my birthday too, as you can see I'm a huge fan of roses, hehe :)
p.s. I had a total disaster with my ring finger and sliced half of the free edge off with my razor in the shower :( so please excuse the uneven nails.
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
