University has really been killing me with work recently, but on the plus side I'm nearly finished.
More nail art for today; this time without the sharpies. I recently bough the November issue of Glamour Magazine. One of the freebie gifts that came with it was a bottle of Nails Inc polish. I had never tried the brand before; it just wasn't on my priority lost. I chose the grey shade called 'Marylebone Mews' as I have nothing even close to that shade. It has undertones of purple, so I kind of think of it as a 'heather grey'.
The nail art is very simple; all you need is a polish in any colour of your choice. and a coordinating glitter topcoat (I used Barry M Glitter Nail Paint in Silver). Give your nails a good two or three coats of your base nail colour. I don't bother personally with base coats; I never notice my polish lasting any longer than normal. Then paint on the glitter topcoat, stopping about halfway down. Make sure the glitter does not form an obvious line across the nail. Keep layering the glitter, taking care to start the coat further and further up the nail until the end.
I feel like the photos do these nails no justice :(
Hopefully, I will be able to start keeping to a schedule now that the bulk of University has been finished.
