A few days ago I got a long awaited nail mail containing the new Aurora pigment from Whats up nails. Usually it takes about a week for my parcel to arrive when I order from them, but this time it took three weeks for it to arrive. The post must have messed up this time 😦
Anyway, you all probably know by now that I love Whats up nails’ powders and this one is no exception. I actually think this one is my favorite so far!
I applied the powder over white nail polish (Alpine snow from OPI), and the result is just amazing!
I want to try this pigment over so many more colors, next time I think I’ll try it over light pink or blue… or purple.
When I ordered this pigment I already had a design in mind, so I’ve been waiting some time to finally be able to make it! I knew I just had to pair it with unicorns, though I didn’t want to cover up the pigment too much, so I decided on a unicorn on just one nail.
When I was in London in the beginning of this month I picked up Models Own new Aquaproof collection. The collection consists of five bright neon shades and I’ve used four of them for this design.
I made this design for the last prompt of this month’s @clairestelle8challenge on Instagram, with the theme aztec/tribal print. I didn’t have a design planned wen I sat down to paint them. Sometimes unplanned manis turn out great, and sometimes they don’t… I’m really happy this design turned out to be one of the good ones. They’re just so bright and fun!
For this design I used Impassable yellow, Orange seal, Impervious pink and Airtight turquoise from Models Own. The stamping plate is Bundle Monster + ChitChat Nails BM-XL202 and the stamping polish is Midnight mischief from Painted Polish. To fill in the pattern I used Dance 24 detail brush from Whats up nails.
Of course I had to add a matte top coat, though I can’t decide which version I like the most. The glossy one is so bright, but the matte one shows the pattern so well. What version do you like the most?
