It's getting better and better every time I do a Polish Party post as the weather is beautiful at the moment. Probably due to the fact it's getting nearer and nearer summer which I may be a tad excited for! April's theme is a manicure inspired by another Polish Party member meaning another excuse to look through all their lovely blogs for a manicure that would inspire me or I could recreate. My inspiration by Big Jig Nails! in the form of their March's Party Polish: Spring as it looked super cute and a really pretty simple design. Let's give it a go:
Not one for holding back, I chose colours that would contrast each other well so they'd stand out. They are 60 Straw-ready by Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry and 101 Snow me white by Sinful colors, these are both new editions to the already massive nail polish stash. Here's the base coat:
It's the perfect white nail polish as it's opaque in two coats without any streaks or patches across the nails. This is what I've always wanted in a white seeing as there were so many raves about this one I decided to ditch the no white policy. Despite this 101 Snow me white still has the age old Sinful Colors problem of the brush isn't that well design meaning you have to be extra careful not to get drips running down the brush unplanned... Next is the fun part applying the design - wish me luck!
Recreating this design was so much fun to do and probably shows from the outcome of the manicure. Thanks again to Big Jig Nails! for the inspiration, it's going to appear again on my nails I can feel it. Especially as it uses the oh-so-simple dotting tools which currently never get put down. 60 Straw-ready was a lovely colour to apply as it's so opaque, by itself it's a one coat wonder. The brush it came with was much simpler to use whilst doing this technique. I think it's a brilliant outcome and hopefully you guys will agree!?
