Nail mani of the week!

I'm off to Birmingham tomorrow for the College of Law Open Day. I remembered about an hour ago that I needed to do my nails. Yesterday, I'd seen some mani photos from China Glaze and was in the mood for some experimentation.

Here's my inspiration from China Glaze:

I don't have any China Glaze polish as I can't find any retail outlets that stock it in the UK. If you're any the wiser, I'd love to know :) So I used my alternatives and here's what I came up with. I've done 4 pics, one with each bottle of polish that I used:

Rimmel London Wear Maxx in 345 Pop Apricot

Rimmel London 60 Seconds in 819 Green With Envy

Nails Inc in London Nights

Barry M Basecoat, Topcoat & Nail Hardener All In One (used as topcoat only)

I am actually a little bit in love with this mani! What do you guys think? It was actually surprisingly easy. One coat of Pop Apricot, I did the tips with Green With Envy using a small, stiff nail brush (diameter approx 3mm), added the black 'seeds' with a dotting tool using London Nights, then topped it with the Barry M 3 in 1 clear polish. Actually didn't take that long either :) Just something different to do while I had some spare time on my hands. Believe me, such is precious these days!

Until next time,
Dottie xx
