Pink Princess

Hello Everyone!

I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted; time just seems to fly by without me noticing. One minute it was the last day of May and the next it's nearly the end of June?!

Anyway, lets get to the nail art :) One of my favourite colours to pair with blush pink is pale gold. It's just such an elegant and chic colour combination! In order to showcase these two colours at their best, I decided to pair a special nail polish with embellished lace accent nails;


I started the manicure by painting most of my nails (pointer, middle and pinkie) with Barry M 'Princess', a beautiful pink textured nail polish with small silver glitter and tiny gold flakes. It's so sparkly, photos just don't do this polish justice!


On my accent nails (thumb and ring), I painted a couple of coats of Champneys 'Nude' (sheer pale nude), followed by a coat of OPI 'I Theodora You' (sheer pale pink). I wanted a delicate feel to the manicure so these sheer polishes made a perfect base.


Using my thinnest striping brush and OPI 'My Very First Knockwurst' (dusky pink toned beige) I painted on the lace including the flower details. Then I used Barry M 'Rose Hip' (pale pink) to add definition to the flower petals and leaves.


I used a fine detail brush and OPI 'Up Front And Personal' (pale gold) to outline each of the petals and leaves. Then I dabbed on Barry M 'Princess' and Barry M 'Rose Quartz' (rose pink and holo silver glitter) here and there for a bit of sparkly detail. I finished it off with a coat of Essie 'Good To Go' on my accent nails.



I'm not sure that I quite achieved 'embellished lace' but I like the look of the manicure as a whole anyway. It's very delicate and ladylike :)

Thanks for reading!
