As part of my series inspired by semi-precious stones, I’ve been looking around for my next project. The photo (scroll down) really caught my eye, so I’m trying this Fire Obsidian nail art. It’s an experiment in progress so I think I’ll be coming back and trying this again.
In case you missed it, here’s a round up of the Chanel Nail Polish Holiday 2016 Swatches I posted a couple of weeks ago. You will have to be quick if you want one, since these are limited edition polishes! I’ve linked through to my full reviews of each one if you’d like to know more.
I had the chance recently to do a maniswap with TaliaLouise on Instagram. This Neon Love nail art design is from way back (and much copied) and it’s a great design. It was also what inspired me to go looking for a new, true neon blue polish.
The next swatch I have for you from the Christmas collection is Chanel Hyperrose Glass 544, and ‘glass’ is definitely the right name for it! This is a beautiful blue-toned pink, but it’s incredibly sheer. Keep reading to see how I got on with it…
The challenge on Nail Art Nation last week was French tips. I’m not normally a fan of this style, maybe because I find it a bit boring! But I’m not sure if my natural nails are best suited to it anyway. I chose to do a Nude and Neon French Tip with a soft gradient.
After my woeful attempt at watermarbling with my pastel neons (you can click on that if you want to feel better about your own skills) I decided that I needed some neon polishes that were suitable for the job. I shopped around, and with the able assistance of my US-based polish mule, I got my digits on the Fun Days and Neon Craze collection from In The Name of Polish. I had to start with a Neon Watermarble Starburst to test them out.
