Lilac Nails

Just a quick one to show you my nails this week!

Inspired by Kaylah and her expert use of nail stickers, I painted all my nails with 2 coats of Models Own Lilac Dream and allowed them to dry completely. It was a good 3 hours before I did the next stage. Then I chose my nail stickers and stuck them on the back of my hand for a few minutes to take away some of the stickiness. To apply, I pressed them down firmly on my nails, making sure none of the edges were sticking up so none of the polish seeps through. I then painted Models Own Utopia over the nail stickers, and peeled them off slowly to reveal Lilac Dream underneath. I gave them half an hour to dry and then used a top coat.
Et voila! Easy and effective.

Supplies used:

Models Own Lilac Dream
Models Own Utopia
Nail stickers (shape 5)
