Hiya there :)
I lied in my last post, that wasn’t the last summer NOTD… this will be. I totally forgot I had this manicure photographed couple of weeks back. My bad!
I received this Shell Manicure set at my last clothes swap with my girley friends, where we swap clothes, makeup, shoes, home stuff, general beauty etc. I love clothes swap as you might already know. .. We always have so much fun :)
I’ve only started playing with texture manis not that long ago. I’ve started with Caviar manicure, it’s 3D but not too practical. Very pretty thou ;)
“She Sells Seashells” is a very lovely mixture of pink based shell pieces, mostly pink but it also has green, yellow, purple and darker pink pieces. I probably didn’t use enough shell pieces :P
Today’s shell is applied/completed in the same fashion as Caviar manicure. I have used Barry M’s Gelly nail paint in Grapefruit.
- Apply base coat and 1 coat of nail polish (your base colour)
- Apply 2nd layer of the nail colour and pour the shell pieces onto the nail while the polish is still wet.
- Press on the shell to make sure all pieces are secured.
- Apply top coat to protect your manicure.
Pressing on the shell pieces not only will secure its place, you’ll also flatten it so that nothing sharp with poke out.
Price: £20 (The Shell mani set comes with a bottle Fun Fair and a bottle of pink based shell mixture)
Availability: Ciate online, Debenhams
Overall Score: 3/5 :)
And the possible dupe! I went to Poundworld and found a pack of shell mixture in 6 different colours :) yup all for £1!
With the colour shell pieces, you can customise your own shell mani ;)
Thanks for reading and have a great Friday and weekend!
