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 😛

Today’s shell is applied/completed in the same fashion as Caviar manicure. I have used Barry M’s Gelly nail paint in Grapefruit.

  1. Apply base coat and 1 coat of nail polish (your base colour)
  2. Apply 2nd layer of the nail colour and pour the shell pieces onto the nail while the polish is still wet.
  3. Press on the shell to make sure all pieces are secured.
  4. 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!
