Back to school blues….

…only its worse, because it’s actually back to work blues. I think the worst time to go back is after Christmas when you’ve had such a good time. I blame the work blues for the fact that I painted my nails then didn’t really like them, so I removed them and tried something different. But I ended up preferring them before, at least now I have tomorrow’s post done and dusted, that is unless I change my mind again Here’s what I’m calling Chevron Maroon Moons.

I got the chevron stencils really cheap from eBay, they are like sticky labels that make it so easy to create neat lines of polish. Stick ’em on, paint over them, then remove. It feels like cheating, surely nail art is supposed to be difficult. I know a lot of people do this freehand and that’s amazing, I guess it just takes practice.

I never used to be the biggest fan of Models Own nail polish as I have a lot of colours and they didn’t stand out. Recently they must have really stepped up their game and I’ve noticed. The diamond luxe collection they released has a subtle amount of glitter mixed in that makes the polish seem to glow.

I sometimes do negative space manicures just to show that wearing nail polish everyday doesn’t mean your nails will be stained, use a good base coat and you’re good to expose your natural self.
