Shell Nails Manicure from Claire's!

Wednesday 29 May 2013

I spotted this little kit in Claire's today, unfortunately I missed out on the £1 a bottle offer on polish over the weekend, but it does seem to have made way for some fresh stuff! Found a couple of lovely polishes for £2.50 which I will use tomorrow... And I got this little set which was £5 and comes in this pink or a mix of pastel shades.

I paired this little kit up with a pink Barry M favourite of mine, two coats over a base of 3 in 1. I then used the 3 in 1 again on the thumb, middle and pinky fingers before sprinkling on the shell... brushed off the excess and just patted down with the tip of my finger, I also used an orange stick to neaten around the cuticles. I then just poured the excess back into the bottle with the handy little funnel provided in the kit; which will also be useful for my caviar beads etc! I wasn't sure what I'd make of this look, I can't really say I've seen many shell mani's around?!... But I really like it! Will be keeping my eye out for other colours that may appear in Claire's. What do you guys think? Yay or nay to the beach being brought to your mani?? :)

  1. I also spotted this in Claire's - I was intrigued, but not enough to buy it lol.

    It does look pretty though - I wonder what it would be like over a contrasting colour polish?

    1. Hahaha! I ummed and arred about it for ages before eventually just chucking it in the basket!

      That's a good question... not much polish,if any at all seems to be left showing.. I'm gonna pop it on with a blue later to find out!! :)

  2. This looks really pretty - love the colour! the thing I was worried about though was that it'd be really sharp, with shards of shell sticking out? I would definitely scratch myself or something! X

    1. Thanks! Hmm... they were a little sharp, didn't scratch myself as the pieces lay fairly flat to the nail... but they did catch in wooly clothes and my hair!! Lol x
