Mani Catch Up - April 2019

Hello! Usually, I've tried to post every mani I do here on my blog, but that doesn't always fit into my schedule - especially when I have PR to post or I do spur of the moment nail art when swatching a collection. Occasionally this means that a mani gets lost in my archives and never posted. So from now on, I'll round up those manis at the end of each month. Read on to begin with April's catch up!

Mani Catch Up - April 2019 @acertainbeccaa

First up is a quick swatch of Essie 'Vibrant Vibes', a bright pastel green creme. I purchased this from Fragrance Direct, and used it as a base for my Barry M silver crackle swatch (posted here). This does have quite a streaky formula, which may not have been helped by the fact it was the first polish I'd applied in months. Below is four coats with topcoat.

Next up, I have some double stamping over recent Barry M molten metal 'Ice Queen', a shimmery pearly white with small silver glitters (swatched here). I then double stamped one of the patterns on Creative Shop plate 20 using Esmaltes Da Kelly 'Chili', followed by Painted Polish 'Boating in Blue Jeans'.

Next is a splatter mani over a base of Nine Zero Lacquer 'Lilac', a light purple base with multichrome flakies and a gold shimmer (swatched here). Using a straw, I splattered Esmaltes Da Kelly 'Kaa' over the top of each nail.

What do you think? I much prefer this new idea, and hopefully it will help me to keep up and avoid having 'random' manis sat in my archives for months at a time! Fingers crossed it also helps me get through some of my untrieds, and maybe do some more nail art too.

Hope to see you in the next post!
