#Naillinkupsa -Mauve Misfit


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.

  1. Never used the glitter before, only used gllitter nail polish…love it but a nightmare to remove. If I should use nail glitter like you used it, I would apply a gel top coat over so that it seals nicely and lasts longer

    1. I never even thought of a gel top coat.Thanks for the tip,I will have to go out and buy one now hehehehe.I have the perfect no fuss way to remove glitter nail polish I will do a post and tag you when I do.
