Manicure Monday: Minty Houndstooth17:45:00
This manicure is actually from a little while ago, but I did wanted to share some pictures, as I liked it a lot. And I also got many compliments on the houndstooth.
I'm into black and white with pops of colour, and I think the best combinations is either gold, pink or, in this case, mint. They just bring a hint of girlyness to the neutral B&W!
The houndstooth is actually nail wraps, as I wouldn't be able to reproduce that on my nails. They are the Sally Hansen Salon Effect Real Nail Polish Strips I have talked about in my last Sample Sunday post. This is one strip for both my accent nails. That's what I usually do, as I have tiny hands and nails.
If you look close enough, you will be able to see that I had to put some black nail polish on the tip of the accent nail, as it chipped on the first day. This is due to the fact that I had to re-stick it as I misplaced it. And the wrap fell. I didn't have that problem with the other hand. The wraps, made of real nail polish, do chip, so I would suggest to put a top coat afterwards.
The mint green is MUA's Pistachio Ice Cream. At £1 each, they don't break the bank. They also chip though, so a top coat would be essential. I always forget to put some on. But I like to switch things up regularly.
Please excuse the state of some nails, I was shedding skin :(
Do you have a favourite Spring nail colour or polish?
