I decided to go for the mauve prompt this week ,which was selected in honour of our awesome South African Blogger Ordinary Misfit.
Mauve can be considered as a neutral colour (so it is work friendly) it is also a fantastic colour for the Autumn/Winter season.
Mauve is a pale purple colour that was named after the mallow flower.The name was first used as a colour between 1796- 1798.The colour Mauve is made up of blue,lavender and grey.
So for this mauve mani – I used the following items ;
–Yardley Proteinized Glaze treatment as a base and top coat.
-Revlon nail polish in girly which has a metallic tint to it.
-A mauve glitter that I applied by using a clear polish and dipping it into the glitter and then applying it to my thumb as an accent nail.This wasn’t a very smooth application and it ended up quite thick and even though I sealed with the Yardley it still seems to come off everywhere.This was my first time applying glitter so I guess I will have to use it a few more times to get the best way of applying it.I would also ike to try a smaller more finer glitter just to see the difference.
I also turned my bedroom mat into a galaxy when I wanted to take my pics because the whole pot of glitter fell over,even though a lot fell out I still have more than half left so at least I know it was worth the money I spent as there is obviously more than enough product per pot.
Have you used nail glitter before?Do you have any tips or tricks to share with me?Let me know in the comments section below.
