Hello all! It’s the 23rd of June, one of the longest days of the year, and lucky me: also my birthday! I’m not really doing anything special today, but tonight I’m going to watch football, since the Netherlands are playing against Chile.
I also got an early birthday gift on friday, when I received the colourful nail polishes I won from IOnTrend!
Here’s the lovely set! I’m sorry for the camera phone pic, I haven’t gotten around editing the pics I made with my proper camera yet. I’ll do a review/swatch of the polishes later on! But first, I want to share my World-Cup-ready nails!
On my left hand I painted my pink and thumb with the gold (which has little orangey gold flakies!), and my middle finger with a bright in-your-face neon orange. For the flag, I sponged a red-white-blue gradient on my ring and pointy finger.
On my right hand, I did the same for my pinky, middle finger and thumb, and tried something different on my ring and pointer. You’ve probably heard of- and maybe tried- the dry brush technique. You wipe off most of the polish on the edge of the polish bottle, wipe it some more on a piece of paper, and make light strokes over your nails so you get a little bit of polish on your nails. It’s easy to layer since it dries quickly because you barely put any polish on your nails.
I finished this mani with the top coat that came with the set. There was some minor chipping/tip wear, but with some touch ups, I got to wear it since friday already!
Are you and your nails ready for the World Cup?
