I'm taking part yet again (though a bit late) in the awesome Polish Days coordinated by Hannah over at Polly Polish.
Today's theme was to be MAN-icure, a nod to Movember, month in which we raise awareness to men's health issues. Since the theme was basically anything related to men in your life, I did something inspired by my boyfriend. Technically, the idea was for him to paint my nails but life happens so he couldn't. OR WOULDN'T. Point is, this is for him.
Since he couldn't do my nails personally, he did the next best thing: boss me around. His rules were: it had to be blue, he wanted something matte and he liked the holo glitter in an old post of mine. I suggested striping tape and he was all for it so I decided on a variation of THIS mani from Ms. Polly Polish herself!
I started with two coats of butter LONDON Blagger and, after doing the same stripey lattice design from Hannah's mani, I added a coat of HITS Hefesto on my ring and middle finger, and Apolo on my pinky and pointer. Obviously, pinky and pointer aren't too noticeable because I usually eff some part of it up. Then, I added the matte topcoat. But it looked hideous and lumpy so I added a shiny coat instead. Sorry babe!
He saw these and said he loved the symmetry and geometric shapes which I took as a huge compliment. If I allow myself to be mildly sappy for a moment, I have to admit I consider myself lucky to have met him. He just makes me happy and that's all I could ask for.
Hope you like this post and I will now get started on my 'Inspired by Artwork' mani for the challenge. I have a really cool idea in mind, just hope I can execute it!
Have a looksie at the other ladies taking part in Movember Polish Days!
