Mystic Nails.

Hello everybody!

This is my very first blog post, where over time I hope to document and share parts of my life as well as what I'm currently obsessing over. Very recently I received a super exciting nail polish which I heard from the lovely Essiebutton throughout one of her Youtube videos, and it is in fact the Technic polish called Carnival. The polish itself appears incredible within the bottle, containing so many different coloured hexagonal glitter particles amongst a clear polish. According to Essie it is a cheaper alternative to the pricey OPI glitter polish that was recently released. When I say 'cheaper' I mean BARGAIN!... this beauty only costs £1.50!!! So when this arrived a couple of days ago, I simply needed to paint it on my nails immediately, so this is the nail look I chose to create. 

 The overall nail look is quite fun and daring, with a metallic purple base colour, along with the incredible glitter polish on top. 

 These are the nail products I chose to create the nail look. As I misplaced my usual base coat, I decided to use Sally Hansen Hard As Nails as a base coat to protect my nails from any staining. For the base colour I decided to use Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique in Smile in a Storm which is an interesting double ended nail polish. With this polish you can apply either one of the polishes separately or you can combine the colours to create a third shade. This is what I did here, placing the charcoal grey on first, along with the shimmery peal white to create a unique metallic purple colour. I then placed one coat of the Technic polish in the colour Carnival on top to finish the look. To seal in the design I then finally coated my nails again with the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails.
