Good morning lovelies & happy Tuesday! Here in Halifax, we’ve been having a surge of almost Spring like weather, which leaves me feeling refreshed & hopeful! I’m totally going to ignore the Winter storm heading our way in a couple days, & just pretend that Spring is on it’s way.
Today’s look feels very refreshing & Spring like as well. I decided to wanted to try & create a “classic” looking marble.
For this manicure, the polishes I’m wearing are:
- Base Coat: Essie Treat & Colour Gloss Fi
- Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
- Essie Ballet Slippers
- White Acrylic Paint
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Nailstuff.ca Gold Metallic Flakies (COFFEE10 to save 10%!)
For this look, I started off with a base of Ballet Slippers, & then watered down some acrylic paint & brushes it along the nail using my skinner brush. If I felt like my lines were too harsh, I’d take my round clean up brush, dip it in water, & water down the paint on my nails (or remove it completely, which is the benefit of using acrylic paint!)
& then obviously I needed some gold. & these gold flakies from NailStuff are kind of my new obsession. They’re so beautiful!
