Evening poppets & Happy Friday! Oooo I’m happy to see it, that’s for sure. Let’s just say it’s been an odd kinda week (though I do seem to get a lot of those….) I mean, I even managed to get lost in my OWN town the other day….says it all really doesn’t it?? *side eye* Oh well, moving on, highlight this week definitely goes to that glorious day of the month we like to call PAY DAY of who’s arrival I literally counted down the days, hours, minutes, nay seconds & welcomed with open arms ;) A bit o’ cheeky yet very necessary hauling has been done this month I’ll admit, but nothing too drastic mind you, plus had to pay off a few bills also, the joys of being a grown up (though that status is debatable… ;p) Have some lovely new bits though that I can’t wait to share you lovelies….there is some sparkle involved ;)
So lately I’d been seeing lots of pics of the absolutely awesome “Tuxedo” style nails that Zooey Deschanel wore as her mani to the Golden Globes this year, I absolutely fell in love with the design, thought it was just brilliant & really wanted to give them a whirl!
When you think of Tuxedo’s the colours that come to mind are of course black & white but sadly & quite shockingly for this here nail polish addict…I don’t actually have a white nail polish in my collection! :-/ Oooops! That’s something that clearly needs rectifying ASAP, not just that but I STILL need to purchase me a proper nail art pen. But lacking those tools didn’t stop me from whacking a man’s suit on my nails, call for a bit o’ improvisation using instead “Coconut Ice” a beautiful pearly polish from No 7, a few black nail art beads & of course my trusty & ever resourceful liquid eye liner, here’s my first attempt at Tuxedo nails :)
What do you think? Not too bad for a first go? The bows & tips were a bit scruffier than I would’ve liked & definitely need working on but with a bit o’ practice I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it as I’m gonna be wanting to try this design again! After using a basecoat, I applied two coats of the Coconut Ice, sticking on the black button beads with an orange stick whilst the second coat was still wet. Once that had dried I then attempted my bows & black tips using the eyeliner, finishing it all off with a slick of topcoat to seal! Finito!
Looking at it again I think I actually prefer the use of the pearly polish rather than a matte white, gives it a bit more of a pow factor if ya like! Haha! ;) And maybe I WILL just stop dawdling & get a nail art pen in my life, just to see if it makes things easier but until then I still have big love for my eyeliner! Same can definitely be said for this mani design, received lots of lovely comments on it this week which always means so much & makes my day! :D So will be giving Tuxedo's a go again for sure!
Hope you like! Have you tried Tuxedo nails? Let me know, would love to see! Thanks for stopping by, till next time lovelies!
Lotsa love to ya!
