Hello! Um .. yeah its been a little while since I last posted, shall we blame work getting in the way? And I was away for a week… poor, neglected blog!
Anyway, today is the birthday of the lovely Hayley who is the lady behind Danglefoot polish, and I was invited by @purrfect_nails to take part in an Instagram mani collab to celebrate. Everyone was asked to produce a mani using Danglefoot polishes, and after the break you can see a collage of pics.
Don’t they all look fab? Mine is the top row, 2nd from the right. I wish I’d posed with a bottle now! Here’s a solo shot of mine:
Danglefoot Bra Off, Hair Up (red holo jelly)
Danglefoot I Have Nothing To Wear (blue holo jelly)
Barry M Coconut (off-white crème)
MoYou London Black Knight (stamping polish)
HK Girl Glisten & Glow (topcoat)
I started off with a base of Coconut as I thought a white base would make the jellies pop. On my middle and ring fingers I dry-brushed Bra Off, Hair Up and I Have Nothing To Wear and then stamped the bow and presents. This is how it looked before stamping:
I did try to use a plate from one of my Pueen sets which is full of cakes and balloons and ‘happy birthday’ messages, but I just could not get it to work. I’ve had issues with the whole set, I think they are etched shallower than others. Nothing I did would make the images pick up! So frustrating. I ended up using a bow from a Born Pretty Store plate, and the presents were off an old Cheeky plate.
The only thing left to do is wish Hayley a very happy birthday!
See you soon (a lot sooner than last time I hope!)
