These nails I'm posting today are actually for a few weeks back. My partner and I recently purchased a house and we got the keys last Friday so I have spent a week gardening and cleaning like a maniac. Digging in the dirt and scrubbing for hours with bleach isn't great for nail health and nail polish so I haven't done any nice manicures! I have somehow managed not to break any nails though!!! I was so worried I'd break my 1.5 year no break streak! *Knock on wood*
Anyway, I didn't manage to post this particular manicure at the time I was wearing it as that was in the week lead up to our engagement party and I had heaps of stuff to do! (I did have time to make my nails nice....just no time to post on the blog). I think it's a winner though!
I first painted my nails with Essie Tart Deco and then used a makeup sponge to make the gradient with Tart Deco, OPI Atomic Orange and China Glaze Heli-yum.
The dandelion is from a MoYou London plate- Kitty collection 02. I actually have 2 MoYou london plates with dandelions (also Pro 06), but the Pro 06 dandelions are too big to fit on my nails =(
I've wanted to do dandelion nails for a very long time. I think they are so pretty and I love having the little seeds flying off on the adjacent nails.
I used Konad stamping polish in black :)
I managed to take a quick picture of Essie Tart Deco by itself before I sponged on the gradient. It was so beautiful I wanted to show it off alone. I have been searching for years for this exact colour coral polish: not quite pink, not quite orange and slightly pastel. Holy Grail!!
I hope you have enjoyed this post :)
