What better nail polish to wear in all this summery weather then any polish from the Models Own For Tans range! I couldn’t just pick one though, of course!
It’s so exciting finding out about a baby, but then having to wait a certain amount of time before announcing it. It feels like I’ve known about this pregnancy forever and have been dying to do these nails. I should probably clarify that it isn’t my baby, it’s my sister-in-law’s. Babies actually terrify me, but when it’s my niece or nephew I adore them, and I can’t wait for a new addition to the family. The funnest baby game is always….boy or girl?
When I first started writing blogs I found myself doing a lot of Disney nails, so I decided to tone down the Disney and focus more on other nail art. Well some of my family are coming back from Disney World in Florida and I realised that I had tried so hard to do less that I ended up not doing any for a really long time. So today’s nails are inspired by Peter Pan.
So sometimes when trying things for the first time there can be a lot of trial and error, it’s not always bad though. Today I tried a blobicure manicure, which is basically letting your wet polish spread on your nail into a mosaic looking effect. The first nail I used it on I accidentally dropped on too much polish, as I knew I was just going to remove it I decided to just swirl it around first. Well I fell in love with how that looked and recreated it on the rest of my nails!
I love these chrome polishes from Model’s Own, and I found that last time I used them if you keep brushing the polish it comes off in a way that I quite liked. Almost like the distressed technique, I used Models Own Rose Chrome, and it had an old penny feeling.
Neon nail polish is amazing I love wearing it, super shiny bright nails, but neon polish is also amazing when it’s matte! That’s what I’ve done today, and with a good white base that helps the colour pop.
Start dusting off your neon polishes, and start remember what the sun feels like on your face because summer is coming! Models own released nail polishes last year that look good and compliment your tan, well when you don’t have a tan it’s just neon polish. Today I’m wearing Shades and Flip Flops together, in a vertical gradient.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a fan manicure, today I used a glitter to sweep across my nails which is new for me. I also love the name of my base colour, Dark side of the Moon, a super deep grey by OPI.
I’ve seen a lot of these reverse gradients going around the nail blogs lately, they confuse the eye as you can’t quite work out what is going on!
I am still in love with Models Own Chrome collection, and today I’ve used them for what all metallic nail polish is good for, stamping!
