DIY Inspired: Grey Damask Mani

Tuesday 18 August 2015

Evening loves!
This week I have started the redecorating of my living room after we had the ceiling replastered and painted and new spotlights fitted while we were on holiday. After much deliberation on colours/paints/wallpapers I am finally tending to my woodwork and walls and have done a mani inspired by the scheme we've plumped for - light grey on three of the walls and a white/silver damask wallpaper on the largest "feature" wall...

This scheme just sets off our large victorian room with white shutters beautifully and it worked out pretty good on my nails too! I did three thin coats of Maybelline Colorshow 'Cool Touch' for the grey nails and two of Barry M 'Cotton' on the accent nail before stamping with 'Silver Foil Effect' using MoYou London Fashionista 07. Finished with topcoat.

Although I do adore this scheme, being the woman I am, I must confess to considering a change to the wallpaper as I've been prepping the walls and wood for painting over the last couple of days. I'm hankering after a rope and knot pattern I've seen in similar colours to this damask one so I think I'll order a sample and then make a final decision ;)

Well I'll be getting busy with a very different brush and of course the good ol' roller for the remainder of the week but I'll squeeze in a little "Throwback Thursday" post before I return proper on Saturday with another swatch.

If only it were as easy to change my rooms as it is my mani!
