Holographic French Manicure (Black Sheep Lacquer)

DSCF3352

So this weekend has been busy !

It’s been pretty dreary weather-wise and so we haven’t really been out, but I spent yesterday sorting out prize packs for the OMD Rather Awesome Challenge with Eeeek + Crafty, then making up some new stock for the Etsy shop – making the actual polish/cuticle oil doesn’t take long, but cleaning up sure does ! Then I printed up labels and we went out for dinner (nothing fancy, just a steak house). Then today the weather was really bad so I worked on some new listings, a sort-of-guest-post, cupcakes for a colleague’s birthday (it’s a tradition in our office!) and I finally got round to the holo mani that I have been planning on doing since I discovered a super sparkly pink holo polish by Black Sheep Lacquer !

So that was my base colour for this mani – one coat of this pink is very flattering and cancels out the staining I have on my nails! Then I whipped some silver (Butter London  – Diamond Geezer) around my tips and I finished it up with 2 coats of Lateralus – also by Black Sheep.

I am so pleased it came out so well ! You know, when you’ve been planning a mani for ages, a lot of the time it comes out crappy, but this is just perfect!

We’ve still got pretty awful weather in Paris, but this is a mani that I’m going to rock hard this summer !
