Mani Monday #25

A close friend of mine walked down the aisle last week and tied the knot with her long-term boyfriend. After a week of hunting down the right dress for the occasion, I needed nails to match.

Honestly, finding the right dress is a blog in itself; I didn’t want to wear black or white, but something pretty enough for an evening do, so I went for a yellow dress with a cream pattern and a peter pan collar. Now all I needed was a matching manicure taking full inspiration from my outfit.

The yellow nail paint is quite thin and requires a lot of layers, so the trick is to use a white base coat.10508418_10154317133920545_1500448065_n

I still had to do two layers of the yellow for even coverage, but the white base coat helped show off the colour and lighten it up at the same time.

For my nails to really pop, I used a nail stamp to add a lovely flower design. The design is actually only four flowers so I had to repeat the stamp on each nail about three times. To finish, I used my favourite matt top coat.

I was really please with the way my nails looked.
