Do you ever get so taken by a manicure that you have to try it straight away? That is exactly what happened to me today when I saw Anna’s nails earlier today. They are a replica of Evanora’s nails from the new Oz The Great and Powerful movie.
For this manicure I don’t think it really matters what polish I used. I used a black, a gold nail art pen and a feint glitter as my base. You could probably use anything. My manicure also isn’t exactly precise but I look the creepiness of my nails. I was the wicked witch of the west in my primary school production of The Wizard of Oz so feel like I have tapped into my inner witch today.
I haven’t even seen the film yet would you believe but hope to in the next couple of days. What do you think of my Evanora inspired nails?
Last months Glamour Magazine [maybe it was this month's but it seems like I got it weeks ago!] featured four different free Nails Inc nail polishes which could be collected. The polishes were full size and considering Glamour Magazine is £2 it meant for £8 I had £44 worth of nail polish! The trip to get the four nail polishes was actually undertaken by my husband. He spent a Sunday morning traipsing around seven newsagents and supermarkets before he found all four shades.
For Christmas my husband bought me two Nails Inc Magnetic Polishes. I wore them both loads and loads all through January and February and then I sort of forgot about them. I was having a bit of a sort out of my polishes and I thought I would do a blog post about one of them. This colour is a dark purple in the bottle and is called Houses of Parliament.
A really quick nail post tonight. I wanted something fun and girlie but didn’t take too many pictures.
Base: Barry M Nail Hardener 3 in one top and base coat
Base Colour: Nails Inc Marylebone Lane
Stamping plates: CH 11, CH 24
As part of a Nails Inc gift set I was given was this metallic blue shade. It is called Holbein place. I thought I would try some stamping on it.
I have tried a coral gradient manicure before but tonight I tried to use three colours rather than just two. The effect isn’t as great as I wanted. The sponge I have used has left an unsmooth finish so I think I need to change the type of sponge that I do this with.
Nails Inc Suffolk Street is a really lovely dark purple colour which I decided to stamp on using Barry M Purple Foil.
