#nailfail – One Stroke Feathers

Isn’t it funny how, if I had done this nail art a year ago, I would have been super pleased, yet today it feels like a nail fail?! 

I’m still happy to put less-than-perfect nail art up, though, I think you all know I’m not perfect already, haha!

A England Jane Eyre & awesome One Stroke Roses

A England Jane Eyre - One Stroke Rose Nail Art-006

Hey ladies! It’s Thursday, which means that tomorrow is Friday, woop! Monday will be another national holiday in France (Armistice Day), so I have another long weekend coming up 🙂

Today I woke up feeling a bit groggy with a huge cold. But since Thursdays are work-from-home days, it wasn’t too bad, I’ve been keeping warm and drinking plenty of fluids. I even got quite a lot of work done in the end 🙂 but since I woke up an hour before I needed to get to business, I grabbed my gorgeous (synthetic – because I really am against animal cruelty, you may have noticed!) Roubloffs and decided to try doing one-stroke roses. For the first time. And it turned out awesome. So prepare for some photo spam!

#31DC2013 – Flowers

Hey ladies!

Well, our internet is being a pain again, it may not be fixed until Tuesday (boo!) so in the meantime, I’ve worked out that if I push my phone right against the window, I can just about get enough 3G to use my phone as a WiFi hotspot. Most of the time. So let’s hope that this post works !

My base colour is Ciaté – Candy Floss. This pink really surprised me, it has a great cool tone to it that is super flattering. The first coat is very sheer and streaky, but the second is just perfection!

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 14. Flowers

My favourite flower nail art is definitely one stroke. I don’t pretend that I’ve got the hang of it 100% just yet; but I treated myself to some nice Roubloff brushes (for my birthday, of course!), and having that quality really does help !

I also used today’s theme as an excuse to test another polish that I’m developing for the Boutique. I can’t decide if it’s nice with just a bit of sparkle, or if it needs some more, what do you think, ladies?

I’m not even going to try to describe this polish ! It’s like having shimmering water on your nails ! I cannot wait to wear this with a tan (if the sun ever comes out!) – but it’ll also make a great frosty polish for the winter 🙂
