Hey kidlets! How's your weekend going? Autumn is in the air in Sydney, it's a little chilly while still being a gorgeous, sunny day. And, I have some cupcakes baking right now, they should be ready once I'm done with this post!
Today I have another four manicures to share and then I will be almost caught up on all my previously shared manis and I can start blogging about them as I do them!
First up is Hidden by Marianne Curley. It's paranormal YA featuring angels which would usually put me off a book, but in this case it worked. For this mani I did 2 coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl, then I taped off the tips of my nails and painted them with Zoya Tart. I used Konad image plate M77 to stamp on the feathers with Zoya Snow White.
Next up is the sequel to a very popular book, Prodigy by Marie Lu. Again I started with 2 coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl (it really is the best black polish). Over the middle of each nail I sponged on Zoya Freya and then over that I sponged Natio Turquoise. I used a very pointy dotting tool (from a MASH Nail brush set) to draw the eagle on the ring finger using Orly Liquid Vinyl.
The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead is one of my favourite recent reads, her books are always a lot of fun. I started with 2 coats of China Glaze Secret Periwinkle. On the ring and thumb nails I stamped using Orly Luxe but it didn't show up as well as I hoped so I stamped over the top using Barry M Navy Blue and Konad image plate M77. I also used Barry M Navy Blue on the rest of the nails along with Konad image plate M63.
And lastly is Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo! I used 2 coats of Zoya Freya and then I stamped using Orly Liquid Vinyl and Konad image plate M63. I used L.A Colors Art Deco Striper in Red Glitter to add dashes of red in between the lines.
I did attempt to free hand some white antlers on my ring nail but it looked bad so I re-did that nail! I also attempted my first water marbling mani before doing this one, but it was an epic fail, so I went with this look instead :)
I'm off to get my cupcakes out of the oven and I hope you all have a fantastic rest of the weekend! xox
