NOTD - Asian Print Inspired Nails with Deborah Lippmann Stop & Stare!

Hello there lovely readers!

Spending the day getting some much needed rest after yesterday as it was the night of my darling friend Ayshe's wedding celebrations who looked, it goes without saying, absolutely incredible & I was so over the moon to celebrate her big day with her. Though I think I may have over exerted myself a wee bit, I fear my days of dancing till the sun comes up are behind me! o_O

I decided to dig out one of my favourite red Asian outfits for the celebrations last night & naturally needed some suitable wedding nails to go with. I was feeling in the mood for some nail art so using my outfit for inspiration, created these Asian print design nails using the beautiful Deborah Lippmann's Stop & Stare.

I managed to grab this Lippmann in a pack of 3 from TK Maxx for a bargainous £8 which, seeing as these polishes retail for £18 a pop, was an absolute steal! Now even to me £18 is a hell of a lot for a polish, it would have to be pretty incredible & I have to say Stop & Stare really is a gorgeous polish, not only is it a beautiful red jelly, but the formula is just brilliant. So easy to apply, drying time was super quick & the finish was gorgeous! Still on the bench as to whether I'd fork out £18...but there is no doubt it is a quality polish!

Here I've applied 3 coats Stop and Stare to get an opaque finish as it is a surprisingly sheer yet glossy jelly. No matter though as each coat applied so well. Also photgraphing red is an absolute pain! Stop & Stare is a lovely bright cherry red. Once dry I then reached for my nail art pens. I started off with my Barry M pen in Black to create the curved design on the side of the nail.

Next using my Models Own nail art pen in Gold I applied some dots along the edge of the design following the pattern. I still felt it needed something more so I added a pretty green stone to each nail as well.

Finishing with a nice thick coat of topcoat & wedding mani done! Hope you liked the nails my lovelies! Thanks as always for reading & enjoy the rest of your weekends!

Lotsa love to ya!
