Mani Monday #19

Over the past week, I have caved into getting an Xbox One (let’s not start a whole argument over which console is better)…

We are an Xbox household – clearly now until death apparently. Therefore, Can you guess what this week’s inspiration had to be?

I’ve been dying to practice my free hand even though I lack the proper equipment (Mum, Models Own just brought out a nail art set and my birthday is soon…).

In fairness, my fine paint brush trimmed isn’t too shabby but we always seek perfection.

To fulfil my mister’s desires, I pulled out my black nail varnish with full knowledge of it’s staining ability. To help replicate the matte vs gloss look on the Xbox controller, I turned to my EssieĀ Matte About You topcoat.

I love matte nails and its so effective with black varnish. It’s not perfect I know, but it’s not a bad first attempt and if it’s enough to inspire others to pick up a brush then I’m happy.

We would love to see your nail art too, send over your quirky designs for us to share!

– love Clare x
