This week on #SundayNails I wanted a shade more sophisticated than normal. Something low key, subtle. After rummaging around in my nails drawers for a good ten minutes I came across the perfect colour.
From previous posts you can tell that I’m a big fan of the ‘Cheeky’ range and to my (sheer) delight I stumbled across a polish I haven’t used yet! The aptly named ‘Sheer Delight’ is the ideal French manicure base but if you do a couple of coats you can build a gorgeous silky pink.
With this is mind I toyed with the idea of doing a full on French mani but I’m a bit rubbish with tips so instead I chose to use another birthday colour.
This being the ever so clever YSL Glitter Gel Top Coat. It’s gold, it’s glitter what’s not to love? Exactly, it’s perfect! Instead of adding this to every nail I decide to focus on the accent. It gives the right pop to a very ladylike mani I must say. Just what I was after this week.
To finish off the look I added a layer of my Dior Gel Top Coat. I’m a girl obsessed! Every colour lasts so much longer with this over the top, it is a must! As I’m really fussy I ever painted it over the YSL ‘Feuille D’or’ that’s a top coat in itself) for extra protection.
If you want to recreate this mani you will need:
– Cheeky Chat Me Up Nail Paint in ‘Sheer Delight’
– YSL ‘Feuille D’or’ Glitter Gel Top Coat
– Dior Gel Top Coat
– and a little bit of O.P.I ‘Nail Envy’ for the base
