Hey there my lovely readers!
So May is upon us! And with it the return of 5 day working weeks...*wails in despair* I confess one of the many reasons I love Spring time (though its obvious that Spring is clearly broken at the moment) is the abundance of bank holidays, oh how we've been spoilt with these glorious long weekends.
Not the greatest start to the month with yours truly having a wisdom tooth extraction which I elected to have under local anesthetic because I'm either mental or a masochist. Most likely a bit of both. So one is currently on a cocktail of painkillers & anti-inflammatory's that could knock an elephant on its ass. Happy Days *cue creepy drug induced grin*
Powering on, today I have another deliciously delightful nail polish offering from True Brit London's newly released collection, pink ladies this is one for you...
What did I tell you? Swoon worthy right? This beautiful polish goes by the title *Sunday Best & is a stunning glossy fuchsia peony pink that gets its glorious edge with the addition of an opalescent pearly shimmer giving this pink a magical iridescent glow.
The formula of Sunday Best is gorgeous as well, so pigmented you could get away with one coat but I always opt for two for true opacity.
The finish you are left with is a super satisfying smooth & shiny gloss, unghghghgn so dreamy...sorry, I would blame the drugs but you know I just go doolally over pretty polish
I said before in my previous post that Seaside may be my favourite new shade so far but it definitely has some serious competition with this bad boy...
As always I couldn't resist dabbling in a spot of nail art with this pretty shade & as this polish goes by the name Sunday Best I thought why not add on some smart white bow ties!
My friend informed me that these actually reminded her of Hello Kitty...not my original intention but hey I'll roll with that! Who doesn't adore a spot of kawaii Hello Kitty?
And creating bow ties is super easy to, to show you how I've done a quick step by step pictorial for you...
Start with applying a single white dot in the centre of your nail using a dotting tool and white polish
Then using a thin nail art brush with the white polish, add an angled line on either side of the dot going upwards
With the same brush & more polish add two more angled lines, these two going downwards so that it looks like a cross almost
Then using more white polish fill in the both sides of your bow tie.
Now using some black polish, outline the centre knot and the edges of your bow tie to really make it stand out
And then for a final detail add on two smaller black lines either side of your centre knot and thats it!
Top it all with topcoat and you have your smart bow tie/Hello Kitty nails!
Sunday Best & other beautiful True Brit London polishes retail for £12.50 and can be found online.
Thanks as always for reading my lovelies! I'm off to swig from my bottle of Calpol, catch you next time!
Lotsa love to ya!
