Soooo, later than expected here is my Oriental mani for the Theme Buffet... You'll have this one today and the new theme tomorrow lol! I used one of the new Barry M Gelly's for the base, Elderberry, it's a beaut grey/blue which I just adore. I then got out some oriental style Born Pretty nail transfers which I bought a good while ago now, this theme was the perfect excuse!
I did two coats of the gelly, coverage and shine was really good, as usual for bazza! Once dry I cut out the transfers I wanted to use then one at a time, placed them in water, dampened the nail, removed from the paper backing and placed with tweezers. Once happy with the position, I blotted each nail with kitchen towel and topcoated, being sure to cap the ends. Any excess just shrunk away under the topcoat and they tidyed up beautifully; really impressed with these!
How fab do they look?! I've never had tranfers that just WORK. No bubbling or rippling etc and within 30 mins of topcoating I was doing housework with no problems! I can't wait to try the heap of others I bought now lol.
