So apparently spring is here – it’s cold, wet and windy where I am but flowers are out so I’m happy enough 🙂 I thought I’d show you a pastel-y spring-y mani today, done when my nails were longer (sob!)
This is Ciate Sugar Plum, which is a pretty cool-leaning lilac. Mr Magpie bought me one of the Ciate advent calendars for Christmas – I got it on Christmas day rather than the start of December which kinda negated the whole advent part of it, but meant I had great fun opening all the doors at once! Glitter, caviar and mini polishes everywhere 🙂
I did two coats of Sugar Plum – looking at the photos I think I should have done three. My camera has trouble picking up colours like this one, so I did a flash picture too which is closer colour wise, but killed the glitters.
The bitter is Circus Confetti from Essence. It is a colourful riot of multi coloured, multi sized glitters and my inner magpie adores it!
Just look at all that glittery goodness! I’m not sure why I did one full nail and the rest just tips, I think it would have been better either all tips or just an accent nail. Blame the acetone fumes.
