HIYAAA! Welcome to my brand spanking new blog! I've been posting nail art on my Tumblr for a while now and I'm super excited finally to have somewhere I can write as many words and post as many pictures as I like. Oh, and I'm Kirstie, by the way. NAIL ART TIME.
Much as I love Scotland, sunshine isn't something we enjoy a whole lot of. However, it does mean I really appreciate a good sunny spell when it comes along. And when I say, 'Appreciate', I mean:
|Hello holo! Direct sunlight.|
SHAZAM. This is all five of the A England polishes I owned (I've since got hold of my sixth) painted in varying sizes & shapes with a nail art brush, over a base of Kiko 399, a pale gold holo. For me, all the colourful sparkles are really reminiscent of stained glass. The way the different shapes are laid out and fitted together kind of also made me think of a tortoise's shell...I felt a bit like I was walking about with magical tortoise nails. (Please don't judge me.)
I can't even express how much I love Adina's (A England's) polishes. Even out of the sun, I still think they look so beautiful, really complex and unique. The colours are gorgeous and rich, and some of them even have duochrome! It's pretty evident that a lot of love goes into creating A England collections.
|Green/gold duochrome WHAT UP!|
When this idea first popped into my head I thought maybe I was just delirious with sunshine after a miserable winter. I almost talked myself out of it on the basis that it would be 'Too much'. Hahaha, no. BEST. DECISION. EVER.
Pretty sure I've saved the best picture 'til last...
|With flash. The purple of Princess Tears gets me every time!|
Seriously, I think this has to be one of my favourite manicures ever. It just makes me so happy every time I look at it!
I hope you've enjoyed this inaugural Nail Cake post - I'd love to know what you think! Are you a holo/A England lover, too?
