33DC Day 24: Art with the colour you own the most of
Today in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge it’s art with the colour you own the most of. (Ooh, a terminal preposition. The pedant in me would shout “bad grammar”! I’ll let it pass 😉 )
I own more blues than anything else. At current count, 87 of my 393 polishes are blue. That’s 22%. The next colour I have lots of is purple, and I have just 54, so blue wins by quite a margin.
I set out to do a watermarble, but it really didn’t go well and I took it all off again. I was going to my son’s school concert last night, so quickly did a new manicure and chose a new Chanel my husband bought me a couple of days ago, called Magic. It’s a gorgeous, limited edition polish that’s part of the Vogue Fashion Night Out 2013 collection. It’s a deep blue, which has a hint of teal, and so it was perfect as a blue base for something this morning.
I chose finally to do a splatter manicure. I used three polishes on top of my Chanel Magic base:
- Barry M Turquoise
- Rimmel Blue Eyed Girl
- NYC Raindrop (it’s Raindrop ccording to the bottle, or Blue Sky if you go by how it’s labelled on the shelves)
I’m very pleased with this. I love doing splatter manicures, but rarely think of doing them. The colours work well together, and (obviously) blue is my favourite colour. My husband did complain though. he said he didn’t spend £18 on a nail olish for me to splatter cheaper stuff all over it! Cheeky beggar!
These manicures are all getting a bit last minute, but at least I now have the weekend to perhaps prepare some in advance.
- Base colour: two coats of Chanel Magic
- Splatter polishes: NYC Raindrop (or Blue Sky), Rimmel Blue Eyed Girl, Barry M Turquoise
- Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri
