Pick 'N' Mix Challenge: 3 Colour Gradient/Pink

Monday, 6 October 2014

Monday again folks!...
...And time for my second Pick 'N' Mix challenge mani; like last week I decided to combine the themes because I am planning and prepping lots of posts at the moment :) I chose an ethereal look of whites, blues and of course pink. It's a sort of tribute mani to my lovely Grandma Jean who passed away over the weekend, such a delicate 83 year old flower...

This mani was super simple thanks to some recent Born Pretty transfer purchases! The back of the transfer sheet was white so I just used my topcoat as a base to give it something to adhere to. I then did the usual process of cutting out and soaking the transfer in water, removing from the backing and then placing on the nail. I gave it a firm rub down with a dry cotton pad to remove any excess water and smooth out any creases etc. I finished by popping on a glitter topper and topcoat.

I loved the very delicate pattern on the transfer but as a whole the manicure just seemed a little too flat... I was at a loss as to what to do, so "when in doubt, just add glitter!" I loved it in person, but in the snaps, it masks the design a little to much... Oh bottoms lol!

    1. Oh you should give them a try hun! So easy to use for a whole mani or as an accent to a mani, and you can mix and match the zillions of designs! :) Thanks for the nomination but I did that a year or so ago, my GFC follower numbers are a little deceiving lol ;)
