The last few weeks have been crazy busy. We have bought a house! Yep I know we only just settled into our rental but the perfect family home popped up and we are delighted to be moving there in a month or two. With that in mind, SundayNails may well turn into MondayManicure whilst our renovations are underway. This is also my get out clause for being rather quiet of late. I certainly haven’t forgotten you all…

This past weekend SundayNails celebrated with the boy at a family wedding. We have been banned from promoting the event on social. So although this week’s nails are technically wedding nails that’s as much as I can say about the event itself. I will say it was romantic, intimate and beautiful.

So the nails… A gorgeous shade of plum. The outfit was planned to complement the boy (aka best man) and have a nod towards the autumnal season, despite the weather turning on the day and us having amazing sunshine!

After visiting Nailympia, I managed to find just the right shade of mulberry plum. Plus rather a lot of others! It is with thanks to OPI that I found ‘the one’

I was delighted with the shade upon application too, I was worried that it might be a little too light, so had also bought a darker version, but it proved just right. Two coats did the trick and I was left with a very even opaque finish. The look was finished with of course Seche Vite (I do promise to try some more top coats soon! It is just very hard to trust something else to deliver as well. But that is the spirit of SundayNails so watch this space).
