The 5 minute mani

Hey guys!
This is just a quick post to show you a Mani that I wore for literally 5 minutes yesterday.
I’m not sure exactly what I was trying to achieve, I was just playing around with stuff. It took me about half an hour to make, but literally as it was still drying I received a new nail varnish in the post and immediately had to try it!! So I swiftly took this one off and put my new surprise nail varnish on. Ever more proof that I have more free time than sense.

Ta daa! I started with a pale lilac base coat, sponged on some darker lilac ombré around the tips, followed by a pearly shimmer, then to top it off I freehanded some squiggles on with a deep purple using a thin nail art brush. Here’s the colours I used…

For the brief few moments that I wore it, someone suggested it looked kind of like an underwater scene. So maybe I’ll try it again some time with blues and greens instead.
Even though it didn’t last long, it’s all practice!
Ciao for nao!
