So on to my nail design. A few weeks ago my auntie gave me two Estee Lauder Nail Lacquers from the Pure Color range. She got them as gifts but she never paints her own nails so she gave them to me. I was like a magpie with a shiny object, the bottles on these polishes are so pretty; I would happily have a shelf full of them on display in my bedroom as they are just so eye catching. The colour I used in this design is E1 Black Iris.
I applied my Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Base Coat to all my nails. Then I applied 3 coats of Black Iris, leaving 10 minutes drying time between each coat. Next I applied my Rimmel Pro Matte Finish Top Coat and again waited 10 minutes for them to dry. Finally I applied my glossy tips by using my Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat to the tips of my nails. I held the brush over my nail and rolled my finger rather than the brush so to keep the line as straight as possible. And this is how they look:
The camera doesn't quite pick up the glossy tips as much as I would have liked it to but you can see it better in the second photograph. What do you think of my short squared nails? Do you like matte and glossy together? Do you have any of the Estee Lauder Nail Lacquers? I hope you enjoyed and thank you for reading xxx
