This week on my nails I thought I’d try out a little bit of nail art, I’ve been browsing Pinterest a lot lately and I always admire everyone’s skills with the nail polish. For a beginner I don’t feel like I’ve done too badly, although I didn’t try anything too extravagant. The base I used was OPI Mermaid’s Tears from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection a couple of years ago, it’s my favourite mint green polish as it is quite muted and more green than blue. The white stripes and spots were applied with the Barry M Nail Art Pen which I’m loving at the moment. The teal details are also Barry M but the Gelly Hi-Shine in Watermelon, which I bought ages ago and haven’t used much. The glitter polish I used is the amazing Nail Junkie by Sinful Colours which I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. The little hearts are actually nail tattoos by Skin Art and I received them in a goody bag last year, haven’t really experimented with them before but they were super easy to use.
