Hi everyone! We’ve knocked the second month of 2015 out of the park. Wait, what? Sheesh! Bye bye February! It’s time for another Nail Anarchy challenge! This month it was Ordinary Misfit‘s turn to pick the theme for our manis. It’s the month of love and she decided on “Tainted Love” as the theme for this month. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart, so it took me a while to wrap my head around this one. I do like what I came up with though. Let me show you!
I just had to squeeze in a sun shot here! This photo really doesn’t do the holo justice. Look at the thumb! For this mani I started off with my usual Tip Top base coat and painted 2 coats of Ethereal Lacquer Black Rose on all of my nails. This polish was a gift from my Belgian friend. I went absolutely nuts when I saw Emily swatch this polish and lusted after it to the point where I think he bought it for me to get me to shut up about it 😉 Black Rose is a gorgeous dark purple polish with scattered holographic particles throughout. It dries matte, so you’ll want to add a top coat for a beautiful shine. Once the base was dry I used Tip Top Armour Plate and 3 images on PUEEN 37 to stamp the broken heart images as well as the rings. The rings on my ring nail (that was unintentional!) symbolise how you are hypnotised by love. The other images I chose are pretty self explanatory. I sealed everything in with a coat of Dashing Diva Top Seal. Tainted Love breaks my heart! Strangely it also fit in with how I felt when I did this mani. I’ve been going through a lot of changes in my personal life and it has been very stressful. Nothing to worry about, just big life changes that will take some adaptation. It’s weird but when I photograph scattered holos in my lightbox with my new camera they polish almost looks grainy. I don’t know if my camera just picks up the holo particles causing this, but it just shows the level of detail my Note 4 camera sees.
