NOTD - Pink and Nude Manicure

Morning Lovelies and Happy Mother's Day to all you amazing mother's!

For today's manicure I wanted to do something a bit different and something that involved pink because it's Mother's Day and I am a very proud mummy to my beautiful baby daughter "Alexis" who is a little over 8 months old!

Recently I saw the gorgeous neon and nude manicures on the Nails Inc facebook page and have since been wanting to try it out for myself and so I have. For today's manicure I used Nails Inc's "Basil Street" a nude beige creme. The consistency of the polish seemed quite thin and watery to me and so for the second coat I deliberately applied a thicker coat to achieve full opacity. Once this had dried I applied by freehand Max Factor's Nailfinity "Disco Pink" a hot pink creme for the French tips. I applied two coats not that it needed it but just my tips weren't all that even after one and so I tried to perfect them with a second layer. Unfortunately I was a little impatient waiting for the tips to dry before I applied the topcoat and so smudged some of the pink into the nude but it isn't too noticeable in real life.

I am really happy with this manicure and can't wait to try a nude base with Baker Street for the French tips.

What do you think? X
