Hi pretty! How are you this Sunday? I have had a lovely week off from school and been home visiting my mamma and daddy. Superb nice and relaxing. I have not had varnish on my nail in, what feels like, forever so I have had a little nail pampering session.
The first thing I do before applying the varnish is to clean and polish them. The cuticles need to go go, so I use Sally Hansen Gel Cuticle Remover which works perfectly - all I need to get my hands on is a cuticle-remover-tool. I leave this on for 5 minutes or so and wash it of. Next I go and clean my nails with nail varnish remover and then I take my ELF Nourishing Cuticle Pen. I love this little gem which is filled with Avocado and Almond oils.
Now for the more exiting part! I was very much inspired by Lily Pebbles in this video to do this creation. I wanted to do something special now that it had been ages since my last nail session and I wanted to do something with white polish! This creation might be a bit summer-y but you could also do it with darker red colours to make it more Autumn-y.
My white varnish is from my loved L'Oréal Color Riche collection and is called Snow in Megeve. It needs two coats before it get opaque, I love the brush on these varnishes! You could leave it with the white, which actually looks quiet cool but as I said I wanted to do something special. So let the dotting begin!
Dot dot dot with three different colours or do it as I have done - OMBRE! I have used a pink, a orange and a yellow. Yep, summer-y. I start with the pink which is from my Maxfactor Glossfinity collection this one is in Disco Pink. I dot diagonal from the bottom left to the top right in one line. Then I take the orange in this case Rimmel London Lasting Finish in You're A Cracker. I dot again from the bottom left to top right, but this time I do it on either side of the pink and I dot between the pink dots - if you know what I mean (I hope you can see it on the pictures) Lastly I do the same with the yellow - L'Oréal Color Riche in Exotic Canaries.
And BAM your nails are dotted-ombre! I think I am going to only keep it on two nails on each hand but do it as you feel like ;)
What are your favourite Autumn nail trend? Do tell me in the comments, would love to create more nails! <3
