Getting My Nude On

Greetings All!

I'm taking time out from clearing out the vault, to bring you a bang up to date, on my nails right now manicure!

I've been wearing a lot of nude polish lately. My nails are stained, uneven, and shorter than I'd like, but it's been really nice and cleansing to hide them but still have them looking natural and subtle. Plus it makes a great background to add a bit of glitter!

My favourite at the moment is OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, the latest in a long line of nearly-but-not-quite-mannequin-hands polishes that I keep rotating through. I've been wearing it 2 or 3 days a week! Today I felt like adding a bit of stamping.

It took me forever to find the right kind of stamp, as I had a specific style in mind. Somehow I still don't have enough stamping plates! This one is from Cheeky Jumbo Plate 8, Princess Charming. The little flowers/leaves are meant to be solid, but I quite like them like this, as they look more delicate. I always think nude and black looks better matte, so of course that had to happen.

Sometimes I forget that a simple manicure can be just as effective as a more complicated one!


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
