When this post is published I will have just landed in Beijing! I'm pretty excited... only thing is there are so many websites that are blocked... including blogger/blogspot! :'( Can't blog or read anyone else's nail blogs then I guess but I will try to catch up when I get back!
Anyway this is the mani I did the night before my flight. This is inspired by this mani by @stylish_mom on Instagram. I really liked the look of the nude nail with white flowers. I thought this design would be perfect for a vacation mani since it would be really hard to see any chipping or gap as it grows out. I can probably leave this one for a week before it starts to look bad in real life from a normal viewing distance (not me inspecting them and being OCD lol). This design would also be perfect for a wedding!
Her design has freehand flowers but I really didn't have the time (or skill/patience) so I stamped the flowers instead. I started with base coat (OPI Nail Envy), then 1 coat of China Glaze Candlelight (a very lightly tinted polish that is almost clear - just enough to cover light staining), stamped with Pueen 22 + Sally Hansen Whirlwind White, and then added another coat of Candlelight to soften the white so it wasn't so stark, and finally topcoat (Color Club). (Okay worst run on sentence ever but it's so late that I'm not even going to try to sleep before my flight... I don't think that I would wake up. This is an all-nighter night then I'm going to sleep on the plane! So ya I don't make too much sense)
See you girls in a few weeks! I scheduled 2 posts per week for while I'm gone though just so this blog doesn't get completely abandoned :)
