I am back from my vacation and even though I really had a wonderful time, I missed blogging and painting my nails! Unfortunately I didn't schedule enough posts for the whole two weeks. But now that I am back I'll do my best to get back into my usual blogging routine! Today I have a manicure to share with you, that I did shortly before my trip. A zipper mani.
The blue polish I used as a base is alessandro - Stone Washed (15-556). Stone Washed has an excellent formula and is easy to apply, But I had some trouble with the brush at first. It is flat, but has a straight tip and so I touched my cuticles a few times.
I really like the colour a lot it reminds me a bit of blue jeans wich inspired me to do this manicure in the first place. To place the zipper water decals, that I bought from Born Pretty Store, perfectly, I painted a gap on my ringfinger and thumb, that I filled with Barry M - Nude. Once that was dry I cut out my zippers and placed them on my nails.
Some of the decals had a white background wich made them stand out very well, but others didn't and were pretty hard to see. So I am not 100% satisfied with these water decals, but they definitely make a fun manicure! Maybe they would look better if a lighter colour was used as a background.
To create an even better denim look I ripped out a small piece of make-up sponge and dabbed it into some white polish and filled in some of the blue with it. Now it really reminds me of a pair of stone washed jeans! :-D
How do you like it? Have you ever tried BPS water decals?
