Day 5 – Purple

26 May

Onwards with the challenge! I wanted to do something pretty simple for this one but using a couple of polishes that I haven’t really used much before.  I have loads of purples, it’s definitely one of my favourite colours for my nails but I chose a couple of under-used polishes in my collection – Nails Inc Onslow Gardens, a lilac shade, and OPI Honk If You Love OPI which is a rich deep purple.

I started with a base coat of the Nails Inc shade and let that dry overnight.  Once it had dried I taped across each nail diagonally and painted the remaining section with the OPI purple.

Once dried to touch I added dots in the contrasting colour to each section to make an interlocking dotted pattern – simple!! If your idea of simple is carefully placing a total of 274 dots on your nails, yes – I counted them! So what!?

I really like the finished result, I think these purples work really well together and the interconnected dots make it a little fun!!
