Welcome to Mani Monday #26, or technically, my Mani Monday #1 – having a job which saw me typing on a keyboard for nine hours a day, five days a week, meant my nails were rarely in a good enough condition to participate in our weekly feature.
But, one redundancy later (more on that bombshell to come), my claws are finally in shape and have had a little glitzy makeover which I thought I’d share.
Now, I am not a nail art expert – in fact, although I own enough nail varnishes to put Models Own out of business, I rarely do anything too fussy or fancy.
This mani took about ten minutes and consisted of three varnishes – Avon Nailwear Pro+ in shade P605 (not the catchiest of names), Models Own Magenta Divine and Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Clear.
Starting with the P605, which is a bright, punchy fuchsia as its snappy name suggests, I painted two coats (with drying time in between, obvs) before adding a thin layer of the Models Own glitter.
The clear varnish was then used to seal the deal, and et voila – a very simple, very glitzy mani.
Not bad for a first go, ay?
