British Nail Bloggers: Orange

Wednesday 16 July 2014

Hello again!

If you haven't heard, the British Nail Bloggers are finally getting together to do a weekly nail art challenge! I'm heaps excited about that, we're such a great, diverse bunch of bloggers :) I missed last week's 'Red' theme because of my holibobs, but I had one particular nail mail when I got home, that was just perfect for this week's 'Orange' theme!... Not precisely orange but a peachy perfect Polish Me Silly thermal...


...Sizzling Sunset! Luuuuuuurve it! This is three thin coats finished with topcoat. On the ring finger I did just one coat then sponged on an orange, pink and purple (leaving a small circle showing through in the centre) to add a sizzling sunset of my own. I then used a black polish and a small nail art brush to add the tree scene. I used the dry brush to sort of feather the fronds of the leaves; finished with topcoat of course.


I'm not a fan of orange/yellow/peachy polish generally but this has somehow captured me in every way. I love the peachy colour when cool and the pastel yellow when warm and when they are all mixed up, it's like a cocktail... or a sunset ;) Formula is amazingly smooth and dried fast, even on the third coat! Oh and I'm pretty pleased with my wee painting too!
