TWN: Polka dots (and bluebells)

This week’s nail fun – pinky-mocha with gold polka dots. Picture taken in Gordon Square, which is just stunning right now. The bluebells are out too early, though…

I used:

  • Champney’s ‘Mocha’ (I think you can get Champney’s polishes in Sainsbury’s? This was a present. It’s a lovely, useful neutral)
  • Chanel ‘Gold Fiction’ for the polka dots, with Barry M ‘Treasure Chest’ on top on the accent nails
  • The ‘sticky sandwich’ technique (see this post for info)



This week’s nails

Illamasqua in Fragile, for Spring.

Base coat of Orly Bonder, 2 coats of polish, another coat of Orly Bonder then sealed with a coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Flash (better than Seche Vite, IMO – doesn’t smell as strong and there’s very little shrinkage at the tips).

(Guest appearance by my lovely Rifle Paper Co telephone message pad – purchased in Paperchase but I’ve since spied them cheaper – grr – in Waterstones)
